Meal Plan Monday- Oven Free!!

"Oven Free Meals"
Last week we substituted 2 meals. We ended up having lettuce salads one night with hard boiled eggs, ham, fresh mushrooms, cheese, and croutons. They were delicious! Another favorite in the summer is what I call "cold soup" it's broken up bread with strawberries (sweetened) and milk on it! Quick, easy, and summer delicious!
Not a real exciting plan this week
but here it is (almost certain to change!!)
Monday-- Tacos
Tuesday -- "Caribbean Jerk" Marinated Chicken, crock pot potatoes, veggies
Wednesday -- BLT's and apple slices
Thursday -- Spaghetti (didn't have last week)
Friday -- Grilled smoked sausage, pasta salad, frozen peaches
Saturday -- Homemade Pizza
Sunday -- Day at the Warren Dunes Beach!!
As you can see the only meal that requires the oven this week is the pizza. We have air conditioning but the oven still heats the house up and makes the air work that much harder. This week is supposed to be high 80's around here.... finally going to feel like summer!!
So What's your favorite "oven free" easy summer meal??
I always need ideas!
Look for my new series starting tomorrow.

One thing that I try to do each day when I am thinking about dinner, is cook all that I can in the morning, that way, I get most done before the heat of the day. I also have less dishes and it feels like more time!

I love to use my crockpot more in the summer. Also, marinating chicken in Italian dressing, grilling it, and serving it on a salad is scrumptious!

Looks like a great week!

I am doing an oven free week of cooking this week too by using the grill, crockpot, and stovetop. :) I find that a lot of my oven recipes are very adaptable to my stovetop or to the crockpot for during the summertime months.
