I have an injury…from a tambourine. You know when you weekend ends with an injury from a musical instrument…it was definitely a good weekend. I haven’t danced for 3 hours consecutively in a very long time…good thing it was a long weekend—I had plenty of couch time too…I hope you had a great Labor day weekend. Looks like we are all back in the swing of things….always hard to get back to routine—but soon crisp fall days will be here, and I cannot wait! Puppy Chloe comes home on Friday…we are all very excited for this new addition to our family:)
It’s gonna be hot….like 100 degrees hot…I don’t have an appetiate when it’s this hot—I suppose that makes up for craving baked goods when it’s snowing outside…am I right?!?! :) These shrimp lettuce wraps are just the ticket on a super hot evening. They are full of flavor and low on calorie…have as many as you want:) I served them with some cilantro rice and it was a nice summertime meal…pass the margarita mkay:)
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:)
