It’s getting hot, y’all. And it’s not even HOT hot yet.
We can still step outside with a smile and enjoy a deep breath of sunshine. In about a month, we’ll be stank-faced wading through hot-mud-air, aka “humidity,” aka nature’s pit sweat.
Ahh, lovely southern summers!
But the rising temps are making an impact on our appetites. Especially for my husband who spends a good portion of his work day outside. When he comes home from a long (LONG) day, the last thing he wants is a bubbly, creamy, rich chicken pot pie. (I’ll eat the whole thing by myself in the A/C, kthanks. #nowaste #potpieorbust) But we also want more than dressed lettuce…
Off to Pinterest we go for HotHotHeat compatible meals that are not pasta salad!
Slightly sweet, spicy, and fresh! I would probably use spinach and go crazy with the lime juice!
One giant serving bowl in the middle of the table = Less dishes to wash. Win!
This one elicited a little bit of heavy breathing on my part. Yessss.
Vinegar based sauce + pulled pork = LIFE. Paired with a crisp coleslaw and soft bun. And in the Crock Pot?! WHAT?!?!
Top it with some sour cream, and IT’S ON.
What are your favorite meals for summer?
If you came here looking for legitimate pasta salad recipes, I apologize.
