    Whether you are hanging out with the kids all summer shuttling them from camp to camp or from pool to pool, or you’re struggling to balance working from home while keeping the kids occupied, or just working right through as if summer were like any other season, I don’t want you to have to worry about dinner either. I want you to get through the busy-busy-fun-busy-fun summer without batting an eye about dinner or spending too much money on takeout or fast food.

    That’s why I’ve pulled together another fantastic meal plan for you…this one featuring delicious, fresh meals that will get you through those hot, summer afternoons.

    This meal plan contains a hodgepodge of different kinds of recipes, some freezer friendly, some potluck or cookout friendly, some for the grill. You’ll find:

    • Pasta Salads
    • Pre-marinated Chicken & Pork Chops for the grill (or oven)
    • Burgers & Kebabs for the grill
    • Slow cooker freezer packs & other freezer friendly meals

    In addition to the regular shopping list, recipe list and assembly/video instructions for the plan, I also shot a new video explaining how to work with the different fresh ingredients and ingredients you might want to get at the grocery store.


    We have included Gluten Free modifications to each of the recipes.


    We have included Dairy Free modifications to each of the recipes.


    We have included Whole30 & Paleo modifications on SOME of the recipes too. There are pasta salads and sloppy joes on this plan and those are hard to modify for Whole30/Paleo, but we have included simple modifications on the other meals to make them Whole30/Paleo compliant.

    You can expect the same great shopping list, recipes list, printable labels, assembly instructions and access to exclusive video of yours truly assembling all the meals.

    {It only took just over 1 hour to put together 12 meals for the freezer…and you can watch the video of the assembly process so you don’t feel alone in your efforts. I also included cooking demos of the other 3 pantry-staple recipes for you in the assembly video! }

    Below is the ‘hodgepodge’ of recipes, all written to serve a family of 4. Larger families or families with bottomless pits (also known as teenage boys!) can easily modify to make larger portions for a single meal. I’ve also included salad and veggie side options on this shopping list.

    Check out this delicious-ness:

    • 3 Italian Pasta Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Artichokes
    • 3 Greek Pasta Salad with Homemade Lemon Vinaigrette
    • 2 Grilled Lemon Pepper Chicken
    • 2 Grilled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
    • 2 Slow Cooker Caribbean Chicken
    • 2 Pineapple Bourbon or Teriyaki Pork Chops
    • 2 Feta Burgers with Grilled Red Onions
    • 2 Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes
    • 2 BBQ Meatball Kebabs
