Summer is definitely in full swing where we live! My kids have been enjoying some pool time when the weather allows and we’ve been lathering up on sunscreen to avoid the burns. And with all the outside time, we cookout on the grill quite a bit. But there are times we need or have to be inside, so meal plans help me keep some food on hand that I can cook quickly!

Summer is in full swing, but that doesn't mean you have to scramble to find a meal to cook! Check out our Regular & Instant Pot Meal Plans for the month of July! They include summer salads, meals, grilling options and more! :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com

July has some fun food holidays, so if you’re inclined to celebrate be sure to check them out! July is National Ice Cream Month, which means you’ll want to try your hand at these Homemade Ice Cream recipes. It is also National Pickle Month, so give these recipes that include pickles or pickled food a go! And these BBQ & Grilling recipes and Seafood Grilled recipes will be a hit all summer long!

Below you will find two meal plans. On the regular meal plan, slow cooker meals remain on Sundays and Wednesdays or for those times you need a meal ready-to-eat. If you’d like to switch up some of the Slow Cooker Meals to an Instant Pot recipe, check out my beginners post in the series for a great link to help! This meal plan also includes grilled options on Friday nights to kick off your weekend!

On the Instant Pot Meal Plan, I have included some delicious Summer Meals, a variety of meats (fish, chicken, pork, beef), a few salads and more! Also, the suggestions for breakfasts, lunches, snacks and desserts at the bottom are all Instant Pot recipes!

Feel free to move any of the recipes around as needed to fit your family’s schedule. You can even mix and match the two meal plans! There is a variety of meats (fish, chicken, beef, pork) as well as soups and salads (on both plans) to keep the whole family happy. My hope each month is that you will find some new favorites to add to your own must have rotation.
