Philly Cheesesteak Melt

It’s really easy to get into a dinner rut. You know, the same easy meals week after week. 

It’s not a bad thing. Tacos, meatballs & spaghetti, baked chicken & rice, pizza, hamburgers…. the usual. 

I always revert to the “safe” meals when I am tired. The ones I always have ingredients on hand to make. 

But…. It gets old. And Jon will start teasing me about how many times we have eaten tacos in the past week.

I love getting creative when it comes to dinner time in the summer. I don’t like to turn on my stove if I don’t have to. It makes the house too hot! So, our grill and smoker are first options when it comes to planning our menus for the week.  Read more

In case you did not know… We have a big family! Lots of kids. Six to be exact. Plus, me and my very husky, muscle man. And you know what that translates too? A LOT of food and a lot of energy to keep up with!
