I like to take things easy in the summer. In Arizona, it’s already in the 90’s and the fact that it’s just warming up is exhausting! That’s why I love anything that makes my life easier. This All American Quick Dinner is just what I need to cool off on a summer day.
I created a cute and easy table setting that’s perfect for summer and we ate an easy salad, grilled Jack’s Pepperoni Pizza and Nestle Drumstick Crunch Dipped Cones. Of course, I had to decorate with FREE Printables…just for fun 🙂
My electric bill gets to be over $300 in the summer…YIKES! It’s so hot and that’s keeping my house at 77 degrees. So, turning the oven on is just not an option. If I do turn it on, the house stays hot all day. What I like about Jack’s pizza is that you can cook it right on the grill. I don’t need to clean any pans and my house stays cool…WIN/WIN! You can see how to grill a pizza HERE. Mine took less time than the video says, so just check on your pizza from time to time. I also love that it’s made with 100% Real Wisconsin Cheese and the crust doesn’t have any preservatives!
For the table setting, I used white plates, wicker place mats, and decorated with mason jar glasses, straw flags and treat bags. You can download these cute printables HERE!
And of course, it’s not summer or American without ice cream. It’s just not. I LOVE Nestle Drumsticks…like love them. The caramel centers are my very favorite, so my husband and kids are out of luck there…I hoarded all those. The others are delicious too, so don’t feel too sorry for them.
After dinner, we went outside on the trampoline and devoured our ice cream. Around 6 PM it starts to cool down a little and it’s just perfect outside. We hang out there almost every night until the sun goes down…jumping, playing basketball or running in the sprinklers. There’s nowhere I’d rather be than with these crazy guys!
