I love eating.  It’s definitely one of my top three favorite things to do.  I try as much as I can not to gorge, but it’s just so much fun.  In the summer, I’m more in the mood for lighter/ fresh foods.  I had to take a picture of the fruit platter my husband put together the other day:

We’ve been really into kiwi lately.  A friend mentioned how much he liked kiwi a few weeks back and it was almost like our forgotten fruit and we remembered how good it was so we’ve been eating it like crazy.  And I love summer cherries!!  We found one smeared all over one of our white chairs the other day-  awesome.  Not sure who did it or how he/ she got away from the kitchen with it, but it actually did come out.
Could it have been this sweet little girl?:
{I just snapped this pic- what a rough life!}
Or this masked man??:
…Or this toddler in a ridiculous onesy?:
…I’m betting on the toddler.
So another easy summer meal we made recently was this grilled steak with a cilantro puree.  (pic below) I made the puree out of onions, garlic, line juice and cilantro & salt and I’m IN LOVE.  I’d had a Cuban steak at one of my favorite Mexican restaurants, Cactus Cantina and copied it.  It was so easy & seriously good.   Dave did the lime shrimp on grill and I made fresh guacamole and lime rice:

(I’m not going to mention the fish because it wasn’t that great.  Very ‘meh’ without much flavor.)

Anyway, I would eat this for breakfast if I could.  I love a fresh summer meal.  I think I need it again tonight.  mmmm mmmm mmm!

Ok, I’m off for the day!!

But on a really random note- Can I tell you that the funniest spam comments I get on this blog is an ad saying to “Boycott American Women” and marry a bride from overseas???  hahaha

I love that whoever is putting it on there thinks that young single men are reading my blog.
