Hi ya’ everyone!, Here is What’s For Supper #119. Find out what we are having for supper at Momma Can’s house! Grab a pencil and paper and plan your dinners this week with inspiration and a gentle nudge to have the best week possible! Supper time at momma’s is my best effort for getting dinner on the table with joy in my heart even on the busiest days.
The struggle is real. What am I about to gab about? Cooking in the warmer months! UGH! The heat of summer can really suck the energy out of you by the end of the day! Taking care of kids, the house, working and what not already drains a busy mom. When you add the heat of summer and all of its additional mayhem, dinner is the LAST thing we think of and yet we still must eat!
This summer we really need to collect a few quick and easy dinner ideas! This week we are kicking off with a few I feel are all-summer long worthy.
MONDAY- Pasta & Meatballs- Simpatico! – Ugh, I know it is not from scratch! But honestly, it’s hot, and kids love meatballs. These days you can find all kinds of meatballs in the freezer and refrigerator section of the grocery store! Meatless, Turkey, Chicken, Grain Free, there is something for everyone!
You can just add a bit of butter or olive oil to the pasta for the picky eaters and serve any kind of sauce you love on the side! Add a green salad or sliced fresh veggies and dinner is a winner!
TUESDAY – Tacos- 4 – Ever – Yes, it is so cliche, but this is another easy decision meal for all ages, tastebuds and allows our meat eaters and vegan souls have dinner together as one! Tip! Bulk good your proteins aka meats and beans. Dinner is only a thaw away!
WEDNESDAY – Whacky Wednesday! DIY Pizza and Salad – We love moving our traditional pizza night to Wednesdays during the summer! Weekends with older kids can be tough, because, let’s face they are growing up and spreading their wings. But family dinner must still thrive!
It may be fun to invest time in learning how to make a pizza dough! Or buy dough at the local market or just buy the pizza skins! Do What is BEST for your family!
Thursday – Travel The World At Home – We did this one summer before COVID, so I guess it was three years ago! We enjoyed mom and kiddo lunch date exploring food from a different country at a local restaurant each week and then choosing something to make for dinner that night from the same country! It was so much fun visiting local eateries along with researching different countries for family dinner topics!
Friday – Let’s Go Fishing! Okay, let’s not but add a fish item to the menu for those who love fish or for our Vegan/Vegetarian Families create the best darn salad bar for Friday Nights and enjoy a quick board game with the little ones or a themed puzzle from your Travel the World Country from yesterday with enjoy pieces to last through the weekend! ( I love a good puzzle night, brings back happy childhood memories. Try this yummy Crispy Tilapia recipe from Taste of Home.
Simple Saturday- Dinner Out 0r Sandwiches with a variety of veggies, fruits and chips and salsa.
Sunday Sunday- Let’s face it. Dinner out is fun! Grab some subs or a bucket of fried chicken and eat outdoors at sunset! Eat a local place with a magnificent sunset view. The sky is the limit. Let’s get creative on Sunday without breaking a sweat! Rest is so essential for a wonderful week!
