Since May, I’ve been riding my bike to the weekly farmers market, donning my mask, and buying up all the good stuff I can cram into my backpack. Now that it’s late summer, things are really rolling around here on the produce scene.
Mid-week, I cruise to our favorite farm stand and load up on sweet corn, plus whatever other goodies they may have to offer: ripe peaches, cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes, blackberries, watermelon—this is what we dream of all year long!
This week’s meal plan keeps that momentum going. Even if your farmers market happens to be a standard grocery store, you can still embrace the glory of summer produce.
Whether the vegetables came from your own backyard or the produce aisle, we picked recipes everyone can dive right into.
One last thing: Looking for dinner ideas? You’re in the right spot! We have delicious meal plans to suit every taste and lifestyle—Healthy Eating, Family Favorites, and Vegetarian just to name a few.
These one-month plans are $6.95 and, with them, you get a dessert and weekend prep recipe and a shopping list. They’re beautifully designed and perfect to print and save or simply load and cook right from your computer!
