Brown Eggs and Jam Jars cookbook

Happy summer friends! I hope this week’s meal plan finds many of you on vacation. In our house, summer vacation still means we are cooking for family and friends so I’m still making a loose plan of the dinners ahead. As time slows down here at the beach house, it’s a fun opportunity to try some new recipes. All the magazine reading at the beach pays off in the kitchen!


You will see a little less content around here this month as we spend time as a family at the beach. It’s hard to find time to sit at a computer when the sand is just a few steps away. Follow along our summer adventure over on Instagram.

On the menu…

Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad

Make the salad in the morning and it will be ready after a fun day in the sun. (image)

Sunday~ Lobsters and Steak. A perfect summer dinner. Plus lots of fresh greens and veggies from my Dad and stepmom’s garden. We never leave hungry from their house.

Monday~ Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad. I found this recipe in my Instagram feed this week and can’t wait to make it. Large platter salads are generally a win with the kids since they get to control what they pick out. We “gently” encourage them to put everything on their plate, even if they don’t eat it. It’s a great chance to give everyone exposure to the rainbow.

Tuesday~ Hamburgers, oven fries and corn on the cob. Super simple…but a little extra special with lime juice for the corn instead of butter.

Wednesday~ Dinner out in Gloucester. So many choices…

Thursday~ Oven to Grill Baby Back Ribs and coleslaw. The inspiration for this recipe is here, but I may tweak it and cook it in the foil packets in the crock pot instead. No need to introduce more heat in the house!

Friday~Hot dog dinner post beach and then off to see the fireworks!

Saturday~ Family BBQ. I’m making the Sugar Snap Pea, Tomato and Orzo salad from Brown Eggs and Jam Jars.  (you could also try this Beet Orzo salad)

    We love platter salads, too. Truly, anything served “platter style” is a hit around here. Your vacation at the beach sounds lovely. I popped over from Have a wonderful day!
