When we think of comfort food, we often think about chilly days, warming foods, and crackling fires. (Well, at least I do!) But comfort food can be a seasonal experience too.

Comfort food, to me, is often about time and place. About remembering tastes and moments and people. And giving life to those moments, memories, and people as we make them once again.

This week’s menu is about hearty food that’s easy to prepare, has abundant flavor… and summer meanings.

June Healthy Comfort Food Dinners Menu

Monday’s dinner is inspired by Juneteenth recipes that are healthy, flavorful, and easy to make. Often foods served on this historic day are red foods, believed to commemorate Black Americans’ lives and hard-won freedom. Monday’s dinner is a healthier, delicious southern classic I’m drooling over, and to round it out, we’re making a batch of Al Roker’s Skillet Cornbread.

If you’re serving a dessert, consider red foods (like anything strawberry) or a traditional Red Velvet Bundt Cake.

Tuesday’s dinner is a seafood sheet pan dinner ready in 20 minutes. And everything, including the rice, is cooked in one pan! Add a large summer salad.

Wednesday’s dinner takes us to the Mediterranean with a simple Greek Chicken skillet dish ready in 30 minutes or less. Again, add a salad and maybe a warmed pita too.

Thursday’s dinner reminds me of a seafood ratatouille. I’m in love with the colors of this dish and how easy it is to prepare. And it’s ready in about 25 minutes.

Friday’s dinner is a quick and easy Thai dish made with ground beef, although you can swap that for any meat you prefer. Served over rice, it’s an easy takeout meal made at home.

Treat: Keeping with a “red” theme; we’re making Strawberry Cobbler in a skillet. Simple, delicious, and perfect for strawberry season.

Have a beautiful week!
