Menu Plan Monday: Summer is Coming!

Sharing is caring!

Quick casseroles, low carbs, cool salads… yep, my menu is reflecting the outside heat!  I hope you enjoy the tastes of summer as much as I do as this week’s menu plan really celebrates all of the sweet, tangy, and tart flavors that I associate with Summertime.

In additional to our regular printable menu plan and shopping list, I have also included several Fun Summer resources (including a yummy snack) for you and your children this week.
