Summer Meal: Grilled Salmon & Shrimp and Crispy Baked Potato

 
We hit 100 degrees today…or at least it sure enough felt like it. On top of that we had music lessons and Vacation Bible School.  All of this meant that I had like less than no time to make a meal. My go to quick meals are different in the summer than winter. For one, during the hot days of summer I usually try not to even look at my oven.  But inevitably I know that I will have to turn it on.  When I do cut on the oven I try to make it purposeful and quick.  Baked potatoes are perfect for this and to top it all off - this entire meal took me less than an hour to make.  So even though I had to turn on the oven it wasn’t for long!

Happy healthy eating and stay cool!
