It was the first year we were married, and I felt so grown up! We packed a picnic and walked to the park, carrying a nifty thing called a picnic ball (which held nested plastic plates and cups), chicken I had made from a new recipe called "Lemon Lime Picnic Chicken", and a wine tote (though we weren't technically old enough!). However, some "helpful" soul had told us to be sure to take Wonder bread for the geese. New Husband started setting up the army blanket while I got out the Wonder bread. As soon as the geese saw the bag, they stampeded towards me, turning me back into a toddler at dad's farm afraid of the geese nipping at my shorts. What could I do but hop onto the top of the picnic table..where I discovered it was a good thing we were eating some distance away, as the whole area was covered in goose poop!
Summer is all about staying fresh and cool during those hot sunny days. The salad I enjoy during a proper heatwave is a vegan version of a greek salad, with simple but delicious ingredients, when they are all combined in a salad bowl. All that is needed is a bit of salt, olive oil, sun-kissed tomato, a team of little black olives, red onion and cool cucumber. To make the salad taste even better, eat it out with your friends, while the sun shines!
Nothing screams like summer as much as watermelons do! You add feta and olive oil and you think you are in Greece. Mint gives the freshness and lemon/lime juice twist. Let's celebrate sunshine and sunny days and let's make this deliciousness over and over again!
