It is hot, hot, hot where we live right now. Most of the recipes for this week are for the grill, where my amazing husband gladly takes over. 🙂 Any meal that can be done on the grill is usually easy to prepare as well as easy to clean up. And the summertime is a great time to take advantage of the grill and all the great flavor you get from cooking your food on it.
Another way to plan your meals is to reuse ingredients throughout the week. You will see in this menu the Spinach Pesto is used not only to garnish the grilled chicken but used on top of the turkey burgers as well. Any way to reuse ingredients will save you money and prevent you from having to throw away food (a.k.a. money). And no one wants to throw away money. Make the first bite count!
