This was a new recipe for us and both of the guys said it was a keeper. It sounds so simple and not unlike things I’ve made before. However, the addition of brown sugar (I used organic dark brown sugar) adds a really special touch. Instead of red pepper flakes I just seasoned with Creole seasoning. I also added some garlic powder and cumin. It was amazingly good!
- leftover mashed potatoes
- green salad
- fresh strawberries
- Out to dinner with friends. David’s 50th birthday was Sunday but he had been out of town on business and didn’t get home until mid-afternoon. He was not only exhausted but came home with a bad cold. He stayed home today resting and dosing up on what I refer to as “voodoo meds” (a health food store concoction that really does work). He feels a lot better so we will go out and celebrate Tuesday.
- broccoli and cauliflower soup
- corn bread
- fresh fruit
- Friends have invited us over for dinner and drinks by their pool.
- broccoli frittata
- fresh fruit
- We are attending an afternoon wedding. I’m not sure how much food will be served at the reception. If it’s just cake and hors d’oeuvres then will either stop somewhere for a light dinner or I’ll whip up something at home.
What are your favorite meals this time of year? Do you try to eat seasonally. I’d love to hear some of your favorite recipes using summer produce and am looking for some guest posts. Let me know if you would like to be featured on “Guest Post Fridays”.
