10 Foodie-Licious Summer Meals That Will Make Your Mouth Water

Calling all food-lovers!


As a food lover, I am constantly thinking about food and am looking up different dishes to try on Pinterest. Some of my favorite meals can be enjoyed to the fullest during the warm summer months.

These meals tend to be lighter and more colorful. Here are 10 foodie-licious summer meals that will make your mouth water.

1. Summer salad with strawberries and blueberries

This classic summer salad is so dang good! It's one of the things I look forward to eating most during the warm months. It's light and delicious and you can never get enough of it!

2. Juicy bacon cheeseburger on the grill

Nothing screams summer more than throwing some juicy burgers on the grill. Burgers are one of my favorite meals, especially when there's bacon it... mmmmhhhmm. Add some tomato, cheddar cheese, and lettuce for a little more flavor.

3. Lasagna

Lasagna is a great dish to enjoy in the summer. It's not too filling and is pretty easy to make. There's a restaurant in Cape Cod that my family always gets lasagna catered from on the 4th of July. The marinara sauce they put on it is so delicious and they put sausage in the dish, which is absolutely delicious.

4. Grilled teriyaki chicken

This is one of my favorite dishes that my dad makes during the summer. The chicken is always so juicy and has a smoky taste from the grill. It's also sweet from the pineapple and teriyaki sauce.

5. Fish and chips

A classic meal to come across along the coast in the summer. The fish is always fresh and tastes delicious in a beer battered crust and dipped in ketchup. It's perfect for lunch or dinner depending on your appetite.

6. Chicken skewers with grilled corn

Chicken skewers are a light dish and are very easy to make on the grill. Pick your favorite veggies and layer them in between chunks of grilled chicken. Throw some corn on the cob on the grill as well and you've got yourself a delicious meal!

7. Shrimp scampi with linguine

This is one of my all-time favorite meals. I especially love it in the summer when the shrimp is really fresh. Topped with a garlicky and buttery sauce and some fresh herbs, this meal makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

8. Chili

Chili is one of my favorite meals to eat in the winter when it's really cold outside. But have you ever craved a nice bowl of chilly in the summer? I swear it tastes even better on a cool summer night. Topped with melted cheese and sour cream, this meal can be enjoyed any time of the year.

9. Tortellini pasta salad

Pasta salads are definitely a popular meal choice in the summer. My personal favorite is tortellini pasta salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, onions and feta cheese drizzled with Italian dressing.

10. Steamed lobster

A widely enjoyed seafood dish often soaked in melted butter. If you live near the water, you can get lobster really fresh from the local seafood pound.

7 Things Every Real Taylor Swift Fan Knows Will 100 Percent Happen On TS7



On April 13th, Taylor Swift posted on her Instagram a picture with the caption "4.26"... since then, every post since has had the same caption, and fans have been theorizing ever since.

1. It's going to be very different from "Reputation"


Looking at her current pastel Instagram theme, it is very, very different than dark, mysterious vibe from her "Reputation" days.

2. This will be one of Taylor's happiest albums yet


Taylor has stayed out of the media for the most part since the release of "Reputation", and I believe that she's enjoyed her time, focusing on her music, friends, family, and relationships during this downtime.

3. This album will reflect on her childhood


In 2016, in an interview with Glamour magazine, Taylor revealed that she was bullied in school, and her mom would often take her to T.J.Maxx after school to look at the opal jewelry in order to cheer her up. On April 14th, she posted a picture of jewelry, including opal. Also, one could say that her current Instagram profile picture has an opal tone to it. These could be hints to Taylor tapping into her childhood for her newest album. Oh, and she dressed up as a "childhood hero" for a New Year's Eve party...

4. ...But also focus on moving forward


From her fresh, pastel Instagram theme to the flowers, butterflies, and overall springy vibes, Taylor has an airy, happy vibe that yells fresh, new life. Perhaps the album will also focus on her rising above everything from "Reputation" and all of the new things in her life.

5. It's going to have hidden eggs placed within the lyrics


All Swift fans know that Taylor loves to play games and create puzzles for us to figure out leading up to album releases. Why does the album itself have to be any different? Hopefully TS7 will have hidden gems in it as well...

6. Jack Antonoff and Max Martin will be back


Jack and Max have been with Taylor since "1989," and I don't think they're going anywhere. If they made it through the sound shift between Swift's 5th and 6th albums, they can work with whatever new ideas Taylor comes up with.

7. If the old Taylor is dead, I think TS7 will be when the new Taylor fully emerges


There's been some butterfly emojis and imagery flying around on Taylor's Instagram, and in a way, I think TS7 will be Taylor emerging from her cocoon of sorts into a butterfly. "Reputation" showed that she was capable of change, and this new album will show a more mature version of Taylor.

Chances are all of these are 100% wrong... but hey, it's fun to theorize while we wait for her new single/album to drop on April 26th.
