Most of this meal's preparation can be done early in the day. I love that most of it can be prepared and cooked outside so the kitchen will stay cool and clean at the day's end.
- Boneless, skinless chicken breast marinated in homemade Italian dressing for the day and then grilled by daddy that evening. Little J prepared the dressing and placed the chicken in the container for us.
- Grilled corn on the cob. Sassyfras, Juiciness, and Little J helped to shuck the corn and rinse it before I wrapped it in foil for the grill. Again, Daddy will grill it later.
- Israeli Couscous- Mom will boil on the outside grill burner
- Melon Salad, which will serve as dessert. Little J worked with Sassyfras and Juiciness to scoop the melon and place it in a bowl. It's really nice to see him teach his younger siblings (something useful that is...)
