Like many of you, we have been grilling up a storm this summer. One of our new favs, these Pesto Salmon Skewers. In the summer, both Phillip and I crave fish and also no dishes. It is just too hot to wash dishes in my opinion. Our kitchen is a 10×10 room that no AC gets into, so the thought of turning on the stove or oven is frightening. However, this has taught us that most things that can be cooked on a stove or in the oven can also be done on the grill. Bigger bonus, NO DISHES. Grill these bad boys up and then lounge away.

From our kitchen to yours, cheers!
