50 Easy Summer Weeknight Dinner Recipes So You Can Just Chillllllllllllll


Summer gives you permission to stop trying so hard. Resign yourself to drinking all day outside. Read for pleasure. And absolutely do not stress about preparing an elaborate dinner. These 50 relaxed dinner recipes, which require minimal effort and time, want very little from you—except maybe a sip of your ice-cold beer.

Another instance, way too many for me to blog, that I have to share!

And there’s SO MUCH MORE at their webpage! Just click on link.

Here’s a few samples  ➩ ➻ ➼

Charred and Raw Corn with Chile and Cheese
All the flavors of a Mexican grilled corn on the cob, now in a convenient, tossed-together form.

Mint and Cumin-Spiced Lamb Chops
With lamb rib chops, we insist you leave the fat on the bone.

Tomato and Cabbage Tabbouleh
A proper tabbouleh will be mainly vegetables and herbs, with just a smattering of bulgur threaded through.

Soy and Sesame Short Ribs
Takashi Inoue, of Takashi in New York City, loves to use this marinade on any cut of beef (hanger is another favorite), chicken wings, or pork ribs.

Moroccan Chicken Brochettes
Dark-meat chicken is the best for grilling: Unlike lean breasts, thighs have plenty of fat, so they won’t dry out.

Perfectly Steamed Lobster
Buy perky, energetic lobsters; they should be active and extend their claws upwards when lifted.

Grilled Flatiron Steak with Toasted Spice Vinaigrette

Let the steaks rest on top of the tomatoes. Their juices will commingle and make the dressing that much better

Spiced Lamb Burger
As the lamb cooks inside the pita, the fat will render into the bread, creating a crunchy, compact, vibrantly flavored meat pie that’s unlike any burger you’ve ever had.

Chilled Tomato and Stone Fruit Soup
This riff on gazpacho gets unexpected sweetness—and great color—from the addition of cherries and a peach.

Vietnamese Pork Chops
Go light on the salt when seasoning these chops; the marinade is fairly salt, especially after it reduces

Steak Tacos with Cilantro-Radish Salsa
Radishes make a crunchy salsa for these—or any other taco you’re serving this summer.

Grilled Bread with Ricotta and Tomatoes
Use very ripe—even overripe—tomatoes; they’ll give up even more juice.

Salt-and-Pepper Steak
What’s inexpensive, versatile, and crazy tasty? Skirt steak. It also cooks in a flash, which make it tailor-made for grilling.

Jerk Spice–Rubbed Chicken Legs
We took the traditional Jamaican jerk spice and…simplified it. Before you call the authenticity police, give it a try on roast chicken legs.

Grilled Greens and Cheese Quesadillas
Not to break your heart or anything, but good luck finding Toma, a cow’s-milk cheese. We didn’t just go rogue: Chef Cámara okayed the cheddar substitute.

Sambal Chicken Skewers
Kebabs get a bad rap. (Decades of alternating zucchini coins and cherry tomatoes can do that.) But this Asian take, with a spicy, sticky glaze, makes for a very convincing comeback.

Grilled Kielbasa Tacos
Make sure to cut the onions and peppers into big pieces so that they don’t fall through the grill grates.

Grilled Citrus Chicken
Ketchup and mustard have nothing on summer’s true soulmates: grilled chicken and all the bright citrus you can find


Including another awesome post on roasted veggies that are to die for. I won’t miss meat with those! Seriously. It’s on a link when you scroll down the page. I’ve got stuff to do or I’d post many of those also; they look simply delicious.!
