  2. A big scoop of "Stuffed Pasta Salad" served on top of a bed of romaine & spring greens is my favorite summer meal. Pretty much anything and everything is stuffed into the bowl with the pasta & dressing. Pepperoni, cheese, grilled chicken pieces, diced ham, artichoke hearts, tomatoes, olives, broccoli, kidney beans, garbanzos, peas, corn, diced avocado...YUMMY!

  3. Down here in SW Florida during the summer it is way to hot to cook in the house. The grill becomes my best friend. I have been making lots of grilled chicken salads. Every night it is a new marinade/seasoning on the chicken and for the salad lots of choices; different lettuces, cucumbers, colorful peppers, red and yellow tomatoes, carrots, cabbage, spinach, green beans, snap peas, different kinds of shredded cheese, avocado, chick peas, black beans. It is never the same salad.

  4. Grilled salads are the best! It's gto tons of stuff, grilled chicken, grilled corn (slather olive oil on corn, grill it up, then cut off the kernels), grilled tomatoes, grilled zucchini and yellow squash, grilled asparagus, grilled red onion, grilled carrot slices, grilled red peppers... And pretty much any other veggies you feel like drizzled w/ a balsamic vinegarette. Yum!!!

  5. Oooh, I made some grilled chicken BLT wraps last night that were FABULOUS! They just might be my new summertime favorite!

  6. Favorite summertime meal? Anything I don't have to make myself! I tend to take the summer's off...sometimes unintentionally. :) Maybe a new apron would help me get back to cooking again. (And by cooking, I mean MEALS instead of just desserts!)

  7. At our house we just can't wait for the red potatoes to grow in the garden. We slice them up, toss with a little oil and italian dressing mix and grill them up. We love to eat them with grilled chicken or a hamburger off of the grill and a tossed salad with green from the garden.

  8. Our favorite summertime meal is grilled BBQ chicken wraps, with some home-grown zucchini and wild rice. We have this at least once a week! Or since last night the Sweet Pork with Cilantro-lime rice and dressing...from a lovely blog I frequent! Very tasty!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Tacos are my definite favorite. Loaded with Shredded Pork (or even just ground beef if I'm feeling lazy) and fresh vegetables!
    I've been hinting to my husband to get me a new apron for over two years. I feel that an apron is something that should be given to you not purchased for yourself (I don't know why) and he has yet to pick up on the hint.

    ReplyDelete

  36. Summer time is great for trying new salads. I would love to have a new apron my daughter just got one so it would be nice for me to have a new one to wear while I am teaching her how to cook. She now wants to be a chef and has enjoyed trying some of your recipies.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would be fine with fresh vegetables from the garden and a fruit salad. Of course, my husband doesn't think it's a meal without meat so we'd have to add some meat too.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Fruit Salad, definitely! Soaked in orange juice for a while. Drain off the fruit and save the juice. It doesn't taste like OJ anymore and the fruit salad is so juicy and tasty. The OJ becomes a wonderful and yummy fruit juice blend! I love your blog by the way.
