Summer Entertaining--No Grill, No Oven

LeoLioness | Jul 10, 2014 06:26 PM

It's that time of year again....when my apartment is way too hot to have the oven on and I'm reminded once again that I don't have a grill (unless you count my George Foreman, and I mostly don't).

Yet I like to have people over for dinner! My go-to main dishes are usually seared scallops over some sort of corn/tomato/basil salad, or sauteed shrimp and chorizo seasoned with smoked paprika, then I build from there.

Any other suggestions? I love the idea of using my crock pot, but can never think of anything that doesn't sound too heavy.
