Looking for dinner inspiration? Here's what I've planned for dinner at our house this week! And then some...

Summer is here. After a week of what felt like constant rain, the temperatures jumped. Now the Connecticut humidity is creeping in, and I have to admit I'm not that excited about it.

But the weather is the only part of summer we're experiencing these days. Our schedules haven't slowed down one bit. We've attended a handful of barbecues already and are hosting one at our house next weekend. Our sweet girl starts back at day camp the following week... then Stephen and I will each be traveling for work.

We may have a breather in August.

Despite being busy and having to juggle quite a bit, I've found our weekly menu plans have been a saving grace. Yes, I've had to dig deep to actually plan our dinners. Yes, I've had to find the energy to place our grocery orders online. But, wow... did I felt so accomplished when I got to check those things off my to-do list.

If anything, I need to keep meal-planning to stay somewhat sane. So here's what I've planned for dinner at our house over the next few days...

And, as a bonus, keep reading to see our menu plans from the last three weeks... You know, the ones I didn't get around to sharing. They may not be timely, but they may help spark inspiration for you as you plan dinners for your family!
