The time of year has come that I’m avoiding the oven. In fact, our entire menu this week is ovenless, except for the Dark Chocolate Almond Granola we baked a couple weeks ago and have on hand for a cool breakfast.
One of my very favorite no-oven ideas is to Bake Potatoes in the Crock Pot. There are all kinds of fun toppings for baked potatoes. Since they bake easily in the crock pot, we’ll likely be having different baked potato varieties all summer long.
Here’s what we’ll be eating this week. I love fun summer foods!
Tuesday, June 3
Dark chocolate almond granola, blueberries
Tuna salad on crackers or lettuce and tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers, cool pineapple cream dessert
Grilled burgers, pickles, watermelon, green beans
Thursday, June 5
Chocolate whipped cream on strawberries
Grilled hotdogs, baked beans (on the stovetop), sweet peppers, cucumbers and carrots
Italian roast wraps, lettuce and tomato, strawberry creamsicles (recipe coming this week)
Friday, June 6
Creamy orange cooler, toast
Lamburger patties, lettuce and tomato, cheesy cauliflower cakes, sweet peppers
Grilled barbeque chicken, tossed salad, sweet corn, steamed broccoli and carrots
Have you been doing much grilling so far this summer?
