What to Make For Dinner this Week is a series by guest food contributor Sarah Waldman.
It is hot and sticky here in New England so this week I am sharing five dinner ideas that lessen the humidity-grump-factor. When it is really hot out I stick to simple meals like sandwiches and wraps that can sit chilling in the fridge. I also try to cook after the sun does down or before it rises so the house doesn’t overheat too quickly. As always, I happily look to the slow cooker to help churn out a plate of warm food without overheating the kitchen. I hope some of these meals make it onto your dinner table this week.

We’ve been in Utah at my parents new home all week. They moved from New York to Tokyo 3 years ago, and then to a small mountain town near Park City, Utah this past fall. It’s been our first summer visit and it’s heavenly. Hikes, sunsets, swimming, boating, tennis, cousins, fireworks in the parking lot, and copious amounts of ice cream (image above from my instagram). Hope you’re up to something summery as well this week! Have a great one, here are some links to explore:
