What to Cook for Dinner?
When planning our meal plan it’s sometimes hard to think of ideas for dinner. Which is why I usually plan to have at least a couple family favorites and if I’m feeling adventurous I’ll try a new recipe every now and then. I also try to make seasonal meals. Changing our regular meals for each season helps keep me out of the same dinner each week rut.
During the hot and sticky summer months, I like to stick with oven-free meals and that’s what you’ll find on our meal plan this week.
Not one of the meals this week needs an oven. It’s just too hot this time of year to be running the oven. All of our meals this week will be prepared on the barbecue or in a skillet. Making for an easy dinner prep each night for me.
One day this week we’ll be having pulled pork sandwiches. I tucked a few packages into the freezer the last time I made pulled pork on the grill. It does take a while to cook a pork roast this way, but most of the time is just cooking time.
Plus I can usually find pork shoulder roast for around $1.50 a pound making the pulled pork a reasonable dinner cost wise.
