Summertime meals should be easy and relaxing. Warm evenings call for light and refreshing dinners that you can eat on your patio while you enjoy the late sun. Invite some friends over to share in your favorite summer meal. After all, no one wants to turn on the stove in the summer! So, that makes summer the perfect time for flavorful marinades and grilling on the barbecue. Take advantage of summer’s bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables for your sides and desserts. You can probably also find some unique choices at a local farmers market. And don’t forget a summer inspired cocktail while you unwind and appreciate the summer meal in front of you.
