Summer Meals: Jerk Chicken

We love a good international meal. We like to introduce our kids to new cuisines, whether we are travelling or at home we try to include one new meal a week. We feel it is important to not only understand and experience your own culture but other cultures as well. While some may say the international language is math, we all know it is really food. After all, we all have to eat, we all want to eat something that tastes good, and every culture makes their own types of food. Food is the language of love, and it is the easiest way to experience a culture.

This summer we wanted to go to the Caribbean. That didn’t happen, but if we can’t go to the Caribbean we will bring the Caribbean to us. Jerk Chicken is one of the bets dishes from Jamaica. it is simple to make, and it is delicious. Why not bring a little of the Caribbean home this summer?

This great recipe comes from Delish. It is perfect for summer because we can marinate it the night before and leave it to marinate in the fridge while we are at work or out enjoying our summer. Then we simply come home and grill it. We love to pair it with rice but you can pair it with anything you want.

Summer Meals: Philly Cheese Brats

We love to grill. Its simple, its easy, and its less cleanup. During the summer I kid you not, 90% of my meals are cooked outdoors. I do love to just do dogs and burgers but that can get boring. I love to mix it up with fun new recipes. So thank you very much to NeighborFoodBlog for this fun and simple brat recipe. Brats are always fun, but these one mix it up with a taste of philly. inspired by the Philadelphia Cheese Steak it brings the taste of Philly to the brat. We absolutely loved them. I especially loved that I didn’t have to do a whole lot of cleanup. We were able to make it all outside on the grill (thanks to a pan on the grill I even made the cheese sauce outside). NeighborFoodBlog even suggested some incredible side dishes to accompany this delicious meal. We went simple and just had salad on the side with a little dressing, but I am attending a family barbecue this weekend and decided to try to make the Greek Pasta Salad she features on the blog as well. One of the great things about the internet is the ability to find things you didn’t know existed, or get great ideas from other people like you. This recipe is so simple, yet I never thought to do it on my own. Thank you so much to fellow foodies like NeighborFoodBlog who can help to bring us out of our comfort zone and try new and inspired things!
