Feed me, Seymour

I love food. Those of you who've met me know that I love food a wee bit too much, but that's for another day. But as much as I love it, I also hate it. I will walk into a grocery store intending to get ALL THE THINGS that I will MAKE and it will be delicious and great and nutritious. And...many times I walk right back out, empty handed. I just get so overwhelmed at the thought of WHAT to do with it.

It's not that I CAN'T cook. I just can't generally be bothered. When I lived at home (till an embarrassingly ripe old age) my mom cooked, and then when I was married my husband did most of the cooking, and then when my sis moved in with me SHE did most of the cooking, so I've been let off the hook too much. But now my sis has moved out again, and it's just me. And woman can not live on toast alone, so...time to cook.

In the last week I've cooked more things than probably the last year. Meaning I think I cooked like five times lol. And it was almost all South American flavor, mostly because of a recently-discovered addiction to Mexican street corn. But I made cilantro-lime steak, steak with Argentinian chimichurri sauce, fresh-made guacamole, and beer can chicken (ok, that one's not South American). But now that I've tackled a few things, I want to try MORE, because it seems like I actually enjoy cooking to some extent when I'm trying something new and exotic. I have all the gadgets a cook could need (despite never cooking, I am a total gadet whore lol).

I've found some cool dishes on Pinterest, but I don't know how they are in reality. So, what are YOUR favorite (EASY) summer dishes that I could try my hand at, hmm??
