Summer Menu Planning

It's ridiculously hot.
I cannot plan any meals that will actually require cooking!

I think we will be fine with sandwiches, salads, and any other cold food we can find today!
But then - I  really need to come up with a summer friendly menu plan!!
(And make it work with all of my family's food aversions, allergies, and intolerances, which will be quite a feat!)

I'd love to hear all of your ideas.

Here's what I have so far:

Vegetable Salad - make your own
Potato Salad
Felafel night (using premade felafel balls, because I can't make homemade ones when it's so hot)
Sandwiches of various kinds
Fruit Soup
Vegetarian liver, cold lentil dip, egg salad, other dips- to go with crackers or breads and cut vegetables

I wish I had more ideas!
Please help me out!


  1. Pasta salad. Rice salad. I can't think of anything else, sorry.

  2. I use my crock pot for so much in the summer time. I still like warm foods such as soup and lentils when it is warm out so throwing all the ingredients into the crockpot and coming back to a fully prepared meal hours later without heating up the house makes me very happy.
