Summer Meals to Beat the Heat!

Here on the west coast we are in the middle of a heat wave. Triple Digit temperatures are keeping us all inside enjoying our AC, and dreading the moment we have to heat the house by cooking a hot meal.

I scoured my meal ideas for something simple that wouldn’t require me to turn the oven on, or brave the triple digit heat outside to BBQ. I finally found this fun recipe from Lemon Tree Dwelling. BLT Chicken Salad Sandwiches to the rescue! 

We almost always have leftover Bacon on hand since my husband loves to have it for breakfast on the weekend. So in order to prepare this meal I made sure I had already cooked bacon, and a rotisserie chicken on hand so that I didn’t have to heat the oven. You can get rotisserie chicken at your local grocery store, and they are usually inexpensive. I love that they sometimes have deals to buy two for one, or buy one get one half off. Then I stock up and use them for multiple meals in the summer.

 

Lemon Tree Dwelling has the full recipe available now. Just head on over, be sure to check out the other awesome recipes available. I found several to help keep me from turning on my oven for the rest of the week!
