I have a great summer recipe - go to the store and purchase a nice big watermelon. Carry it home or get someone else to do it for you if possible. Cut it into bite-sized pieces, removing the rind, and place in a covered bowl in the fridge.... Eat as desired throughout the day and night... Ok, I just endulged in a bowl of watermelon and it was delicious :)

There are lots of things you can make in the summer- I like to grill out alot- How about shish ka bobs? they are fun to make and tasty! Beef or chicken or both- I put cheery tomatoes, pineapple, fresh mushrooms and zuchinni- YUM! throw them on the grill- I also marinate them with Italian dressing. I also do alot of boneless chicken on the grill- we always cook extra- so the first night we eat it regular- then we make chicken salads (tossed salad), quesidillas, shish ka bobs-- lots of things you can make- Quick and tasty!

If you are cooking on the grill you can cut up some potatoes into bite sized pieces and put individual servings in tinfoil packets along with some onion, butter and seasonings. Put these on the grill and cook them while you are cooking your meats. They are done as soon as the potatoes are tender, and they are really delicious.

A really delicious and healthy use of fresh summer veggies is to make roasted veggies. I take potatoes, summer squash, onions, leeks, parsnips, carrots, bell peppers, tomatoes, and any other fresh veggies that I might have on hand, chop them up into bite - size pieces and then mix with Italian dressing and then roast them either on the grill or in the oven until tender. They are delicious and healthy.
