Summer is officially in full swing, and we are here for it. The days are long, the beach bag is perpetually packed, and we have a never-ending supply of chilled rosé on hand. But between all the boardwalk ice cream cones and baseball game hot dogs, somehow you still have to get dinner on the table—well, at least a few times a week. Presenting an easy meal plan for every night in July, so you can get back to the important stuff (unicorn-shaped pool float, we’re looking at you).
