Did everyone have a good 4th of July? And by good 4th of July, I mean are you or are you not alive after this massive heatwave consumed the entire United States this week? Because I am barely hanging in there. The ice-cold Grainbelt beer, gazpacho and sprinkler helped me survive the holiday along with a Lentil Israeli Couscous Salad that might be the best salad I’ve ever made. Iced coffee, air conditioning, Netfilx and cold showers have been helping with the rest.
Are you ready for the weekend even though we already had a mini-weekend this week? Consider it a second weekend. I’m off to a fish fry tonight then Chicago for a mini getaway tomorrow.
Here’s some links to keep you entertained until my return…all hail summer!
Breakfast nachos. Get ’em while they’re hot…or before I eat them all.
These carrot chickpea burgers will be made in my kitchen next week. That’s only if the temperature dips below 100 however. If not, the oven stays off.
I am a genius: Strawberry Nectarine Milkshakes.
My homegirl Sarah has the most refreshing recipe for a cold brew iced tea PIMM’S CUP. Only one of my favorite British beverages ever (besides beer and English cider, obvs).
The newest addition to my Google Reader? Jeremy and Kathleen. Her creativity and insane design skills and amazing freelance advice is a total inspiration these days.
Yep, this article was written about me…and millions of other Americans. Take a break and read it.
Stay tuned Milwaukee! I am coming at ya on the Fox 6 Wake-Up Morning Show at 8:40am on Monday with easy ideas for cool summer cooking. Heaven knows we all need it.
