Featured in July
These are some of the main dish recipes I love to make in the summer for everyday fare or casual entertaining. Most are light, easy to prepare and budget-friendly. Many of the meats and some of the vegetables are grilled because I enjoy cooking outdoors as much as possible during the summer, although they all can be made indoors. Additionally, I include seasonal foods, because seafood, summer vegetables, fruits and berries are especially tasty and usually less expensive during the local harvest. I hope that you will try some of the recipes and.....enjoy!
Labor Day signals the unofficial end of summer, so why not bid it farewell with an outdoor celebration. My menu begins with Gazpacho, a refreshing way to use the last of the summer harvest, served with deviled eggs and crab puffs. The main dish is grilled Chipotle Burgers, which can be cooked indoors if the weather does not cooperate. Simple and delicious sides of saffron potato salad, marinated vegetable salad and Mexican-style beans, as well as a dessert of peaches, blueberries and pound cake complete the meal. All of the recipes, most of which can be prepared at least one day in advance, provide links to alternate choices. Preparation notes are included to help you plan for the event. Enjoy and have a great Labor Day!
