During the summer months when the days are long and the weather is nice, I love spending evenings outdoors.  But I also still love having home cooked meals!  That is when I turn to foil packet recipes.  It is so easy to add all of your ingredients to a foil pouch, place it in the oven to cook, and forget about it until it’s done!  

Not to mention cooking with foil packet recipes is a breeze!  You just throw away (or recycle) the foil when you’re done!  No messy pans or plates to clean up.  

Because I am always looking for new dinner ideas, I have put together this compilation of foil packet recipes for you to try.  Go ahead, take the night off, enjoy the summer evening, and still have a delicious home-cooked meal 🙂
