busy this week but lot’s of yum was still had. here are some nibbles to get you through the holiday weekend. happy 4th of july!

refrigerator pickles, one of my lifelong summer faves. thick sliced cucumbers and onions in about a 2-1 vinegar and water solution. add some salt and let it chill out in the fridge. crunch!

best sunday snack! wheat crackers topped with creamy brie cheese and roasted red peppers. some grapes. an iced coffee. shaken, not stirred.

kudos to Clean Eating Magazine for inspiring my fruit “salsa” obsession. i’ve been topping everything from salads to meats with some version of this: chopped mango (here, could use ANY summery fruit), red peppers, green onion, corn, black beans, jalapeno, cilantro and a dash of olive oil. here on bibb lettuce with grilled fish and steamed edamame.

july 044
bored, hungry and cleaning out the fridge. stuffed left over jalapeno and red pepper with brie and pesto then broiled. wanted to grill but ran out of propane.

wanted to make calamari. couldn’t find any at the store. had pickles and panko. fried pickles cured my grease craving.

accidental BOSS potato salad. red potatoes diced and boiled. cool then add a spash of white wine vinegar, a squeeze of spicy mustard, dash each of salt, pepper, dried dill, celery seeds, chopped green onion, pickle and scoop of light mayo. didn’t measure. will NEVER be able to recreate!

my kitten-boo kickin it. eating so good is hard work.

    Sigh. I want to make cucumber pickles. And green bean pickles. Pickled beets. Pickled…..everything.
    Basically I love everything you’ve got here, and I think that I will be making a fruit/veg salsa to use up my extra veg too. Yum!! Except I think I’ll use peaches. And my 1 leftover jalapeno. SPICY!

    have a yummy 4th!

    Oh man. That potato salad DOES sound boss. Also, “bored, hungry, and cleaning out the fridge” makes much tastier things for you than it does for me. I would end up with mold casserole with a wilted salad and maybe some turned-cream for dessert.
