It gets sooo hot in my house when I use the oven and I cant stand it.What are some non oven easy things I can make without heating the house up? we are a real simple family when it comes to food,nothing fancy or complicated.

My kids love fettucini chicken helper and we use the canned chicken. If you have a grill you can cook more meat outside and that would help also. I cook a skillet chicken parm. I cut up my chicken put some olive in the skillet and cook it then I cover it in spagetti sauce, then I top that with motzarella cheese and cover. Once the cheese is melted I put in on spagetti noodles and the kids eat it up.

My kids love mac n cheese and hot dogs also, they call it doggy mac. I use my BBQ most of the summer and you can cook almost anything on a grill. Potatoes (baked or dice them up and stick them in a foil bag with butter), corn on the cob, beef, pork, chicken, I literally use my grill for everything but spaghetti or mashed potatoes in the summer. I refuse to use my oven once it gets over 70 outside.

my kids are young, but they love mac and cheese with hot dogs, or if we are all eating the same thing, i keep skillet meals onhand, they are a lifesaver sometimes
