Healthy summer party and grilling recipes

Hello!! Happy Monday, and Happy Memorial Day. We’re definitely spending some time today being thankful to those who serve, and have served, to protect our country. The Pilot had a 4-day weekend, so we took a family trip to Jacksonville! I’ll be back tomorrow with a full recap tons of pics, but in the meantime, I thought I’d pop in and share some ideas if you’re grilling and throwing summer parties.

I LOVE grilling season -our grill actually didn’t make the cut to travel across the country, so we need a new one- and it’s such an easy and healthy way to make dinner. The best part: very little cleanup. Something about veggies and meat on the grill let’s us all know that summer is officially here. We have some fun get-togethers planned over the next couple of months, and I’ve started to brainstorm and remember my favorite summer grilling and party recipes.

Here’s a little list if you’re looking for inspiration, too!
