Let’s use this thread to share concise weekly dinner menus for each week in July. Are you making no-cook salads and desserts? Grilling hotdogs - on the end of stick over a campfire, on a grate over coals or on your oven’s broiler pan? What’s planned from the COTM (Cookbook of the Month – Deep Run Roots by Vivian Howard), DOTM (Dish of the Month – either Potato Salad or Salsa, when voting decides), or the Summer quarterly baking book (Dorie’s Cookies, by Dorie Greenspan)?
Planning meals ahead helps you make sure everybody in the family gets something they like during the week.
You may choose to report actuals for the prior week to share ideas with others and as your own reality-check for next week’s plans. We all know plans change, so no worries if something drops off your list or gets added.
It's helpful if you can include your location and how many people you are feeding. Links to recipes are always appreciated, and sources help.
The June discussion is still available for reporting the last week and follow-ups.
