Summer's Change in the Kitchen

So it is that time of year when the weather is warming up and it is time to put away the pots and the pans used to cook those big hearty winter meals. We eat light in the heat because frankly it is too hot to cook large meals and no one feels like eating them. When the heat of summer gets here all we want is light and refreshing. So, this year instead of spending time searching through my recipes I have decided to do something different. I am putting together a summer recipe folder. I will do the same at the end of summer with my winter recipes but for right now I will concentrate on summer recipes. Since today is going to be a miserable rainy day....yes I said rain...again, then I think it will be a good day to put this notebook together. Oh, I am so looking forward to the change of pace as I have gotten so tired of cooking big meals and trying to be creative. I am sure my family is a little tired because to tell the truth creative went out the window a while ago and we have been doing the same oh same oh for quite some time. I love summer when it is simply chop cut and throw together and the flavors are amazing. My goal today was to finish cleaning the goat barn out but since it is pouring and they can't/won't go out (goats melt you know) then that will have to wait. Now I have a good project to work on that will make meal planning simple easy and ever so delicious. I will try to post some of these wonderfully light and easy meal ideas through the coming weeks so that everyone can enjoy them. So are you changing things up in the kitchen for summer? Blessings, Kat

I know what you mean about how cooking changes in the summer. We live off-grid and with no a/c it's just about time to move the cooking outdoors as we do each summer. What a good idea for a summer recipe folder. Thanks.
