I would do sandwiches, wraps, salads, and use my slow cooker a bit.
Pasta salads, wraps, subs, fruit salads
Most any meats and veggies can be done outside on the grill (if it's small sized items, just make a foil packet and stick on the grill)
Slow cooker: tacos, meatloaf, enchiladas, meatballs, etc.
One of our family favs is cold veggie pizza. (does require using the oven, but at a low temp and only about 10-15 min. for the crust) Roll out a can of crescent rolls unseparated, bake at 325, pressing flat with a spatula every 3-4 min until brown. Take it out let it cool, make a "sauce" from sour cream (or plain greek yogurt) and a packet of hidden valley ranch dry mix (can also use bottled ranch or cream cheese as an alternative sauce) let the kids top it w/ their fav chopped/shredded raw veggies and cheese......it's sooo good! You cold sub pitas or crackers for the crescent rolls and leave out the oven all together.
You got a slow cooker?
we grill outside alot when its hot..
I was thinking crock pot stuff...
I'm making French Dip Sandwiches today. Pulled pork, Sloppy Joes, Sloppy Cheeseburgers.
Quoting jen.mom.of.four:Unfortunately our grill is broke and don't have extra money right now to buy a new one :-(
are you in an area that allows fire pits? If so you can cook certain foods over the open flame, or wrap them in foil to put right into the pit.
i agree with what was mentioned already
