I think this might be the most beautiful week of weather Indianapolis has had in the past year! It is in the the mid-seventies and it hasn’t rained for a few days. The humidity hasn’t come yet and I will take it! Needless to say we have been spending a ton of time outdoors and we even swam in the pool a couple of times. This is what summer is supposed to look like!
When the warm weather rolls in, our menu changes a little bit. My family loves fruit and vegetables and there isn’t a salad that we won’t gobble up! These seem to be the foods that we gravitate towards in June and July.
Yes, for those of you who know my son, he does love salad!
I have a couple of picky eaters so sometimes I need to get creative for them to enjoy fresh vegetables. One of my favorite ways is to serve them up with our favorite Hidden Valley Ranch dressing and dip!
If I am going to be completely transparent, I enjoy my Hidden Valley Ranch dressing on a lot more than just vegetables and salad. We love to dip our chicken, french fries, and even our pizza in ranch. My daughter is obsessed and puts in on just about everything. They say that you either love it or you really love it… she really loves it!
During the summer we also always have a container of Hidden Valley Ranch dip in our fridge for picnics and cookouts and family functions. Its quick and easy and goes perfect with chips! Lately we have been making sure we are stocked up when we get our weekly groceries from Walmart. We love shopping at Walmart because it is super convenient. We can get everything we need for summer entertaining at a low-cost, one-stop shopping center, and they offer pick up! It is such a time-saver for this busy mom.
