Menu Plan July 18

Light and easy pretty much describes most of our meals during the summer. And that is the theme for this week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap [2]. Renee at Beyond Rice and Tofu [2] is hosting the swap, so be sure to check out what she has planned for meals this week.

A few of my favorite ideas for keeping the cooking heat out of the kitchen during the summer:

  • Leftovers: Cook plenty so you can quickly heat up leftovers in the microwave later in the week.
  • Rely on salads: Fresh fruits and vegetables and even chilled cooked meats will help you stay cooler.
  • Use smaller, or thinner, cuts of meat: They will cook up in a matter of minutes on a hot grill!
  • Use your slow cooker outside: Why not place it on your patio or deck to keep the cooking and heat outside?

On Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:
