Summertime Supper

When summertime finally creeps its way into my world. I try to think of easy and fun things to cook. When the temperatures rise it is very hard to think of cooking a huge meal that not only heats up the house but weighs on your stomach.

I have found that this simple meal is refreshing and light. When the kids head to Tennessee to stay with my parents. I get to take a vacation from the heavy cooking and my husband and I can eat a very light meal. The kids would never touch tomatoes and it works perfect for us. Settle down with this light meal and a glass of wine. Perfect for any summertime evening dreaming of the return of fall and winter!
