Summer is made for entertaining. The weather is good. People are using up their vacation time and the kids are running around like crazy. But what are the best ways to feed a hungry crowd? Bring it all outdoors.

Last week went on a camping trip with my family and our in laws. Talk about getting outdoors! We great fun planning the menu. Here's what we made:

Skillet omelettes

Grilled sandwiches

Steak, pepper and potato skewers

Fruit skewers for dessert (pinapple and peach)

Everyone had a blast....and full tummies too!

Moms, what kind of meals do you serve outdoors during the summer months?

We grill a lot during the warm months. Chicken, kabobs, steak and chops mostly! We sit on our back patio by the pool and enjoy dinner and sunset!

 We cook just about anything on the grill.   Pork loins, whole chicken, fish, steaks.   I love cooking as much as possible outside.   Less clean up in the kitchen.

We like to make cold salads, anything that can be done on the grill or over a fire, fruit, fresh veggies. This is also when we pull out recipes or dishes that may be on the messy or very messy side. And the odd food fight has been known to erupt wink mini
