To hot to cook!

As a part of the Life Made Delicious team, I get to cook up yummy different foods and write about them.  With how hot its been out for the last few weeks nobody seems to want to crank up the stove and start cooking.  I know we ordered pizza tonight because I didn't take anything out for dinner and it was far to hot.  Hot out of the oven dinners are not the only option out there though.  There are so many good recipes on Life Made Delicious for a nice refreshing cool dinner.

How do you feel about a Thai noodle salad with shrimp?  I can't handle much spice but you can alter how much spice is in this salad.  The kids and I love prawns, we could eat them everyday.  Lucky for us my girlfriend and her husband catch a lot of prawns and keep us filled up with prawns.

Thai Noodles With Shrimp and Vegetables

How about broccoli salad with steak or hot dogs on the grill, I am a huge broccoli salad fan.  Lots of floret's, stems to because they are so tasty, grapes, bacon, not the fake stuff, and some toasted almonds.  Some coleslaw dressing and you are done.  So good, Brandon and I love it and eat if for breakfast lunch and dinner!

Strawberry-Blueberry-Orange Salad

Another great easy salad is fruit salad.  There are so many different fruit salad recipes on Life Made Delicious to choose from.  We love fruit salad, great for a quick breakfast, to pack for lunches and even to go with anything for dinner.  I am off to pick some cherries with the kids tonight and am going to can some of them as a fruit salad.  Just cherries, they are the best part of the store bought fruit salad so I am going to pit them and throw them in the jars and add a light syrup.  Then all winter whenever we want to have fruit salad we can just open the jar, drain, and pour in some delicious cherries.  So much easier than the cherry jam I made last year without a pitter :)  Horrible idea!
