Summer is a busy time for us, made busier this year with our new little addition. It’s also very hot out, which means I’m not a fan of standing in front of the stove for a long time. For that reason, it seems like we are having way fewer dinner parties than I would like. In an effort to get-together with more people, a little more often, I’ve started really pairing down my menus to really simple dishes.
I think simple dishes with bold flavors are really what summer cooking is all about. So, I’ve decided to share with you some of my favorite summer dinner party menus.
Easy Breezy Summer Dinner Party Menu

Chicken with Spicy Apricot Sauce with rice and steamed broccoli
Simple Southwestern Style Menu
Very Garlic Guacamole & Chips

Cocktails (There are a lot of carbs here so dessert doesn’t usually happen with this one)
