Menu for week of 7/8 - 7/14

It is going to be in the triple digits this week, so lighter fare for the most part.  Although we'll be using it a bit, the oven stays off whenever possible and we use the crockpot, pressure cooker etc more often.  Do you eat seasonally?

Homemade pulled pork sliders on oven baked sweet potato slices.
