I enjoy trying new recipes especially for summer, there seem to be more of a variety of fall and winter foods than summer foods.
By the end of May, I am so over the usual hamburger and hot dog ordeal…that even suggesting it for dinner becomes and instant no. Can anyone else relate?
Last week when I was browsing Chip and Joanna’s Magazine Magnolia I found a recipe in there that I had to try with the grilled chicken breasts we were having for dinner.
Luck must have been on my side, because the only item I did not have on had was the corn on the cob. So I ran up the street to Aldi’s and grabbed them.

Growing up I was told to never go over to someones house empty handed, especially if someone was having you over for dinner. One of my favorite things to bring to a dinner party or a holiday party is a Charcuterie Platter.
Tis’ the season of holiday parties I thought this would be a great opportunity to share with you; how to make the best Charcuterie Plate.
Charcuterie is actually one of my favorite ways to eat. If you like cheese, fruit, crackers or French Baguette, salami and nuts then you will enjoy this!

Sophia and I have have been going to our local pool recently several days a week this summer. She is my little fish. Anyways I have been trying to incorporate more fruits into our diets this summer and let me say it has been such a success. Thankfully, Sophia isn’t a picky eater and loves fruit.
I have been having a really bad fruit obsession I am always buying it. Right now we have Raspberries, Blueberries, Watermelon, Mango, Strawberries, peaches and an apple (only 1) all on hand.
When we wake up in the morning I will make us Oatmeal, because I know it is something that we both enjoy. And it usually holds us over until lunch time.
On days we go to the pool I tend to pack a variety of snacks. I always carry water bottles in our cooler, one gatorade and of course our fruit. I mainly eat the cashews, blueberries and cheese. Sophia eats a little bit of everything, but I think her least favorite are the blueberries.
As we hit close to August, I am trying to think of some other types of snacks to bring…something a little different. I am aiming for healthy items..but give us more of a variety.
Does anyone have any ideas? What is in your pool snack bag?
Have you ever heard of Hello Fresh? They provide you with all the ingredients you will need to make dinner and the best part is they deliver everything you need to your front door. I personally have not tried it, but would love to give it a try sometime. When I went on their website to check out how much their boxes would be to subscribe, I noticed that you are able to search their recipes. Which I thought was awesome, so before you commit to a subscription you can try a few recipes to see if you would like their food. And that is exactly what I did.

I came across this recipe sometime last summer and absolutely loved it! I love avocado, which was not always the case. I remember once years ago when I was in Hawaii horse back riding down a mountain and at the end the instructors gave us these loaded sandwiches. And on them was slices of avocado. I remember not being thrilled about the avocado, picking it off and stuffing them inside of my napkin. I did not want to offend the instructors that made us the sandwiches. Now, many years later I now have a new love for avocados, if I could just teleport back in time when I threw my avocados away I would eat mine and then steal my brothers. If you like avocados and eggs why not give this super easy recipe a try for breakfast or a snack. On the bright side it is also gluten free!

I have been hitting the gym on an every other day basis the past two weeks, considering I have only been a gym member for two weeks. After about an hour work out I find myself starving as if I have not eaten all day. I am really into Naan flatbread, if you have never tried it before I highly recommend it! So, I have been into this open face sandwich concept for quite sometime, and the best part with Naan flatbread it leaves a lot of room for experimenting! Here is what I had for lunch today:
