A Week of Meals that Start the Summer Off Right
It’s officially Summer today, which means long days by the pool, lots of fresh summer produce, and busy camp schedules.
To celebrate (and to help you in the dinner category), we’ve created a seasonal, easy, and fun weekly menu for you and your family.
We hope this menu helps kick off what will be an amazing season for you all!

This summery dish appeals to all palates! What could be better than bright toasted corn alongside gnocchi cooked al dente in a rich, meaty sauce?
Tuesday: Sushi Party!
By Chayie Schlisselfeld
If your family is anything like mine, you can relate to this. Some like their “sushi” with just rice and cucumbers, while others like just plain kani, and then we have the real ambitious ones that will take some salmon and mango slices. I like to make a big sushi platter to serve for a supper that will make everyone happy. Keep the components separate so everyone can choose.

My family loves BBQ sauce on everything, but I don’t love some of the ingredients in the store-bought kind. This no-cook, homemade version is easy to make with things you probably already have in your pantry. It makes the perfect marinade for chicken, and the flavors really come out when meat is grilled, whether on an outdoor grill or indoors on the stovetop version. Serve it with a tortilla, dinner roll, or baguette and make sure to pile on some toppings, like roasted peppers, jalapeños, cilantro, and more.
