It’s officially summer over here on Thursday. Although, I always kind of feel like Memorial Day kicks summer off. Is that just me?
Either way, the weather has been gorgeous and it’s making me excited about dining al fresco in my new backyard for the next few months. Now that we’ve moved and Joel gets home at a more reasonable time on the reg, we’ve been able to have dinner together again, instead of just passing a giant baby between us in the kitchen at 8 pm.
We’ve got the grill set up, some old patio furniture out and we’ve been setting those tiki torches ablaze. Now, all I need to do is figure out what the hell I’m going to cook.
I decided to round up a bunch of healthy, paleo-esque recipes to give a whirl this summer and I thought I’d share. We’ve got everything from Grilled Grouper to Lemongrass Pork in the Dinners category, and Watermelon Salad to Spicy Slaw when it comes to Sides + Salads. I would have popped in some desserts too but, I got tired. And Foster’s got a real ‘tude on him this afternoon. I hope you’ll forgive me.
