I live in Nevada. It's hot here and it's not even summer yet!
Our dinner diet has not been that nutritious unless you count milkshakes and watermelon as meals. So it's time to use some summer cooking equipment:
-George Foreman Grill
I found one free on Craigslist last year and I love this thing. I make mainly hamburgers and chicken in this, but it's pretty versatile.
Family favorites are whole chickens, meatballs, or roasts.
Anything goes! I do tiny baking batches or reheating in here.
Not an instrument, but in the summer I like to serve pitas, salads, and lots of fruit.
