Vacation cooking - need suggestions

Diane in Bexley | Aug 3, 2006 02:17 PM

OK, Family of 5 (grandma, parents, 2 teenagers), all diverse tastes, ages, etc. going to vacation condo for a week. We are hoping NOT to do much cooking, but can't afford too many $200 meals out. Other than boring steak and roasted chicken, what suggestions do you have? We will probably cook dinner about 3-4 times, all breakfasts and lunches where people can "graze" as they move from beach to pool. Remember, we are renting a condo, so have no idea what kitchen set up will be like and probably won't be too many spices, seasonings around. We will be at the beach, so fresh seafood will be a novelty. Perhaps some Chowhound recipes a la Sandra Lee's semi homemade cooking line? Please include recipes & ingredients. Don't eat pork, sweet potatoes, green peppers Thai or Indian food (very picky children!), TIA.
