This month, Summer Miller is back, sharing her meal plans for April. Summer is a mom, a full-time food writer, and also helps test the fabulous recipes we bring you every week at Simply Recipes.
This is about the time of year when home gardens and farm stands start bursting with produce. The best of which is not only visually stunning on the plate, but also often refreshing made into a beverage and served in highball glass.
Which is why I’m including a few summery drink recipes in this month’s meal plan, some with alcohol and some without. They’ll make your front porch-sitting activities even more relaxing.
This week’s meal plan is about making the most of what remains of early season fruits and vegetables, such as strawberries and peas, while also enjoying the first tomatoes and corn of the season and our love of all things grilled.
It starts out light with a bright, and vibrant pea soup that can be served hot or cold and ends with the my favorite backyard burgers on the grill paired with an herb and citrusy rhubarb spritzer. Cheers!
