It is 92 degrees right now in Philly. You already know….I AM LOVING IT!
On my way home today, I swung by the supermarket since I decided to make one of my favorite warm weather meals. I don’t know about you but I hate eating heavy foods when it’s hot. I also hate turning on the oven. No ma’am. Give me an easy light meal and just about anything off the grill.
With Mr. 1969 and the kids in the house, sticking to lighter foods can be difficult. It is VERY hard not to have goodies around and even harder to break them from eating potatoes, rice or pasta with every meal. Especially Mr. 1969. His family is from Mississippi and he grew up in Pennsyltucky Harrisburg where he never met a potato roll he didn’t like. With gravy.
What is my favorite dinner when it’s hot?
I HEART this simple salad. Slices of mozzarella. Slices of tomato. Fresh leaves of basil. Salt and Pepper and a nice drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Easy to prepare and absolutely delicious.
Corn off the grill? Be.Still.My.HEART
And that’s it. Easy dinner. Low calories and totally tasty and satisfying.
I heart Edy’s frozen fruit bars. The boys love them and most of the bars are only 60 calories. A great alternative to ice cream.
And as an adult “put the kids to bed treat” serve them in a glass tumbler but pour a little something over it. The Lime bars with a tequilla shot? YUM. The Coconut bars with a shot of rum? DELISH. The Tangerine bars with a shot of Vodka? YEAH….a nice end to a busy day.
Enjoy the warm weather. What’s for dinner tonight?
