Seasonal Summer Dinner Menu

Anyone else despise using the oven on hot days?  The crockpot is our friend on those are the other appliances that we can use without heating up the whole house. I've come across blogs that talk about outdoor summer kitchens. I think that would be a really neat idea if you had the setup/space.

For my summer menu I assigned each day of the week a certain type of food and rotate through the list for an entire month. There are over 30 days worth of meals listed here. Click on the item for the link to the recipe we most often use. 

Breakfast for dinner: Crepes, Waffles, Breakfast Pizza
Pasta: Tuna Noodle, Japanese Soba Noodles, Crockpot or Skillet Lasagna 
Sandwiches: BLT's, Crockpot BBQ Pulled Pork or Beef, Wraps, Grilled Veggie sammies, Ham&Cheese, Meatball Grill night: Hamburgers, Hotdogs/Brats, Chicken, Steak, Kabobs

Soup: Red Beans&Rice, Split Pea, Chunky Veggie, Crockpot Baked Potatoes
Appetizer Night: Antipasto platter, Dips; Cheesy Bean Dip, Guacamole, Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Salads; Taco Salad, Chicken Salad(Asian), Layered Greek Salad
