Recipes and strategies for fast and easy to make dinners - I've read the threads, and there are tons, with all kinds of great advice. But it's summer, and my partner has tons of time to shop and easy access to better and more varied produce and meat than we've ever had before. Which means I'm looking for your best non pantry or pre-prepared food weeknight dinner hacks. Unusual pairings or uncommon cuisines are totally cool... we can track down ingredients, we just want the actual prep+cooking work to not take too long.
So, hit me with your best quick-to-make summer dinners for two (or more) people without a grill who want to eat like the season's going out of style in the Bay Area. Actually, slow recipes that are low-maintenance are fine too, but low and slow doesn't usually strike me as the way to go this season. But if you feel like proving me wrong, we love stews and soups and spicy things.
