✔️ Clean your produce when you get home from the store. Prep ingredients like diced onions and chopped carrots ahead of time so you just need to grab a container when it's time to cook - it's like having a sous chef!
✔️ Keep your prepped foods fresh by using quality airtight containers - these are my favorite. Plus these are great for leftovers, too.
✔️ Before you shop, check your grocery store's website. Last week, I saved $9 just by clicking one little checkmark when I did my online grocery order! (Thanks, Hannaford!) You may find coupons or specials to help save you money.

Got a tip for me?
Please comment below, I'd love to hear it!
August 21 - Homemade Salisbury Steak
Forget those TV dinners of your childhood, this meal is legit.
I absolutely adore this Salisbury Steak Recipe - but it's a little bit time consuming so I like to make it on the weekends.
Serve it with Creamy Mashed Potatoes and peas, or Garlic Green Beans.
August 22 - Tilapia with Pineapple Avocado Salsa
Broiled Tilapia is a quick and easy meal. While the fish books, make the pineapple and avocado salsa.
You could also try this with our Sweet Corn, Tomato and Avocado Salsa.
I like to serve this with Quick Parmesan Risotto. Add your favorite veggie on the side if you want, or just pile on a whole bunch of extra salsa!
August 23 - Pumpkin Chicken Chili
Now if you're not a pumpkin person, I know what you're thinking - this Pumpkin Chicken Chili sounds gross. But trust me, this isn't like we're adding pumpkin pue to chili!
There's a mild pumpkin flavor, but honestly, I use pumpkin puree to help add body and thickness to this tasty chili recipe.

August 24 - Tarragon Walnut Pesto Flatbread
Because it's so quick to cook, flatbread is a great weeknight dinner option.
This Tarragon Walnut Pesto Flatbread is super flavorful.
If you're not feeling adventuous you can use Basil Pesto instead.
Serve with a salad like BLT Pasta Salad, Chicken Avocado Caprese Salad, or Fruit Salad with Orange Juice Dressing.
August 25 - Italian Style Chicken Sausage Soup
Italian Style Chicken Sausage Soup is perfect for using up leftover veggies you might have in your fridge.
Grab your favorite chicken sausage from the store and make this yummy soup right in your slow cooker.
The flavor reminds me a little bit of minestrone soup - some homey and comforting!
August 26 - Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole
Serve breakfast for dinner! Everyone raves about this Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole Recipe.
It's an all-in-one meal that's as delicious for dinner as it is for breakfast!
Serve with your favorite fruit salad.
August 27 - Southwest Chopped Salad
The beauty of this salad is you can pretty much put whatever you want on it! Grab some farm stand corn or pluck some tomatoes from your garden - the sky is the limit.
This recipe includes our recipe for creamy Southwest Chipotle Dressing.

Breakfast - Sweet Potato Spinach Quiche
One dish I love making with sweet potatoes is this Sweet Potato Spinach Quiche - it's so good!
This recipe is gluten-free.
When sweet potatoes go on sale, I stock up! They'll keep for a good long while in a cool dark spot so I keep them in a paper bag in my garage. Here are a few of my favorite sweet potato dishes:
Snacks - Peanut Butter Caramel Apple Dip
It's apple season and we're eating tons of them around here. This Peanut Butter Caramel Apple Dip is so creamy and delicious. It's a great way to get kids to eat more fruit because it's really good with pears and nectarines, too.
If you're having company, consider also making this Easy Toffee Apple Dip or our Chocolate Hummus Recipe.
Dessert - Mini Apple Tart
While this recipe takes a little bit more time than a traditional apple pie, it's so worth it.
Our Mini Apple Tarts are so impressive so they're great for holidays, parties, and potlucks. Plus they're fun for kids, too.
Game Day Grub
I know it's only preseason, but I'm excited about it being football season. I'm not really a sports fanatic, but I'm a huge fan of hanging out with the family and munching on good food! Here are a few of our favorite snacks to make on game day:
