Summer is my favorite time to eat. That may sound weird, but I LOVE the food this time of year. Anything on the grill just tastes a thousand times better, I'm obsessed with fresh fruit, could live off of cold pasta salads, and don't even get me started on ice cream. My favorite I'm telling you.
On Sunday night, we had a dinner that encompassed pretty much all of the above and it was so good. The only thing that was missing was ice cream, which we usually go get on Sunday nights (the best way to end a weekend!), but Nick was busy finishing up painting our deck !! which is looking awesome. The ice cream tradition will resume again next weekend ;)
Here is a delicious, pretty easy meal that will be on repeat at our house this summer. Enjoy!
I've been wanting to make this for a while and I'm so glad I finally did! It couldn't have been easier. The marinade is only 5 ingredients (that everyone already has in their pantries) and you're basically dumping guacamole on top of your grilled chicken - yummmmay.
Since the dish had so much flavor, we kept the sides relatively simple with couscous (my favorite brand, cooks in 5 minutes!) and watermelon. By the way, have you ever grilled your watermelon? I just stumbled across this on Pinterest and have to try it ASAP.
I've made this cake a few times and it continues to remain a favorite. This time I had some frozen blueberries in my freezer that I wanted to use up, so I subbed them in instead of the fresh strawberries. Still delicious! The greek yogurt keeps the cake super moist and flavorful, and the lemon icing is the perfect finishing touch.
Now that our deck is finished, we'll be spending even more time outdoors and I'm so happy about it. Can't wait to make our patio space come to life via my inspiration board and of course, continue grilling all of the things. What are your favorite summer recipes?
