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.
Each spring I tiptoe out to my garden to check the buds on our perennials and the blossoms on our apple trees, and to plant seeds for early-season vegetables. As an avid gardener, I want to spend these extra hours of daylight outside with my hands in the dirt.
My kids have cabin fever as well. By this time in the season their bike tires have been inflated, their jackets flung off, and they want to spend their afternoons in the crisp spring air.
Dinner for this week is all about quick, simple, and not overly fussy meals. Friday’s dish will take the most time, but hopefully the weather is warm and your time at the stove can be rewarded with dinner outside on the deck.
