Meal Plan: July 3rd

The summer months are best spent with family and friends picnicking, grilling, lounging in parks, visiting beaches, and watching fireworks wherever possible!

On Sunday, prep this creamy Strawberry Pretzel Salad- a Southern dessert staple, so it's ready to go on Monday with the burgers and sweet potato fries. Cheers the holiday with Red, White, and Blue Sangria.

This week is packed with Latin flavors, with a spicy skirt steak and pork tacos (the steak would make an excellent addition to these tacos if you have leftovers!)

The kids will love making this Pop Art Watermelon. Plus, these coconutty fonio parfaits are a must-try!

This version of a Southern classic uses a homemade pomegranate juice jello with no artificial sweeteners, artificial flavorings, or food coloring, so you're left to relish the floral vanilla bean, tangy pomegranate, and sweet strawberry flavors.

TUESDAY Salsa Macha Skirt Steak
By @Andrealoretdemola

Salsa Macha is HOT, a little goes a long way but once the heat subsides you’ll want more!  @Andrealoretdemola recommends serving this with something cooling like a cucumber salad or cooling toppings such as avocado, crema, and lime juice.
