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.

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.
