Third Post of the Year

Good grief, how is it possible that the last time I posted was in January. Ugh… How did I let myself get that busy? Never again, friends, never again.

I have been debating about posting here on this blog because well… I always get nervous about posting. I keep wondering where that 2004 blogger is that I used to be that posted daily about anything and everything. When did I get self-conscious about sharing who I really am, what I all about, and what means the most to me? I am not sure when this happened, but going forward, I plan to be unapologetically me. I hope you like it, but if not, then that’s okay too.

Anyway, so much has happened between the last post and this one, but I don’t plan to make this a long drawn out affair on Easter Sunday. I have a bit of time in between dishes that I am making the most use of it by writing on here.

Our dinner is super simple today. My husband is smoking salmon and grilling steaks. I have made a couple of salads, and green bean casserole (by request) and I ordered pies for dessert from Village Inn. French silk and apple, just in case you were wondering.

I made a summer salad to feel warm vibes because the middle of America doesn’t exactly have Florida weather right now. Ha!

I look forward to catching up over the next few months, especially while we’re in a teleworking quarantine kind of reality right now.

And I will leave you with this super simple recipe that I know I’ll be using again later this week.

Summer Salad Foodie Finds Home Style
2 cans of corn (I like to use Fire Roasted)
1.5 cups of halved cherry tomatoes
2 cucumbers diced
2 avocado (optional) diced
Crumbled feta cheese (I didn’t measure, but if I were to guess, I’d say half to one cup, blue cheese also works well)
3 Tbsp EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
2 Tbsp Lime or Lemon Juice (either is fine)
1/2 Tsp Salt, 1/4 Tsp Pepper

Drain water off of the corn and place it in a bowl
Add tomatoes, cucumbers, and if you’re using it avocado, set aside.
Mix together the EVOO, Lime/Lemon Juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl pour over the salad, add feta, then mix together and enjoy.

*If you’re feeling really adventurous, adding garlic and shallots take it up a notch, and also adding chili powder to the dressing is yummy too.

Edited to add a picture. πŸ˜‚
Here is a snapshot from our porch picture session and a promise to write again soon.

Until next taste,
