For me a quick summer meal is a sandwich and chips, but for those of you that have a more discerning palette, here are 101 ideas for summer meals that take less that 10 minutes, courtesy of the New York Times.
I’ve never been much of a cook. It’s just something I don’t have a knack for. Many have tried to teach me and most ran screaming from the kitchen after an hour with me. My husband says he likes to cook, but I simply think it does so out of self defense. In fact, he is a pretty good cook, especially when he has the grill going.
When my husband is home, we grill out a lot in the summer, but he’s always looking for some other ideas light, quick ideas for the hectic nights. So I was thrilled with finding this list for him.
This list has a lot of great ideas that we would really enjoy if it was the two of us, but now that we have the twins we need child-friendly meals. And unfortunately, many of the ideas on this list just aren’t.
Guess we are back to my repetoire of sandwiches and hot dogs (oh didn’t I mention my speciality?) for meals with the twins. But for those of you with older kids or without the children all together, enjoy!
