This was my week for the weekly challenge and I wanted everyone to make their favorite summertime meal. For me it was less about the food and more about who was around the table.
Dinner was your normal summer food.
Grilled hotdogs (don't skimp out and buy the cheap ones)
Grilled burgers (the husband had these ready to be grilled by the time I got home)
Macaroni salad (courtesy of auntie)
Tater tots (because why not?)
Due to recent health issues my doctor has placed me under dietary restrictions. So that allowed little room for ingredients. But loads if room for creativity! Every morning I have a bowl of plain yogurt. Low fiber fresh fruit is allowed. With time running out on Saturday Bites I had to come up with something. It dawned on me that perhaps a dollop of homemade lemon curd in my yogurt wouldn't hurt. And it didn't. Normally I will have a small bowl of curd with fresh berries. In this case I swirled a little into my plain yogurt and topped with fresh strawberries and a spoonful of lingonberry preserves. This may become a new breakfast staple.

Summer eats in our house are simple. After an exhausting school year and many hours labored at work, we deserve the break. So tonight we made Naan Pizza. I love this dinner because everybody gets to customize their own personal pizza without the hassle of baking dough. Buy the Garlic Naan in the deli section of the grocery store and top it with your favorites. Bake at 400°F for 10-15 mins or until crust is crispy and cheese is gooey. My pizza was topped with olive oil, minced garlic, spinach, tomato slices, parmesan, and shredded mozzarella. So yummy! Try it.
Back in business.
