Like many of you, this summer has been one of constantly battling the heat. Especially when it comes to cooking dinner. We have an open layout for our main living area, which means that if we heat up the kitchen, we heat up everything. So I've been limiting how much I turn on the stove for cooking dinner. But, while we can grill the meat, the sides were posing a problem.
Thankfully, we finally realized that we could use an old pot that we had and the side burner on our grill. I'm not sure why it took us so long to figure this out, but I'm thankful that we finally did.
Last night's dinner was cooked completely outside. We had barbecue pork chops, corn on the cob and macaroni and cheese. The mac and cheese was cooked using the side burner and the corn was wrapped in foil and cooked for 10 minutes on the main part of the grill. I also had a salad.
What are some ways you cook differently in the summer to beat the heat?
