This month, we welcome back Marta Rivera for more of her meal plans. Marta is a trained chef, mom of twins, and wife to a newly-retired soldier!

I’m living in Central Texas … in July! It’s hot and I’m miserable. Beating the dog days of summer takes on a whole new meaning when the thermometer is kissing 120°F.

My meal selections for this week take the high summer temps into account. I’ll keep cool with slow cooker meals, grilling options, and quick pan-fries. A refreshing drink recipe is thrown in for good measure, too.

It won’t matter how long this heatwave lasts, so long as we’re cool and efficient in the kitchen!
