Do you hate coming up with a dinner menu as much as I do?!? It’s one of those jobs that I need to do but I always put it off until the LAST minute because I never know what to make. When Mike and I got married I started making a weekly menu for our dinners. This helps me spend less at the grocery store because I only pick up the items I need for those specific dinners and then whatever else we need. Menu planning makes it so much easier to make a grocery list and you spend less time at the grocery store because you know exactly what you need to be picking up. Can I just stop and say “Hallelujah” to spending LESS time at the grocery store! But before the grocery store, comes making that dinner menu and that can be a grueling task. I know as a newlywed I didn’t have a box of tried and true recipes that I knew we loved, so it was much harder to make a menu for the week when I was constantly trying new meals. I feel like I’m only starting to get a nice amount of tried and true recipes that we love and we’ve been married for over 4 years! Over the past 4 years I have searched Pinterest and asked friends and family for their favorite meals. It’s always nice to know that someone else really liked it before you make it. Well friends, today I am starting a new series for you. I want to start sharing with you the meals that we love! Hopefully I can help soon to be married couples, just married couples and even those that have been married for years and are stuck in the dinner rut. Mike and I love food, so starting this series is exciting for me :) I can’t wait to share with you all the fun recipes we’ve found over the years! First up…
I found this recipe in one of my Real Simple Magazines not too long after Mike and I got married. I think it’s a great meal for the Summer. It’s light and refreshing and it’s one of our favorites! Ingredients
I hope you all love this meal as much as we do!! If you try it, let me know what you think! Happy Friday!
