Meal Plan July 4, 2016

Have you moved outside yet? We set up a table on our deck and even have breakfast out there this time of year. Whether you’ve got a back yard or just a little balcony like me, all these meals will taste better outside, I promise. And on Friday why not make it a full on picnic? We love heading to our local park to meet up with other families for an easy going way to have a family “dinner party.” There might even be adult drinks in some of the water bottles… just sayin’. However you roll, we hope you enjoy this week’s menus of easy, summer dinners. Let us know how it’s going! Check in on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with #spcmealplan.
