summer staples {part three}

Life is grand. My first day off from school is amazing.
I already got a work out in & i am going to be pool side
as soon as i run to the library for some more reading material...

an good suggestions for books to read this summer?

So today I am bringing you the part 3 of my Summer Staples
series. You can find the first two parts here and here.
Today I am gonna tell you about my
Summer Staple cuisine!
We all know girlfran loves to eat..and summer cooking is one of my favorites!

BBQ- duh. I feel like all i do is talk about BBQs these days. I cannot help it!
Hamburgers, hotdogs, BBQ chicken. YUMO!
I love it all. I just love the way the grill makes it taste.
I cannot get enough.

shish-kabobs. These kinda go along with grillings since you most likely
are making them on the grill.  I love how you can make them
your own & basically put whatever you want on them.
I find pre-made marinades and put my meat
in them the night before then skewer on
my ingredients right before they go on the grill.

My fave skewer ingredients are---
pineapple, chicken, steak, onion, pear, asparagus, & zucchini

sangria. UH YEAH. This is SOOOO needed.
I love buying sangria or making it myself..
either way momma is happy.
put a cute straw or an umbrella in my glass?
even better.

Salads. Now during the summer time I don't always want a heavy
meal. Especially if i have to be in a swimsuit at any point.
So salads are a great way for lighter meal that will also fill me up.
I love trying new stuff in my salads. I love romaine lettuce
and spinach leaves as the base of most of my salads.
 Lately I have been including
sunflower seeds, cranberries, chickpeas, boiled egg & crab meat in my salads.

watermelon. mmmmm :) I love me some watermelon. I literally could probably
eat a whole one in just a few days..all to myself.
Watermelon just reminds me of summer time & I always seem to crave
it when it gets hotter.

There ya have it. My summer food staples.
What do you love to eat during the summer months??
