Hot Night Suppers
If anyone has some suggestions for suppers to be served on nights when you just don’t want to turn on the stove or oven it would be appreciated. Sometimes its just too hot to heat up the house. Have the basic salads and fruit salads anything else?
Thanks in advance – Jan
Great question Jan and I can certainly relate right now. It’s super hot and I haven’t used my oven in weeks and the stove only when absolutely needed. Here are a couple of ideas for you:
Use your crockpot whenever you can. You can cook almost anything in there. Here are some crockpot recipes for you to try and take a look at my Crockpot Cooking Made Simple guide for lots more recipes and tips.
Grill – get hubby to grill some burgers, chicken, pork chops, steak, fish etc. on the grill. Make sure you have him cook plenty so you have leftovers for a few other meals.
Crumble up leftover hamburgers in your crockpot and turn them into chili or beef and vegetable soup.
Leftover chicken, pork and steak can be served cold the next day on sandwiches and salads.
When it come to baking, I just use my breadmaker for now.
For more summer cooking tips, take a look at this report about Simple Summer Cooking and I’m sure other readers have plenty of ideas to share.
