An Easy Summer Meal

I can't believe that
Memorial Day was two
weeks ago!
I wanted to show you
what we had for our
holiday meal. It was
so simple!


Grilled Beef and Chicken
Kabobs with peppers and
onions on the skewers
with the meat
Corn on the Cob
Potato Salad
Fresh bread from the

Simple Table Setting

Plates(faux paper plates)
Target-3 years ago
Spring paper napkins-JoAnn's
this Spring
Glasses-Fancy plastic ones
from the store deli :)
Tea lights--LED flicker
candles-Ace Hardware-last
Potted Geranium

Secret: The plates look
like paper ones but they
are NOT.They are the Melamine
plates. I have three sets now.
Red, Green and White. Love them!
My tea lights will be great for
Fourth of July too.

~Keep on Dreaming~


  1. My kind of relaxed meal!! I saw those plates and passed them by. Maybe I should look for them again.


  2. This looks delicious. I'm looking forward to some picnic/barbecue meals this summer.

  3. Your table looks great! Love the idea of using the skewers...will have to give that a try this summer. :)

  4. Oh, what cute plates. great table setting made with ease. My kind of summer settings. Colors that can be used throughout the summer.. By the way....the food looks delicious!!

  5. Looks delish! I love easy summer meals! Sorry I've been MIA for a while, I had awhole lot of tech nightmares, lost all my rss followers, and had major blog issues, but it's all fixed, and now I'm playing catch up! I hope you're well...looks like you had a good holiday weekend!
