Cooking ideas for 6 people in a rental apartment at the beach

Diane in Bexley | Feb 25, 201309:41 AM     47

So, we will be going to the beach for a week in an apartment rental and I am starting to plan things. We are trying to keep our budget tight, but still have some nice family dinners. I don't believe the rental has a BBQ. Looking for delicious but easy, quick suggestions as we will be preparing meals for 6 people (B, L, D) and don't want to be slaves to the kitchen on vacation.

We need food that will be accessible at a Piggly Wiggly(?) or other non-gourmet store. Some of the items we need to take in consideration: 1) red meat only once during the week, 2) hopefully we can take advantage of good seafood, 3) one person does not eat fish (eats seafood), 4) Mediterranean diet as much as possible, 5) no pork.

The beach is a 1.5 day drive each way for us, so we are not planning to bring any perishables from home - but will bring spices and decent knives. Thanks!
