Summer Eating Series

It is HOT here in Arizona and it is only April 2nd.  It is crazy.  As the heat is on, it makes me begin to think about transitioning to "summer eating".  I do not want to be slaving over a hot stove, or firing up the oven when the temp outside is over 100° and the AC is working overtime just to keep up.

Over the next several weeks, I will be sharing my summer eating series.  This series will include a variety of recipes that are fun, delicious, quick and refreshing.

So what is summer eating?  When the heat kicks in, we tend to eat lighter and take advantage of the great fresh, seasonal produce.  These meals usually involve more made-in-advance ingredients that can be frozen and pulled out on a moments notice.  We tend to eat more cold meals like sandwiches and salads; meals made on the grill like meat, veggies and even pizza; meals that are made ahead and frozen like shredded pork, barbacoa and red sauce - essentially any meal that does not involve turning on the oven or slaving over a hot stove is a summer meal.

I will be sharing a few of our favorite recipes, go-to meals and freezer recipes that help our family navigate the crazy heat and hectic schedules of our Arizona summer.

Come back tomorrow for the first entry in this series...homemade pizza {on the grill} and homemade frozen pizza dough.
