A Few Yummy Things...
I continue to make some tasty meals, and whenever I make something we enjoy, I like sharing them here. Often, when I'm looking for inspiration, I'll come back to the blog and look at what I was eating a year ago. Of course, I like mixing in some new items as well. Here are a few...
Cucumber Feta Toasts - So easy and really good. Serve as an appetizer, or pair with a pasta salad and fresh tomatoes like we did and call it lunch. Perfect.
Cantaloupe and Bocconcini Salad - I thought this would be an extremely kid-friendly choice. Fruit, cheese, ham, all in little bite-sized balls? Well, my kids weren't really up for it. However, K and I really enjoyed this. Another very easy no-cook summer lunch. Served with a baguette.
Chicken Kebabs and Nectarine Salsa - Another kebab recipe? Yes, I'm a sucker for kebabs, peaches/nectarines are in season, and I love incorporating fruit in a main dish. My boys didn't gobble this one up like I thought they would either (apparently my little boy doesn't like peaches?), but we enjoyed it. The only downside: It involves a lot of chopping. But if you're enjoying a weekend afternoon with a glass of wine or sangria in hand, chopping is no problem.
Chicken Koftas with Cucumber Yogurt - LOVE this one. Very simple, but it's different from our standard fare and has great flavor. Highly recommend.
