Summer is a time for lighter, healthier, and of course beautiful meals. It’s also a time, where if your anything like my family,  you’ve spent your entire day outside! Do I really want to be stuck in my kitchen on a gorgeous day??? Um no. But do I want to eat nothing but grilled hot dogs because I didn’t plan anything for dinner?? Um no. Well maybe for a couple days hot dogs work. But let’s be honest. They get boring by the third day. So what’s easier than hot dogs you ask????
