Tips for Planning Meals that Won’t Heat Up the Kitchen

Use a Slow Cooker or Crockpot

There is no easier way to make a complete meal that to put it in the slow cooker or crockpot. And this type of meal won’t heat up your kitchen. These Jelly Meatballs are perfect with a cold salad or pasta salad.Or try this Crock Pot roast with veggies -- it looks yummy!

Cook Outside on the Grill

Grilling outside is a wonderful option no matter where you live! Making this Campfire Sausage, and Potato dinner is perfect for a busy week. And it will keep your kitchen nice and cool. I also love anything on a stick and these Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs are perfect for a weeknight dinner.

Plan Meals ahead on Sunday

If there is anything that will cut down time and heat in the kitchen, it’s planning your meals ahead of time. I love cooking several meals on Sunday and eating them throughout the week. It makes dinner so much easier and less stressful.

Prepare Non-Cooking Meals

Sometimes the best meal is something you can just assemble rather than cook. Some ideas include Chicken Wraps, Chicken Salad, Tuna Salad, Ham & Cheese Pinwheels or a regular salad. I love getting a cooked Rotisserie chicken from the market and using that all week.

Order In

When all else fails, you can always order in to avoid heating up your kitchen. It may not be the most economical but we all can agree that ordering food for delivery can definitely make dinner less stressful!
