Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan: Mediterranean Chicken Burger at Cooks With Soul

It’s officially grilling season and that means many weeks of burgers ahead. Instead of going for traditional beef burgers out of the gate, I’m opting for these delicious, healthier Mediterranean-style Chicken, Feta, and Spinach Burger with Tzatziki Sauce at Cooks With Soul this week. Tasty, and all that spinach packed into the patty so little ones don’t have to necessarily know. Or at least care — because burgers win.

Cool Mom Eats weekly meal plan: Homemade hot dog toppings at Jelly Toast blog

It’s been grey and rainy all week in NYC and though I don’t know what next week has in store, I’m meal planning for summer weather — come rain or shine.

You can make all three toppings, just two, or even just one. No matter what, they’ll make Friday more fun.
