This long weekend, my family will enjoy time celebrating the unofficial end of summer with family and friends. I’m looking forward to some time at the lake, some time at the farm, birthday celebrations for Mama and Bart and lots of delicious food! I’ll be cooking so many tasty favorite foods that we all enjoy – and some of this food will work for dishes later in the week.

Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe - This easy peach cobbler makes the perfect Southern dessert! A buttery crust bakes along with the sweet peaches for the best peach cobbler in three easy steps! // addapinch.com

Homemade Hamburgers and Fixings: I’ll make my hamburger patties ahead of time and keep in the fridge until ready to grill. Prepare all of the fixings ahead of time, seal in containers and refrigerate.
Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges are made and ready to cook, and my Easy Peach Cobbler takes just a jiffy to make. I think the Caprese Salad is best made and served fresh, but my Balsamic Glaze is already made and on hand.

Best Grilled Chicken Marinade Recipe - Grilled Chicken recipes are always a crowd-pleaser. This easy grilled chicken marinade recipe will become a favorite! // addapinch.com

Grilled Chicken with Marinade: Make marinade ahead and marinate chicken ahead too for the best, most delicious and juicy chicken! I’m grilling a couple of extra chicken breasts for another meal later this week.
Easy Tortellini Pasta Salad: Delicious served warm or cold, which makes this a perfect salad to make ahead.
Strawberry Shortcake with Cream Cheese Biscuits: I get the strawberries hulled, sliced and ready to go for these ahead of time. This dessert is a regular family favorite that’s in my cookbook!

The Best Pulled Pork Recipe - This easy pulled pork recipe lets your slow cooker do all the work while making the best pulled pork! Easy, delicious, and the only pulled pork recipe you'll ever need! // addapinch.com

Sticky Molasses Ribs: These are from the cookbook.  I’ve already made the sauce and have it in a container in the refrigerator. The ribs are in the freezer and I’ll let them thaw overnight. This morning, I’ll add the ribs and sauce to the slow cooker and go on about our day of family activities.
Pulled Pork Sandwiches: Let the slow cooker do all the hard work for you. You can easily put everything into the slow cooker insert the evening before and refrigerate. If you are eating early during this holiday, then you can go ahead and let this cook during the night in your slow cooker.
Coleslaw: This coleslaw comes together in a snap, but is also a great make-ahead side dish, too. This is amazing piled atop those delicious Pulled Pork Sandwiches!
Best Southern Baked Beans: This cooks for a while to bring out that amazing, rich flavor, so you can make this earlier in the day if you wish and reheat.
Southern Potato Salad: Make the potato salad the night before and refrigerate – so easy and so good.

 Grilled Chicken Salad with Pesto Ranch Dressing Recipe makes a delicious salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, mozzarella topped with grilled chicken and a pesto ranch dressing! // addapinch.com

Grilled Chicken Salad with Pesto Ranch Dressing: This delicious salad is super make-ahead friendly – and I’ve grilled the chicken ahead when I grilled this weekend. I’ve prepped the dressing ahead and it’s chilling in the refrigerator. Chop your veggies for this salad, add the chicken and dressing and supper is served!

Skillet Caprese Chicken Recipe - This quick and easy chicken recipe is perfect for busy weeknights and delicious enough for entertaining! // addapinch.com

Skillet Chicken Caprese: This is an easy, skillet version of my Grilled Chicken Caprese dish that’s been a popular favorite for many years. So easy to make all in one skillet – and so delicious! Supper’s easy tonight too!

Some of the recipes I’ve shared for this week’s meal plan have new videos on those pages….such as the Easy Peach Cobbler, Pulled Pork Sandwiches and Coleslaw to name a few. I hope you find them helpful!

I hope you have a wonderful long weekend!
