Summer Suppers

Last night we had what I consider to be a quintessential summer supper: BLT's with sliced tomatoes from a locally grown produce stand, cantaloupe, tortilla chips with fresh garden salsa and Klondike Ice Cream bars for dessert, enjoyed outside on my mother in law's screened-in porch. The best part is, there was enough left over for lunch today!

The truth is, I threw this meal together when I realized in the grocery store that I had planned enough meals for not only the weekend but the rest of the week-- and inadvertantly left out a meal for that evening! It was a simple and quick meal to throw together-- which had to be the case since we walked in from grocery shopping and errand running at 5:30 pm!

What is a favorite summer supper at your house? Mine almost always includes something on the grill and some sort of fresh fruit on the side or for dessert-- watermelon, cantaloupe, peaches, blackberries, blueberries-- yum!
Pin It!

Love BLT's.

We also like grilled chicken breasts - I marinate them in anything from Dales Seasoning to Ceaser Salad Dressing. I serve that with vegetables or slice the chicken and serve it over a green salad with cherry tomatoes. Yummy!

Hi, I'm Liz, and new to your blog. I love reading it!!! My favorite summer meal is marinated skirt steak on the grill, tomato and cucumber salad, and corn on the cob. My kids love it too. We love to grill cause my hubby does most of the work.
