super YUM sunday!!

Today was [up until the clouds came rollin’ in] the perfect weather day. That wasn’t going to stop us from enjoying the outdoors though! All we needed was some lemonade [perhaps there was a little sneak of citron in there] and chips with homemade guacamole. Homemade guacamole is one of my favorite summertime snacks to make! I like to use it for more than just chip dipping… it’s amazing as a relish on burgers for one! Today though it was for chips… Ripe haas avocados, garlic, fresh lemon juice, vine-ripened tomatoes, salt, pepper and some super spicy stuff to take this guacamole to a whole different level. Everything was combined, with the tomatoes added last to just mix in gently. Into the fridge for a few hours to set and let the flavors all meld. Once it was time to eat, WOW! Creamy and spicy, cool from the tomato, slightly citrusy and just a bit garlicky!
Hmmmm… burgers anyone!!

an unforgettable day!

Today was a fun-filled holiday! Celebrated with great friends at a BBQ chock-full of wonderful food and drink. Burgers, hot dogs, chips and dip, along with salad on a skewer [awesome concept right!] Everything was delightfully delectable.
As dessert came upon us, there was a blackout cake, along with patriotic inspired cookies! To wash everything down, apple pie flavored shots and mudslides… YUM!
What an exciting, not to mention delicious day we experienced!
