Summer Foods

Around my house, dinner is very important. We’ve got three busy teenagers and us two adults are even busier. So by the end of the day we are all starving! When it comes to summer foods, I have a really hard time mustering up the energy to even think about cooking dinner, let alone actually cooking it! It’s too hot!! But alas, we cannot eat out every night. Luckily for me, my Mister is an amazing cook and is always willing and able to whip something tasty up for the rest of us!

Recently he’s outdone himself on a couple of meals. So I thought I’d share those with you!

Gaze upon this taco of beauty! Fresh Cilantro, goat cheese, sauteed mushrooms, tomatoes, fresh jalapenos and chipotle spiced chicken. YUM! What’s your favorite way to make tacos?

I have a thing about pretty food. If it looks pretty and colorful, I probably want to eat it. So, I was flipping through a recent copy of Bon Appetite Magazine, when I stumbled across this recipe. We needed something for dinner that night, so I suggested we get the grill out and make some tasty chicken!

Spicy Grilled Chicken With Lemon & Parsley: Grilling is perfect for summer. All the heat stays outside and the grill makes the food taste amazing!
