I couldn't stomach the thought of drinking coffee this morning, so I whipped up a smoothie instead.
I used six ice cubes, strawberries from my mom's garden, fresh pineapple (I stuck both in the freezer last night to add extra iciness) and a dollop of non-fat plain yogurt. Pretty simple, and deliciously refreshing this morning.
Last night, I tried my bread machine's dough recipe for baking butter rolls. They're for company this evening, so I needed to finish them last night.
The result? Gorgeous rolls that are light and delicious, a lingering home-baked bread smell in my kitchen and the satisfaction of making something from scratch, with ingredients I can pronounce.
Local blogger Kristin Tennant yesterday wrote about a trip to see her family's barn.
I'm not a vegetarian by any stretch, but I have an aversion to touching raw meat that limits my consumption. (In other words, I'm happy to eat burgers someone else prepares!)
So when I discovered this recipe for black bean burgers in my "All New Good Housekeeping Cook Book," they quickly became a go-to dish, especially because they're sort of summery.
