Summer Cooking...

1.  Flank Steak with Radish Salsa
















 
served with Balsamic Grilled Vegetables



















2.  Sizzling Greek Salad with Grilled Chicken


















3.  Chipotle Salmon Burgers

















served with Spinach Apple Salad with Maple Cider Vinaigrette


















4.  Steak and Vegetable Kabobs


















5.  Kentucky Blue Grass Salad with Grilled Chicken


















6.  Fajita Turkey Burger
















served with Vegetable Kabobs





















Southern Living never lets me down!  They gave me enough meal ideas to last all summer.  These are the ones I will make this week...we love to grill in the summer when the vegetables are freshest!  


The only problem with them is going to be getting our boys to eat them without gagging down the vegetables!  Our daughter will eat anything that we put on her plate.  Oh well, we will  just continue to put them on their plates hoping that they will eventually like them.  I mean, a girl can only handle so many pizza nights, taco nights, and spaghetti nights!!

  2. Those all look delicious!!! I love summer food. And I know what you mean. My boys aren't always thrilled with our meal choices. One is much more adventurous than the other. Oh well, I keep trying too :)

  3. Yummy recipes! I have made a spinach and apple salad just like that! Talking about vegetables and boys, I just posted a picture of my son eating spinach on my other blog yesterday-you should see his face-he was not happy!

    Best wishes and happy weekend,
    Natasha.

  5. I just finished dinner, but suddenly I am hungry again. We love grilled veggies, glad to see that someone else does, ( if it makes you feel better our kids will eat them, but they do NOT love them). Have a great weekend

  7. If you wait a few weeks to make any of these meals, I'll help you get all the veggies eaten. I'm willing to sacrifice for your boys.

  20. I can honestly say I have never heard of a salmon burger ... but hey - it truly does look worthy of a try!! Might just give that a go this week :)

  21. your recipes look amazing.. i must confess... when i was growing up my mother made salmon burgers... i would always make sure i had eaten before, faked a tummy ache, or begged to eat at a friends house... but yours look much more flavorful and i might be willing to give it a try!
    happy to have found your blog... i love your profile... you are truly blessed to have such a wonderful family... xx pam
