Monday meal ideas: Summer Food

It’s alarming to note that tomorrow is SUMMER. Probably not so much because of the weather given that we have already had some seriously hot stuff already, but more so for the date because that means that whether we like it or not, it’s December. School will be finishing, Christmas is fast approaching and summer holidays are on their way.

To me that means BBQ’s, swims, catching up with friends and family and a general chill out for a little while. That also means lots of entertaining and for ME, that has got to be easy. Lots of salads, food for the BBQ and easy prep. These recipes do all that!

I hope you all have a good week. With that end of school deadline fast approaching I am going to try to get as much Christmas shopping done as I can. I’m to Sydney on Tuesday night with Rob then home for the rest of the week with lots of work and in between to do. December! Dig deep friends x
