family-friendly dinners this week

Monday: BLT Pasta Salad is the perfect, easy weeknight meal-on-the-go. Take it to the pool, the playground, the park — wherever! Deconstruct it for picky or little eaters. Serve with sliced watermelon, lemonade, and cookies for dessert!

Tuesday: An easy-peasy dinner idea that kids LOVE: a DIY sweet potato bar. Just roast or grill sweet potatoes and set out a smorgasbord of favorite toppings. Grilled corn, avocado, lime, black beans, sour cream — possibilities are endless.

Wednesday: Make take-out for dinner! These Thai Lettuce Chicken Wraps are fun to eat and go from ingredients to table in under 20 minutes. (Really, we tried it). Serve with rice and fresh berries.

Thursday: Imagine how excited your kids will be to see peaches — on their pizza! Love this grilled peach, basil, and mozzarella flatbread. Serve with a simple tomato/cucumber salad. 

Friday: Skip the traditional burger in favor of cilantro lime chicken sliders with tomato guacamole (yes, tomato guac!). Serve with potato wedges and corn-on-the-cob. Hello, weekend!
