Lighter Food Menu Plan #9

Sharing is caring!

High temps and hot weather has brought out our Lighter Food Menu Plan with simple meals, lots of salads and favorite sandwiches.

Lighter Food Menu Plan has some favorite summer dishes and salads

Here in the deep south, we have ‘feels like’ temps based on the humidity. We’ve already reached triple digits in our ‘feels like’ temps and it’s early June! Just like we look forward to soups in the fall, we are glad to break out the salads and sandwiches in the summer.



Chicken & Veggie Pasta Salad

If you’ve been following my menu’s, you know how much I love the Cook Once Eat Twice idea. I’ll prepare enough chicken on Sunday for our sandwiches on Monday. You can easily buy a Rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.
