Meal planning for the summer.

During the summer I try not to use the oven as much so the house doesn't get as hot, I also don't cook as much soups, we do more grilling and salads. I'm trying to find more recipes that are summer friendly. Do your meal plans change for the summer time?

 lots of salads too. We mix it up with different ingredients but kids seem to love crab meat salads and madarian orange salads.

Thats another thing - we also eat tons of fruits and vegs... a lot of APPLES & PEARS because we have apple and pear trees in our yard.

I actually don't use an oven at all right now, as mine broke about a year ago and the landlord wouldn't buy a new one.  So, we just have done without because we knew we were moving and we weren't going to buy one for this shack. lol.  I'm not sure what I will do once we move next week! lol.  I hope I remember how to use one. lol.

We do a lot of grilling and crockpot meals. We are usually going going going in the summer so throwing something in the crockpot in the morning is amazing.

YES.. I don't grill but I do have my husband grill MORE in the summer time as long as it isn't raining.. he hates dealing with the grill temps when it's raining and we don't have ANY cover..

I also will crock pot more (not soups or stews)..

My menu plans never change, mostly because our weather doesn't get very hot in the summertime...
