Savoury Summer Suppers

Mushroom Cheeseburger and a yummy salad

We’ve been on a bit of a cooking rampage at our house. This past week, I made a whole slew of recipes. We have been eating like kings! It’s always more fun to make recipes than to take the easy way out and throw in a pizza or something. You always feel better after and definitely more satisfied.

Last week, I’ve made:

–          Grilled Corn, Asparagus and Chicken Summer Salad

–          Sweet and Tangy Sausage Kabobs

–          Chicken, Bacon Avocado Sandwich with Blue Cheese Dressing

–          Mushroom Cheeseburgers

My favourite part about BBQ season is that it involved both of us in the meal preparation process. We’re both a bit controlling when we’re cooking, so unless we delegate specific tasks, we’ve learned to stay out of each other’s way in the kitchen. All of the recipes above are BBQ recipes, which means I do the interior prep and My Other Half mans the grill.

The Chicken, Bacon Avocado Sandwich with Blue Cheese Dressing didn’t live up to my expectations, but I think that’s because we overdid the blue cheese. With about ¼ of the dressing, the other flavours – like the bacon and avocado – would really pop. Lesson learned!

The Sweet and Tangy Sausage Kabobs were so easy and so healthy. We had them without any other side dish and it was such a nice, light supper! We got to thinking that kabobs of any kind are just a great summer meal idea.

The Mushroom Cheeseburgers were delicious, but that aren’t nearly as good as the Jalapeno Cheese-Stuffed Hamburgers we made a couple weeks ago. Those are the most delicious things I’ve ever put in my mouth.

What a great week of cooking! Stay tuned for my post on the Grilled Corn, Asparagus and Chicken Summer Salad!
