What do you cook at the beach?

We're headed off to the beach soon for a week of sun and surf. We'll be sharing the house with another family and there will be 12 of us. About a third of the folks don't like seafood (crazy right?), and some are picky eaters who don't like "fancy" food. I typically will stop at the farmers market on my way there and pick up lots of corn, tomatoes, zucchini, squash, etc. I plan to buy some fresh shrimp and crabs and have a simple boil-like meal of southern shrimp (if you haven't had these they're amazing - new orlean's style peel n' eats), crabs, corn-on-the-cob and grilled chicken and veggies. Someone usually does a lasagna, maybe some chicken divan another night.

What are your go-to dishes at the beach? And what ingredients & kitchen tools do you always pack to take along? Feel free to post recipes! ;-)
