It's the time of year when I get way more excited about food. The garden has surprised me again by its abundance that seems to come all at once. How fun today for Kellen to decide we should have kale chips for lunch and take off to gather it himself. Of course, he couldn't help but pick some peas, beets, and carrots too. He even wanted to pick onions, which made me laugh since he hates them. (Maybe I'll get him to like onions this season!)
Every once in a while, I think I should start including more here about food, having the dietitian's perpective and all. But, when I think about changing what I do here, that usually leads me to thinking about why I blog and what purpose it serves. Which in the end leads me no where, since I'm not sure what is really my purpose at times, other than it makes me happy to reflect and remember all the blessings.
Since its all about making me happy :) and lately good food has been making me smile....
Black beans even went on the pizza tonight. Have you tried grilling pizza? It's going to be my new obsession. Mix up your pizza dough, throw it on the hot grill for 2 minutes to get a super crisp bottom and a light and fluffy top. Add your toppings and throw it back on the grill to melt your cheese (cook your toppings, like onions first). Tonight there was also my first batch of pesto added to the pizza and sauted garden onions. So very, very delicious. If you haven't, you MUST try to grill a pizza.
Don't you love summer food?
If I were a "real" blogger, I would probably take the time to give you some links to recipes. If I were a "real" cook, I might have recipes to share, but I find I use recipes rarely these days.
What summer foods do you love? Are you more food inspired (or hungry) now? ;)
