A Week of Oven Free Dinners

Is it hot where you live? It’s been hot here, way too hot.

I’ve planned another oven free dinners menu plan this week to help keep the house cooler and to keep our cooling cost just a bit lower.

And since my oven broke and we are waiting on a new one to be delivered, it’s got to be oven free meals for us this week.

This week’s plan is not only oven free dinners but also some of my family’s favorite meals too. My daughter just loves the Southwest Chicken Skillet. It’s easy to make and so yummy too.

Hamburgers are my son’s favorite. I had stocked the freezer earlier this summer with hamburgers patties I made with ground beef I purchased on sale. Which makes getting this dinner ready, just a little easier.

My husband loves breakfast for dinner and we haven’t had waffles for a while so I added them to our oven free dinners this week too.

Lastly, you might not think that homemade pizza would be a good choice for an oven free dinners but we grill our pizza when it’s hot.

If you haven’t tried grilling pizza yet you really need to give it a try. The pizza turns out crisp and delicious.

What’s cooking at your house this week?

Here’re our Oven Free Dinners for this week,

Oven Free Dinners

We eat out every once in a while but when I see how much I can really save by burgers at fries at home, it really makes me reconsider. This is a great comparison on the cost difference of eating hamburgers out and making them at home. I was shocked there was such a price difference. I would have never guessed it was that much.

  1. I’ve never tried to make pizza on the grill, but it sounds really good!

    We’re having a cool streak here this week, so I’m able to use the oven without worrying about heating up the kitchen too much. We’re having a couple of casseroles this week and I’m trying some new lunch recipes too.

    Hope you have a great week!
