Grab a plate

One of the things I love about summer vacation, is that I have more time to cook.  This summer I'm aiming for 3 new recipes a week (all without an oven- not by choice).  Remember the pesto and grilled pesto pizza I showed you?

A few weeks ago I made shrimp-salad pitas from the summer Food Network Magazine- recipe

too hungry to fuss about the photo- sorry
-regular paprika (rather than hot)
- feta cheese 

They were okay, next time I won't use the lemon and maybe add garlic or onions.  And heads up- the recipe makes made 6 servings rather than 4. 

Last week I tried a pasta salad Emily recommended- thanks Em!.  It was tasty- get the recipe here.

Do you have any recipes I should try?
