Feels Like Summer

Posted on

Yesterday truly felt like the first day of summer.  The weather was gorgeous without a cloud in the sky and enough heat to make summer dresses, sandals, and shorts a necessity.

After spending a few hours at the pool and packing up some more boxes, I headed to the grocery store to get ingredients for dinner and for meals the rest of the week.

When I was younger and living with my parents, in the summer we would LIVE by the pool.  Just basking in the sun all day.  We would then come in from the heat with our cheeks nice and rosie and Mom would have a delicious spread of grilled foods for dinner, almost always with a giant bowl of salad.  I was completely in the mood for one of those meals.

Being in total summer mode, I thought that my homemade black bean burgers, sweet potato fries, and a giant tossed salad would be perfect!

Caitlin was in charge of the salad.  Doesn’t it look beautiful!




The meal was fantastic and the evening was great.  It was a great last gathering at the apartment with good friends.  We just sat around, talked, drank wine and beer…sometimes those are the best nights.

Today

This morning, I actually slept in.  I woke up at about 7:45, and I must admit that when I saw the sun peeking through the windows I thought that I was late.  Luckily, I wasn’t!

In the spirit of summer, a giant bowl of plain Greek yogurt topped with frozen peaches and strawberries, 1/3 of a banana, and half of an apple with a couple of teaspoons of peanut butter to top it off.

It was delicious!

What a tasty way to start the day.

Question of the Morning:

  • What are your plans for the long Memorial Day weekend?
I will be spending my day laying in the sun!
