10 Simple Meals for Summer

And just like that, it’s officially summer! Well, okay fine, unofficially, but we all know that Memorial Day is totally the marker for the start of the season.

Plus, it’s hot. And the heat has some sort of magical power that brings on my complete and utter laziness when it comes to cooking dinner.

So, it seems like an appropriate time to chat about these 10 simple meals for summer!

They are all recipes from the archives that I wanted to bring back to your attention – show em’ a little love! Because man, are they deeeelicious.

All are 100% easy, quick and completely satisfying (umm, we need to fuel up for all that lounging around by the pool with popsicles, yes?!).

I’m pretty sure that low maintenance is the only way to go during the lazy days of the season! So, three cheers for sunshine and popsicles and flip-flops and of course, simple meals! Let’s do this!
