Tortellini Salad for Summer One Pot Dinners: What to Cook (Aug 3)

August begins the very heart of summer. The end of the month — concludes with the dog days of summer.

I read this quote that perfectly describes the month:

“The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color. Often at night, there is lightning, but it quivers all alone.”

~Natalie Babbitt (author of Tuck Everlasting)

We’re celebrating the first week of August as “the very top of summer” with easy one-pot dinners and simple ingredients.

With the intention of more time embracing summer, spending time with family, and less time cleaning up.

Add a salad with every meal and look for fresh in-season vegetables to round out the meals. Swap recipe ingredients for those easily found in your area.

Don’t forget the summer berries. They make delicious additions to any salad! 

Have a great week everyone!
