Let me just say…. I cannot fire the grill up enough this time of year.
It is hot, hot, hot here in Texas. Cooking in the kitchen, especially using the oven, can be felt pretty much instantly this time of year.
You know how I make sure I get dinner on the table each night for my family? It’s all about being prepared. I spend thirty minutes to an hour mapping everything out for the week, then I place my grocery order online, then it is just a matter of defrosting and I am steps ahead for dinner!
This is what large family meal planning looks like at my house. We are using the grill and the slow cooker this week.
Large Family Meal Planning
Cheesy Stuffed Hamburger Patties– these are going to be amazing. Tossing them on the grill and serving with chips and fresh fruit. The patties are already assembled in the freezer- they are from our June freezer meal menu. I just have to defrost and grill.
Turkey Swiss Sliders– I am going to do these on the grill. I will either cook them in foil packs of 2-4 sliders each OR put them in a baking dish and cover in foil and toss the while pan on the grill. Served with chips and fruit.
BBQ Chicken and Pineapple Kabobs– these are also in the freezer and ready to go- skewers assembled and all. These are also from our June freezer meal plan. Serve with Instant Pot brown rice and a side salad.
Grilled Catalina Chicken Breasts– I still have some Zaycon chicken breasts in the freezer and I have a decent side container of Catalina dressing left in the fridge. I am going to serve this with mac and cheese and a side salad for the kids. For my husband and I we will serve this over a large salad. Love doing this with grilled chicken!
Grilled Salsa Chicken– This is super easy! I am going to marinate chicken breasts in my favorite salsa. I will grill these and then the last few minutes of grilling I will add cheese slices to the breasts, which will melt. SUPER YUMMY! (This can easily be done in the oven if you prefer.) I will serve this with tortillas and black beans.
