These summer grilling recipes are perfect for summer or anytime you can get to the grill! When we lived in Maryland, we even grilled in the snow!
Is this a crazy time or what? Living in Florida, we just got the stay at home order and it begins tonight at midnight. We have been staying in anyway, but this adds a new panic to the whole situation.
How are you holding up? Are you cooking more? I've made some pantry meals like this Lentil Stew and Italian Bean Soup, but I'm not really feeling like I can't go to the store once a week yet. How about you?
I will say our largest grocery store chain was making announcements yesterday about shopping six feet apart, and there is no way that was going to happen as crowded as it was.
What are they doing where you are? Limiting shoppers? I don't know what the answer is, but I know I can't wait until we have this under control and behind us!
These recipes are perfect for family dinners. It's great to get out of the kitchen and enjoy the warmer weather.

Tools To Help Create these Summer Grilling Recipes
If you're planning to make any of the kabobs on this list, you'll need kabob skewers. These metal skewers are really great and they come with a case.
If you prefer bamboo skewers, these are a good brand and economical. Remember, you'll need time to soak the bamboo skewers before grilling.
For smaller foods, you might want to have a grill basket on hand. We use this for veggies like potatoes, broccoli, and zucchini. If you are new to grilling, start out with this 3-piece utensil set. To make cleanup easier, pick up this grill brush and scraper.
