bbq quick and easy

need a super fun, easy and speedy summer dinner?
sweet baby ray's bbq to the rescue.

here's one of my fam's fav quick's so easy, i put everything you need to know in this one picture...

we use ground turkey or chicken most of the time, but whatever browned ground meat you have on hand is perfect.
here's the hard part...add sweet baby ray's after browning and warm to serve on a buns.
that's it!

we add some great summer fruit, watermelon in this case, some corn on the cob and cottage cheese...and viola! the perfect summer dinner...
we even use paper plates on ball game nights...what's more summer and family than in indoor picnic??

and the kids will love it...they will be totally speechless!
do you have any great summertime recipes? let me know! we'd love to feature them here!!!
