When summer gets into full swing, it seems like dinners can be a bit challenging. Schedules change, days are long and fun and active.

Or, the summer heat is so intense that cooking doesn’t seem as inviting as it does during other seasons.

I’m hoping this menu gives you some ideas on what to cook this week. Simple dinners, big on flavor, and ready in 15 minutes (give or take a couple).

Plus, they’re healthy, family friendly, and simple.

Here’s this week’s menu.

15 Minute Summer Dinners

Monday’s dinner is a meatless, healthy bowl of southwestern flavors that makes for a simple meal to pull together in minutes.

I’m rather excited about Tuesday’s dinner. It’s a Jamie Oliver 15 minute dinner, bold with flavor, as his recipes are, and simple. Serve family style and gather everyone around the table. Make extra chicken for leftovers.

On Wednesday, we’re headed to the Mediterranean for a simple and summery Greek salad, packed with flavors we love. A reader on Pinterest suggested adding chicken to the salad for a well-rounded dinner. And that’s what I’ve done. Thank you for the suggestion!

Thursday night is grill night (and if you don’t have access to a grill, the oven works just fine too). It’s a mix and match dinner that will keep everyone happy.

On Friday, we’re making a 15 minute dinner that will have you thinking “takeout” at home.

The treat? You know there always is one. It’s all about summer, and quick and easy treats under 100 calories.

Have a wonderful week!
