Hey yall! Hope you had a wonderful Father’s day! We had a great low key weekend—enjoyed a bit of pool time, family time and chill time:) A few weeks back we got together with some friends and I wanted to whip up a refreshing summer cocktail. This watermelon-tini fit the bill! Obviously the sweeter the watermelon the better….but if you happen to get one that lacks sweet just add a touch of honey. It’s hot….stay cool with a homemade watermelontini:) You’re welcome;)
We all have particular memories from our childhood when it comes to grilled cheese sandwiches. Mine would have to be when my dad was traveling during the week and my mom was just trying to get food on the table. She would cook up and gooey buttery grilled cheese sandwich with some soup….I am sure you have very similar memories. I also remember on weekends when my dad was in charge of lunch, he would get the griddle out and cook up everybody some grilled cheese sandwiches. It is the perfect comfort food featuring Land O Lakes Light Butter with Canola Oil
What a solemn way to end a beautiful weekend. My prayers are with the people of Orlando….in my opinion this was not a hate crime….it was a crime against America. These terrorist cannot stand that we live in freedom…they despise our freedoms…When they attack a particular group of our country they are attacking all of us. What they want to “kill” is our beliefs…and the only way to combat them is to stand together as one nation under God. Prayers….
We are starting a fun outdoor project today with our local carpenter Bob. He is starting a pergola on our side porch….I will share some pics as we progress:)
For today….I wanted to share an easy and healthy summertime dessert that makes great use of all those fresh berries:)
This will be your go to dessert this summer….fresh berries, just enough sweetness…a touch of butter and crunchy graham cracker. Low sugar low cal dessert that taste just like a pie with none of the guilt. You can substitute any berries you may have on hand….I am going to try this with strawberries soon:)
Hey yall…almost back to reality after some recharge time at the beach. I am pretty sure I could stay there for the season…maybe someday:) Wanted to pop in and share an easy idea to take on the road this summer. Weather you are going to the park or crossing the country….keep fueled up with a healthy lunch…that is tasty too:)
Summer road trips often mean packing lunch to-go….that is where this recipe was conjured up in my head. My mom used to pack sandwiches for the road when we traveled. I remember the blue cooler packed with ice packs, fruit and foiled sandwiches. We drove everywhere when we went on vacation…which I think was the norm back then. I still love a good road trip…and these Roast Beef Hoagies with Horsey Dip are perfect to pull together for your summer travels. June is Dairy Month and the perfect time to explore all the fresh and delicious items you can find in the dairy aisle. My friends at Heluva Good! sent me a couple dips to try and they were both very tasty. The Heluva Good! French Onion is a perfect dip for your veggies and this Heluva Good! Bacon Horseradish dip adds a zesty kick to any sandwich. I made some “homemade” pretzel bread to make the hoagie…so so so good!
Hey hey….hope you had a great long weekend! We are beach bound but I wanted to give you one more teacher appreciation gift….in case you are still looking for one:)
My friends at Folgers instant coffee challenged me to give you one more idea to use their instant yummy coffee and for some reason teachers popped into my head. I mean who needs an mid-afternoon break more than your favorite teacher?? Am I right? And guess what…this one is only 1 weight watchers point!!! Can I get an AMEN!!
