There are many things I love about summer meals but even better than fresh produce, meals under the patio umbrella and not heating up the kitchen, I love the simplicity of our meals. I keep it SIMPLE! Simple to meal plan, simple to shop, simple to cook.
Grilled meat + a green salad or fresh veggie + fresh fruit + some type of grain
Nearly every meal is some variation of this and I adapt a lot of our favorites to fit into this meal plan.
Chicken marinated in Italian dressing & grilled + Italian salad + fruit + garlic pasta
Chicken marinated in Caesar dressing & grilled, served on grilled buns brushed w/garlic oil + Italian salad + fruit + grilled zucchini
South of the Border Inspired
Grilled lime chicken, sliced & served on tortillas with all the fixings+ grilled pineapple + arroz verde al poblano or cilantro lime rice
Mexican roadside chicken + salad + Mexican roasted corn + fruit
Tequila chicken + roasted potatoes with gremolata (cooked on the grill) + fruit + salad
Pizza on the grill + salad
Steak + beer bread + salad + garlic green beans + fruit
Brown sugar bourbon pork chops + biscuits + salad + fruit
