Here we are! Another Monthly dinner round-up! Last April, I started posting my nightly dinners on Instagram <—— follow me!
I love going back and seeing what I make! August was full of using the bounties from our garden. I made a lot of dishes using eggplant, tomatoes, potatoes, and herbs from our garden.
In August, I was 7 months pregnant, so one might assume that our dinners would get unhealthier and lazier. Actually though, I am craving salads and vegetable soups more than ever.
Here is everything my family made for dinner in August!
Due to the death of a family member on my husband’s side, I did not document dinner on August 1st.
