Apron Giveaway

Happy Monday! This week, we’re giving away another of my favorite things: cute aprons.

The Foodie Groom has absolutely no use for cute aprons. And usually no opinion on whether they’re actually cute or not. And to make sure we have enough room in the kitchen drawers for things that he actually cares about, like being able to find kitchen towels, I’ve been relocating my apron collection aprons to a linen closet as they come out of the laundry.

To enter, simply leave a comment below and tell us: What’s your favorite, quick, go-to dinner in the summer?

Our current favorite? Penne & Zucchini Carbonara

Update: Vanessa, with lucky comment #62 is the winner of the apron! Instructions to claim your prize were sent to the email address that you left with your comment. Thanks!

The fine print:
– One comment per person.
– You can earn two extra entries by:
– Leaving a separate comment that you follow us on Twitter.
– Leaving a separate comment that you like us on Facebook.
– Giveaway ends at 11:59pm (Texas time!) on Friday.
– One winner will be selected by one of those cold, soulless, unfeeling random number generator thingies and announced on this post on Saturday.
– If prize isn’t claimed within 7 days, a second winner will be selected.
– Contest is open to readers world wide.

Good luck!

Lately, quinoa cakes with a poached egg has been my quick go-to dinner! Protein power!

3 Bryan Ng July 18, 2011 at 1:45 am

A light soup along with a fruit vinagrette dressed salad while out with friends on a patio!

4 Beth July 18, 2011 at 2:05 am

Usually grilled chicken or pork served with rice, black beans and a fresh veggie such as green beans. I also keep ground turkey meat in the freezer because enchilada casserole is something I can quickly throw together.

Beth

P.S. I just found your blog through browneyedbakers blog. Can’t wait to look at all your recipes. I will be making the pepperoni pizza monkey bread.

5 BeckyS July 18, 2011 at 4:11 am

Breakfast for dinner! Eggs and bacon, pancakes and sausage, clean out the refrigerator omelets. Depends on what is on hand.

6 Katrina July 18, 2011 at 4:34 am

My quick dinner of choice lately has been pasta salad. Quick, cold, and yummy!

I love roasted veggies with pasta for an easy summer dinner.

8 Michelle July 18, 2011 at 4:57 am

Quesadillas. We always have tortillas on hand, cheeses, etc. as well. I make a chunky salsa that my sister-in-law taught me to do, and we usually have some of that as well. Then we either go queso w/ salsa or add some pollo if we have some on hand already cooked & ready to go.

9 Becki's Whole Life July 18, 2011 at 4:59 am

Grilled balsamic chicken and asparagus. We also like the harvest blends mix from Trader Joe’s. I love that Apron – so cute!

10 Evi July 18, 2011 at 5:00 am

Gazpacho! It’s not only a cold soup to cool you off, but it’s always super easy. And you can use the great tomatoes which are now in season.

95 Amanda July 18, 2011 at 8:45 am

My go to summer dinner is a big salad with some grilled lean meat or cheese cut into it. Simple, filling, healthy, and doesn’t heat up the house.

We like to grill in the summer. Usually chicken and wonderful veggies.

98 carol palmeira July 18, 2011 at 8:49 am

bruschettas, love making them, they are so easy, full of flavor and comfy. And you can make from almost anything you want, tomato, zucchini, mushrooms … call some friends or family, get some great parmesan cheese, and some wine, it’s summer night love for sure .

99 Sherree July 18, 2011 at 8:51 am

In our house, our favorite during summer is grilled pizza. So quick if you use pre-made dough, and no need to heat up the kitchen!

Corn on the cob. I live in Amish country, PA, so there’s always someone selling corn at a roadside stand. Stop on the way home from work. Boil it up, and throw some butter on the table. Done.
If there’s a salad, or some leftovers in the fridge, we eat that with it. If not, we just eat corn!

185 Neesha July 18, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Honestly, since I’m just cooking for me I tend to whip together a pb&j for dinner quite often throughout the summer. It’s too blasted hot to cook anything and I always have all of the ingredients.

186 Dana July 18, 2011 at 12:47 pm

I make a quick tuna casserole. I know that might be better for winter, but it’s quick and simple and allows me more time to do fun stuff in the summer and be outside with my daughter! Happy summer everyone! I also recently discovered this blog and love it already!

I think my quick fav thing to make is a fruit salad. I always have grapes, apples, oranges, and pears in my fridge and occasionally i’ll buy a water melon. So on those days its too hot to cook i’ll chop up my melon, apples, and pluck some grapes, throw it in a bowl and stir up a quick fruit dip.

My go to recipes in the summer always revolve around fresh farmer’s market veggies. I still like to eat warm, home cooked meals, regardless of the heat outside. I would have to say I most frequently make veggie tacos, burritos, or enchiladas. There are so many combos of veggies you can use, it’s like a different dish every time!

I hate to say it, but with this heat…ham sandwiches! When it’s not quite as hot, I love making a no name dish with cubed chicken, canned tomatoes (with basil and lemon pepper added), zucchini and mushrooms. I add some crushed red pepper for some kick and serve it over vermicelli. My kids love spaghetti, but I think it’s boring, so this is an easy compromise. :o)

380 Mia July 19, 2011 at 6:29 am

I love to throw together a quick cucumber, olive oil, and feta cheese salad…super simple, fresh, delicious, and healthy! Of course, I usually follow it with a big dish of ice cream :)

I’m totally obsessed with cute aprons!! My go to meal in the summer is random salads. I just throw whatever protein I have, and then lots of fresh veggies and … my latest obsession… hot peppers. They make everything better. Oh, goat cheese helps too!

413 Anna M July 19, 2011 at 2:59 pm

I like to make Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausage in a hurry. You just cut it up, throw it in a pan, and cook. I will usually make a vegetable for a side.

426 laurie July 19, 2011 at 8:14 pm

BLTs!! just had them tonight with watermelon.

Our go to dinner in the summer would have to be burgers and or hot dogs on the grill. It is quick and simple yet super delicious. We can’t get enough of grilled food during the summer! We change it up with different toppings or seasonings so it doesn’t get boring.

436 KellyO July 20, 2011 at 4:02 am

Simple stir fried vegetables. Gotta love that amazing summer produce!

437 Jen July 20, 2011 at 5:59 am

Quesadillas. We always have tortillas, cheese, and chipotle peppers sitting around. We use leftover veggies from other meals to change up the contents.

438 MicheleB July 20, 2011 at 7:36 am

Curried chicken salad with fruit.

439 Jenn July 20, 2011 at 9:48 am

Whatever vegetables are hanging around from the farmer’s market and the garden: fresh corn, cucumbers, tomato, red onion. Chop ‘em up, drizzle with apple cider vinegar and olive oil, throw in some fresh basil, mint, and chives from the garden, salt and pepper. Serve with bread and maybe some fresh mozzarella. Tastes like summer :)

440 Tabitha July 20, 2011 at 10:13 am

Fresh salad components from the garden and farmer’s market. I’ve started tossing peaches or strawberries in with spinach and other lettuce I’m growing in the garden to make different salads. The fruit juices can act as enough dressing to complete salad without adding anything extra. Fresh broccoli kicks it up a notch further. Sometimes I dress the salad up with hard boiled egg or grilled chicken with different marinades to change the flavor. I’ve come to like the Hidden Valley Ranch Roasted Onion Parmesan Dressing for when I use chicken in the salad.

441 Rachel July 20, 2011 at 4:50 pm

Favorite go-to dinner would have to be whatever can go on the grill – meat, veggies, potatoes.

442 Anna July 20, 2011 at 5:40 pm

TACOS!!!!

443 Hannah July 20, 2011 at 6:26 pm

450 Amy Johnson July 21, 2011 at 7:43 am

I’m currently in love with anything with a Mexican flare to it, and I’m LOVING fish tacos this year. But in a pinch, I love to throw together a batch of my favorite fiesta chicken to be used in salads, as a topping for nachos, or as a filler for a tortilla shell.

451 Krystyna July 21, 2011 at 7:46 am
