What’s For Dinner?

Well it appears this week will be the first hot one in the books for my little town.

Followed by many more, I’m sure, so instead of complaining I’m going to use this as an excuse to get some sun on my legs and enjoy some simple warm weather pleasures:

*drinking lots of water spiked with lemon juice (which is my new favorite thing EVER — juice a whole lemon into 36 oz of water, refrigerate and enjooooooooooy the refreshment)
*wearing skirts and dresse
*grilling in the backyard
*squeezing in some ultra-sweaty wods in the early evening
*and perhaps staying up a little bit too late since nothing beats a hot summer night (in the spring!)

Breakfast this week is made to order green smoothies (for her…since Garrett hates them) or chicken apple sausage, baby carrots and hard boiled eggs (for him, already prepacked in the fridge, ready to go!)

      Oh good. It will make my menu one of these days. Lately I’m just in a slump on Sunday so I’m reaching back to some tried and true recipes. Maybe next week…

    Oh ya, so. I made a cilantro dressing last week to use on my version of a taco salad (more like a chicken taco salad) – and I used the Dill Dressing (with the Beau Monde seasoning!) as a base recipe, but used lots of fresh cilantro instead of the dill! It worked out pretty good! Used the Bullet to blend equal parts mayo and sour cream (or whatever), some beau monde seasoning, green onions, and cilantro (didn’t have any parsley), garlic and then thinned a bit with some milk. I was proud of how it turned out!

Welcome!
