Welcome to meal plan 29! This week we're enjoying a southwestern breakfast treat for dinner, easy main dishes, and cool salads that make the most of summer produce.
📅 Food Holidays
We celebrate a couple of fun food holidays this week. They're silly little holidays but it gives us an opportunity to make some memories and have some fun!
🍹This week's cocktail
Give the Alabama Slammer a try this weekend. This beautiful, bright red cocktail is kind of like Hawaiian Punch for adults.
💭 Tips for success
- If there are deviled chicken leftovers cut them up and add them to a big, crunchy salad for lunch.
- Or you can use it in the King Ranch Chicken Casserole.
- Put a scoop of vanilla ice cream between two of the lavender cookies for yummy ice cream sandwiches.
- Cucumbers in sour cream make a great sandwich filling. It may sound weird but try it if you have leftovers.
- I love fried green tomatoes on burgers, try it!
- Banana pudding yogurt parfaits can be made well ahead of time in jelly jars, covered with a screw on lid, and kept in the fridge for a grab and go breakfast or snack.
This vintage recipe is still a winner in my book! Deviled Chicken has a crispy breadcrumb coating with just a little kick. The bone-in chicken breast stays moist and tender.
Creamy cucumber salad has always been on of my favorite dishes. I love the leftovers spooned onto white bread and made into a sandwich.
Peach Cobbler Dump Cake
This is a throw together dessert that just couldn't be easier! Peach cobbler with a 2 minute prep time!
July 10: Breakfast for Dinner!
I love a good caramel latte - and this one is simple to make.
Banana pudding yogurt parfait tastes like a dessert but it's a great way to start, or end, a day.
This vintage recipe is just as good today as you remember! Lipton onion burgers are always tender and juicy!
Try a few of these pickled onions on your burgers!
Creamy, cheesy goodness with a crispy topping! Broccoli casserole is a delicious addition to this meal.

King Ranch Chicken
King Ranch chicken is a quick and easy classic that's easy on the budget and big on flavor.

Buttery and flaky! Classic buttermilk biscuits are easy to make and freeze well, too.
Fried Green Tomatoes

Strawberries & Cream Angel Food Cake
This is such a quick and easy dessert! Strawberries & cream angel food cake starts with a purchased angel food cake to keep it simple.
Pulled Pork Casserole
Use up leftover pulled pork or carnitas in this easy pulled pork casserole that's a bit like a tamale pie.
Pear salad is a southern classic with canned pears and mayo. I've updated it quite a bit with grilled pears, candied pecans, and bleu cheese.
German Apple Pie
This creamy apple pie recipe is not like your regular apple pie! It's SO delicious - you've got to try it.
Chicken Fajita Pasta
One pot chicken fajita pasta is SO easy and almost no clean up! Tender and juicy chicken breast seasoned just right is stirred together with penne pasta in a deliciously creamy sauce.

Cowboy Caviar, Texas Caviar... whatever. I love the tangy, earthy flavors of this black eyed pea salad.
