I’m all about lazy days of summer. There are those days when I just don’t want to step into the kitchen and cook. The idea of prepping, cooking and cleaning becomes overwhelming. It’s just easier to grab take-out. And sometimes I do. Other times, I do it like this—15 minute prep, max—then it all goes on the grill.
Easy cooking and even easier clean-up, especially if you serve this on paper plates.
Fast clean-up is a must when you have boys tugging at you for a night time swim—a regular occurrence during these longer days. Never mind that they may have had baseball and I coached it, then I had to work and the only break between coaching and work was an epic game of pool time dodge ball. I know it’s sounds like I’m complaining, but I’m grateful for these times. As the saying goes, “The days are long, but the years are short”.
I’m embracing every moment and rarely say no, despite how tired I may be. Because in the end, I love the good times. So fast and easy recipes like this are a must. If you have a favorite fast and easy recipe, please share it in the comment section. I know I can’t be the only one who would rather be outside playing than in the kitchen cooking on these long summer nights.
