Summer Dinner Menus

Please make these your own. I am so often asked for meal planning or menus that I will be adding some ideas for you as I can. Remember, these are just ideas based on the season. I try to do dairy and wheat free menus but occassionally you will see either. Not everyone has an intollerance to those foods. These are things I like to eat and cook, if it sounds complex, take the bare bones of the idea of the menu and make your own salad dressing for example, sauce, rub or pesto- whatever. Cooking is a divine experiment. Have fun! Get your hands messy and ENJOY!
