Here is the not so local pile, friends from New Zealand, USA, Mexico and other area's of Canada were present. With all the fresh veggies and fruits in the house I'm excited to try a few new recipes I've found on your blogs! Thank you btw for sharing such inspiring recipes :)
Things have been busy the past couple weeks. We finally got a heat wave, so there has been a lot of swimming in the ocean, playtime at the water parks and lounging in the sun with good eats. I'm so exhausted today, because our weekend was filled with everything I just mentioned from morning till late at night. Mix that with heat, laughter, and running after little ones equals being tired today even after a decent sleep.
With all the busy days I've been making a lot of meals to go. I've been keeping things simple the past couple weeks. Easy peasy salads and dressings usually with a side of fruit.
I've also been exploring marinated vegetables...
Marinated Vegetable Salad
1 cup of chopped Broccoli
1 cup of chopped Cauliflower
1 cup of sliced Carrots
5 Radish bulbs (sliced)
4 ribs of chopped celery
1/2 cup of diced purple onion
Throw it all in a bowl and mix!
2 Tbsp of Olive Oil
1 Tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar
Fresh herbs (I used some Oregano)
Just throw the marinade into the bowl with the vegetables and mix :)
Hope everyone is enjoying summer!
