This week’s easy family meal ideas include fresh seasonal dishes your crew is going to love. From a savory Squash & Cornbread Dressing to Zucchini Muffins and easy Skillet Blackberry Cobbler. This is what seasonal southern eating is all about!
This weekend’s Saturday 7 collection featured 7 Garden Fresh Recipes to Make Now; however, I’ve got several more seasonal goodies up my sleeve (& in my recipe box) that I am just itching to share! Those extra goodies come together in this week’s Monday Menu for some amazingly fresh and delicious meal ideas your family’s gonna completely dig.
Right now, the farmers’ markets and roadside stands are overflowing with colorful, plump fruits and veggies that are just waiting to be sliced, stirred, sautéed and served at your table. And talk about good eating. Summer’s best produce it where it’s at.
Dessert This Week!
It’s time to load up on those blackberries at the Farmer’s Market. And delicious southern blackberry cobbler doesn’t come any easier than with this simple recipe! With plump, juicy berries and an easy crisp, golden crust, this Skillet Blackberry Cobbler recipe uses the magic of cast iron to effortlessly bake up the perfect summer dessert!
Here’s What We’re Snacking On
More garden goodness abounds in the recipe. Tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, even a little cilantro from the herb garden… all are perfect picks for throwing together a little fresh restaurant quality salsa! It’s so easy, but SO delicious!
Making Breakfast Easy
Wondering what to do with ALL that zucchini? Grab a cup of coffee and get ready for a tasty breakfast everyone (yes, even those picky eaters) will ask for again and again! These Carrot Zucchini Muffins are a cinnamon-y delicious seasonal breakfast option. Want to go for all zucchini? Replace the carrots in this recipe with an extra portion of zucchini instead.
