{turn your oven off}

This week has not only been hectic {notice my lack of blogging}, but it's been hot! Seattle is experiencing record breaking heat. Awesome. Ha! Luckily, it's supposed to calm down after this weekend. {fingers crossed....} Either way, people are enjoying the sun and accessible water. Speaking of, my dear Mister, even joined a bunch of his fellow soldiers today for some kayaking and biking.

Anyway....all this heat and lack of time, has me contemplating easy, fast, oven-free dinners! I'm not alone in this search, because the moment I clicked on Delish, it was their topic of choice for today too. I was happy with their selection. Click here for a selection of recipes.

{Avocado and White Bean Wrap}

{Chopped Greek Salad w/ Chicken}

{Italian Vegetable Hoagie}

{Mediterranean Antipasto Salad}

You'll have to turn the stove top on for this one, but it's worth it! Mister and I love couscous, and the fresh flavors of mint add a refreshing bite to this meal. Plus, it's easy to make ahead of time.
{Feta and Mint Couscous}

Enjoy the heat where ever you are today!

I can totally relate to "turn the oven off". It was pretty hot in Paris yesterday and I was baking a peach tart .. it was SO SO hot that I regretted my choice!
Your sandwiches and wraps look perfect for the summer season!
