I love summer.
It just makes me happy!
It's something about it being warmer, and brighter, and overall just more cheerful!
Summer makes me want to relax outside, with a good dinner and a fabulous glass of wine and do NOTHING. I truly love and live for summer.
Something about summer makes me want to eat healthier, live healthier, and think healthier!
On monday night Snookums and I decided we were gonna have our own mini summer veggie festival!!
We had all kinds of goodies!
Corn on the cob
green bell pepper
It all turned out so delicious :)
We just did regular corn on the cob with butter, salt and pepper.. I mean really, is there any other way to have it?
fried asparagus.. OMG I could eat these ALL day!
And my personal favorite, brown sugar summer squash.
I'd never done anything with a whole artichoke until now- but I actually liked it!
I just boiled it in water, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper, and made a tangy dip to go with it :)
Finished product... (After already digging in.. oops!)
I love cooking :) And Snookums likes it too!
Our first Valentine's Day together, we just cooked a big meal instead of going out!
Just another thing that makes us a good match I guess... :)
I'm thinking its about time I start getting a little more experimental with my cooking. Don't get me wrong. Girl can cook. I just do mostly comfort type foods, and I stick to simple meats.
Sooo... we'll see if I can change it up and do something different?
Does anyone have any favorite blogs about food/cooking/recipes???
