Meal ideas

Night 1: BLTs make the ultimate lazy summer dinner. We’ve been jazzing ours up by stirring pesto into the mayonnaise we use, adding a fried egg to the sandwich or going all-out on really good crusty bread. This week it might be time to add pimiento cheese to the mix.
Night 2: Eggplant and Olive Pizza
Night 3: Tomato and Watermelon Salad (this would be great with grilled shrimp)
Nights 4 and 5: Lasagna with spinach and peppers
Night 6: Melon and crispy prosciutto salad
Night 7: Blueberry and farro salad
