Heat Wavy Easy Meal

I have a super easy supper idea for those who are struggling with this ugly heat wave?

This idea is a great idea for an easy meal to prepare without heating up the house to do so.

Grab a meat of your choice, some shrimp and your grill. Then barbecue away. It does not take long for this to cook and you kept your house cooler as well. I call that a double win.

Well, actually a triple win because I was put on grill restriction a long time ago, so I personally did not even have to go outside to cook it either.

Now our house is still cool, supper is done, and the kitchen was an easy clean up.

Enjoy your easy grilled idea if you chose to make it too.

Ribs and Veggies

Here is another simple, yet healthy meal to consider this summer.

Grab a package of ribs, grill them and add simple vegetables such as tomato and cucumber and blueberries.

You will walk away satisfied, while skipping the full feeling.

Summer Burger

Do you need a fresh supper idea?

Try this one. Grilled angus burger topped with cheese. Place it on a bed of lettuce and add a fresh tomato to the side.

Do not be afraid to add a few baked fries seasoned with garlic salt, onion powder, and basil.

Lastly, add a few slices of fresh watermelon.

It is a filling meal, but not as bad as a traditional hamburger and French fries.

Enjoy this lighter twist to a traditional summer meal.

Caprese Chicken, Fresh Green Beans, and Fresh Bruschetta

Are you looking for a healthy and delicious supper option?

Check out this meal.

Just for laughs, my Kiddo gave me an ”A” for presentation tonight.

What you do not know is I really do not like cooking main meals. They are burdensome to me and very boring. I love baking and place more emphasis on presentation with that, but I do not care what my main meals look like. I am just happy to have it all made for another night.

I used two different recipes tonight and will include their links to their recipes then click on the links for the full recipe.

Caprese Chicken

Bruschetta

I used a wheat French baguette for my bread to put the delicious bruschetta on. A side note, I added a little shredded Italian cheese to mine as my family loves this added feature to my bruschetta.

Fresh Green Beans

I also served my meal with fresh steamed green beans and sprinkled with a little garlic salt and dried parsley.

Enjoy your supper!

Are you hungry and looking for a simple healthy option?

Check out my Chicken and Cauliflower Meal

Ingredients

1 package of chicken fillets, cubed

1 head of cauliflower, riced

Salt to taste

Parsley to taste

Directions

In a sauté pan on medium heat, cut up chicken fillet into cubes and cook. When chicken is half way cooked add riced cauliflower flower to chicken and stir often to keep from over cooking or making cauliflower mushy.

(If you use a head of cauliflower, you can rice it by placing in a food processor a little at a time on the pulse setting).

Serve with a side of baby carrots and sprinkle parsley on top.

Enjoy!
