SUMMER IS HERE…and I think we have already gone through three watermelons in the last 2 weeks. We LOVE watermelon. Some eat it plain, some with salt, some with sugar well here’s a new way to try it and you won’t be disappointed:
Cut some bite size pieces of watermelon, put it in a bowl
Add a some fresh squeezed lime
Sprinkle some sugar
Mix and Viola…a wonderful refreshing, tasty snack. Enjoy your summer 🙂
BEST and EASIEST Peach Pie EVER!!! I got this recipe from my sister-in-law Merilee who is the best maker of all that is sweet.
5-6 ripe perfect peaches (skinned)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 lemon juice
graham crackers (about 12)
1/4 cup butter
1 pint of whipping cream
Smash about 12 graham crackers and add about 1/4 cup butter. Press down in a pie dish to make a crust.
Cut and skin peaches. Pour into the pie crust. Mix sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice, and pour over peaches. Mix whipping cream and put over top of peaches.
Normally you would probably add sugar and vanilla to the whipping cream, but this pie is already so sweet that you don’t need to.
YUM YUM YUM!!! Enjoy a yummy salad during the hot summer nights. Loved this dish and will definitely make again throughout this summer.
1 1/2 cups – uncooked orzo. Cook (according to package directions), drain and toss w/a splash of olive oil,
3 cups – cooked chicken breast, cubed and seasoned w/salt and pepper
1 cup celery, chopped small,
1/2 cup green onions, chopped small (i definitely didn’t use this much and am thankful I didn’t, i probably used 1/4 cup)
Dressing: (I cut this in half and again, was grateful I did…I don’t like a salad to be over powered with dressing)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup mango chutney
1 – 2 Tbsp. curry powder
2/3 cup toasted coconut
2/3 cup roasted sunflower seeds
Mix together dressing. Add first 4 ingredients. Top w/toasted coconut and sunflower seeds.
If you love pesto you’ll love this, and your kids will probably love it also. I call it monster pasta because it’s green which Roman loved and ate it right up. Bone Appetite!
2 cups fresh basil leaves
a little less than one cup olive oil
1 cup grated parm
1 tsp salt
1/4 c. (heaping) pine nuts
2 cloves of fresh garlic
Blend it in a food processor or good blender and pour over any pasta while the pasta is still hot. My favorite is angel hair. You can also grill chicken with it and serve with parm on the top.
