When It Gets Too Hot to CookPosted: June 20, 2010
When the temperatures get hot, the last thing I really want to do is spend a lot of time in the kitchen on a Friday afternoon.
Enter the picking picnic.
I stopped by Wegmans after work and picked up some olives, hummus and a whole wheat baguette.
I sliced up and toasted the baguette with EVOO S&P and while that was cooking I mixed up a little burschetta topping with tomato, basil, evoo, S&P, garlic and a little balsamic. I also chopped up some carrots to dip into the hummus so we weren’t going too bread crazy.
We also had a small cheese plate with goat, gouda, and a mushroom herb cheese from Whole Foods. Sissy was also invited to the garden picnic.
I love have lots of nibbles of different things and trying new combos on flavors.
We needed a little more veg to go with dinner so I made up a giant salad for us to share from the bowl.
This was Nick’s 3rd vegetarian meal of the week and when I reminded him of that he said he was ok with that. I’m glad my boy has come so far! A year ago I am sure he would have never been drinking spinach in his smoothies or believing that a vegetarian meal could fill him up. I am thankful for having someone that is willing to try everything at least once and be willing to eat everything I make.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!
