Cooking Rut

Coming out of winter and into the summertime menu, I feel like in a cooking rut here. Winter just seems so much easier with stews, soups and casseroles. Summer is a different situation altogether. Everyone is a bit hungrier because we are more active and yet, nothing sounds good.

So, I'm calling out for help. Please share you favorite summer main dish! You can leave it in a comment, give me a link or email me. I'll try it out and feature it on this blog. And my family will be forever grateful that they are not eating the same ole thing.

Pasta salads are awlays a favorite, salads, grilled kabobs, sandwiches and fruit (like chicken salad, tuna salad, etc.)

We are big fans of giant salads - chicken or steak grilled and cut in strips (stretches it) and lots of toppings (black beans, cheese, tomatoes, avacado etc. or strawberries, nuts, etc. - you get the idea). :) We also like pasta dishes or stir-fry with or without meat - I use whatever fresh vegetables I have and make simple sauces. I use recipes less in the summer. :)

What about the idea of a baked potato bar. We bake potatoes and put all the "fixings" out and everyone chooses their own toppings. We like bacon bits, sour cream, salsa, cheese, chili, and onions.
