Summer Refrigerator Food | Pasta Salad, Lemon Chicken, Cucumber Salad

At some point over the last few weeks, Spring completely and abruptly merged into Summer.  It is hot here.  Hot!  There is nothing I detest more than super hot days than cooking in a hot kitchen on super hot days.

For this week, I'm planning to stock our refrigerator with cool, flavorful and simple things that we can easily turn into lunch or dinner.  Its our favorite way to eat during the summer.  I usually marinade something for the grill like chicken, steak or shrimp, then we make up the rest of the meal with refrigerator favorites.

Here are some of the recipes I'll be whipping up this week to keep in the fridge : 

Emma LOVES chicken salad, so I usually make a big at the beginning of the week for our lunches.  She takes it in a small kitchen container to eat with ritz crackers and I usually have mine with a half of an avocado or as a sandwich.  

Lemon & Squash Orzo Salad >

Roasted Lemon & Thyme Chicken

This works hot out of the oven as a comforting supper, or kept in the fridge for slicing and putting on top of or with anything.

Green Pasta Salad

Super flavorful, great with sliced grilled steak or shrimp.

OMG, this is so good.  Addicting!  And pretty healthy for you.

Cool, crunchy, fresh.  This is a family favorite and so good with anything from the grill.

I'll wait until the tomatoes are really good to make this, but OH MY, I'm ready for it.
