List in hand, I headed to the grocery to pick up the ingredients for a super 4th of July supper. It will just be the two of us this year…so we decided to eat healthy and light. We didn’t need too much since it is just us. We headed to the produce aisle to pick out salad greens. They were beautiful…we picked Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, onions and fresh parsley.
We headed to the bakery to get the Italian bread I love to grill. It only costs $1.50 for a loaf large enough for 10 good size pieces. I also picked up a package of chicken breasts.
We picked up Kraft Caesar Dressing, Kraft Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Italian Dressing and some olives!!! Since it is just us, we will have anchovies on the salad as well…yummy for us!!!
Of course, we picked up a small watermelon, some corn on the cob and my new favorite drink–Clear American Sparkling Water (Black Cherry for me and Key Lime for hubby). We also bought a small poundcake, some fresh berries and some frozen yogurt for dessert. All done for now!!!
At home we unpacked and started the prep. Hubby cleaned the corn while I cut up the chicken. I put the chicken in the fridge to marinate.
Thirty minutes later, I skewer the chicken while Mike fires up the grill. He slices the bread and minces the garlic too.
We grilled the skewers and olive oil coated bread…YUMMM!!!
It was a relaxed meal on the lanai. Happy 4th!!!

Kraft kitchens tips
Substitute KRAFT Ranch Dressing for the Caesar dressing.
Substitute 2 hearts of romaine, rinsed and cut lengthwise in half, for the torn romaine. Grill 1 to 2 min. or until romaine is slightly wilted and marked with grill marks, turning occasionally. Place on cutting board. Cut off core ends; discard. Cut lettuce into slices; place on center of platter, then continue as directed.
