Summer Yummies

Well Summer is passing by with lighting speed!!!

The long days of sunshine are greatly appreciated by the Haluska family and we have been able to try many new recipes this summer!!!!

Here are a few of my favorites

White Wine Sangria
This is such a simple but refreshing delight in the summertime. In the summertime I stock up on fruit all the time and it is perfect for tossing in the wine.
What you will need:
-1 bottle of red or white wine
-1 cup of tonic or soda water (whatever your preference is)
-any kind of fruit diced up
Put all ingredients in a pitcher let marinate and ENJOY!!!

Delicious Easy Chicken
Even when it is summer I cook in the crock pot. The crock pot is great in my opinion for the summer because you can be gone all day at the pool, shopping, or spending the day at the park and when you get home dinner is ready.
What you will need:
-1 chicken(make sure to clean out the inside of the chicken)
-1 bottle of bbq sauce
-1 sliced lemon
-1 medium onion cut up
-1 can of soda (your choice)
Throw all items in the crock pot and cook for 6 hours on low and you will love this meat! It is so tender and juicy!

Walking Taco Casserole
The Mr. loves Mexican I on the other hand get a little burned out by the usual taco, so when I came across this recipe I was excited because it was something different than tacos or fajitas.
What you will need:
-1 1/2 pound of ground beef
-1 package of taco seasoning
-1 green pepper diced
-1/2 a large onion chopped
-4 ounces of cream cheese cubed up
-1 cup salsa or enchilada sauce(whatever you have on hand)
-2 cups shredded cheese
-crumbled nacho chips
Cook the ground beef. Layer the crumbled nacho chips on the bottom of a 9x13 pan, spread the mat mixture on top, sprinkle in the green pepper, onion, salsa, and cream cheese, and shredded cheese. Cover with the remaining crumbled nacho chips and shredded cheese.
Bake at 350 for 40 minutes!

We can't forget about dessert

Ooey Gooey Rolls
These will make you feel all warm and satisfied when you bite into them and then you will feel the need to burn some calories!
What you will need:
-1 package of crescent rolls
-1 package of large marshmallows
-3 tablespoons butter melted
-1 tablespoon of cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of sugar mixed together.
Spread each roll out. Take the marshmallows, roll in butter, than in the sugar mixture. Put the marshmallow in the middle of the roll and form the roll around the mallow.
Bake according to directions!

Do you have any recipes that you have tried this summer and LOVED?
