Okay, so by this part of the pandemic none of us have any original ideas left to do or share, bake or make. We have been cooking and crafting and climbing the walls for months on end, right? So, what’s next? Maybe a summer cooking challenge is exactly what you need.
This month, I might try one of those subscription meal delivery services again, just to change out up a bit. The kids like those and frankly sometimes I can inspire them to get involved making the meals with me. Occasionally, we also find a new favourite recipe out of the experience. They can be a bit expensive though and Coronavirus means I am being a but careful with anything packaged.
Summer Cooking Should Be Lighthearted
In the winter months, I am all about the crock pot dinners and Instapot meals. It’s so incredibly convenient to have that option. Summer is all about the barbecue here. Grilling and chilling. So, thank goodness we have a lot of barbecue meal ideas.

Take My Summer Cooking Challenge
Out of creative ideas? Make a recipe with granola, a dessert with fruit or food shaped like an animal. Everyone loves funky fun teddy bear pancakes, or heart shaped red pancakes. Strawberry and fruit kabobs?
Side Dishes for Dinner? Try to think outside of the box. A great risotto, noodles, or steamed vegetables with a sprinkling of cheese. Soup maybe even. Check out my Italian Wedding Soup recipe coming up next week.
