In The Kitchen, My Summer Menu

Summer… is just not the time for cooking in my house.

We usually make ahead some cut up veggies and fruit, and grill a big pack of chicken all on grocery day to make it an easy week. (Cut up a good rotisserie chicken from the grocery is a fine alternative in my book also.) These are the meals on regular rotation around here:

Salads- Romaine with garden tomatoes and cucumbers, shredded carrots and cheese, and bacon, ham, leftover grilled chicken, or eggs (or all of the above if you are my husband!).

Kebabs- Chicken or Steak grilled on kebabs with garden zucchini and onions (and lots of butter and garlic salt)

Taco Bowls- Grilled chicken with a quick pico/salsa, tortilla chips, romaine or rice, refried beans or black beans, with lots of cheese, sour cream and guac.

Quick Chicken Pasta- We usually do one of two renditions of this. Saute onions, garlic, tomatoes in olive oil, add grilled chicken and serve over pasta with basil. Or steam some broccoli, serve with chicken over pasta with some parmesan cheese.

Or if all else fails, order some pizza or wings to the pool so that you don’t have to leave!

What are your go-to meals when you don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen?
