Cucumber and Tomato Salad

It’s cucumber season!

I can’t actually tell that from looking at our garden. We don’t have any cukes yet, but I have noticed that people have been searching “Cucumbers and Onions” a lot lately.

In case you are blessed with many cukes, here’s another delicious way to eat them.  [Read more...]

Broccoli Tomato Tortellini Salad

It’s hot outside.  Super hot and humid.

If you’re looking for a cool dinner idea, this is your recipe.

I wish I could say that I had garden fresh tomatoes for this dish, but my plants have yet to decide to really produce tomatoes.  All I have are a few small green maters that taunt and torment me because they haven’t changed in size or color for weeks.

I’m a gardening failure.  But that’s a whole ‘nuther post.  For this dish I used a couple of store bought tomatoes and grape tomatoes (tragic because this is August) and 3 delicious cherry tomatoes from my garden.

Grilled Round Steak with Red Wine Vinegar and Homemade Seasoned Salt

We rarely eat steak.  It’s more of a money issue than anything else.  Yesterday I bought this round steak at the store.  Sure, it’s not NY Strip or fillet mignon (my fav) but it’s still beef on the grill.

I decided to do a quick marinade and rub with red wine vinegar and homemade seasoned salt.  The steak tasted as flavorful as it was quick to fix.

This is a bit of a tangent, but I’m loving the homemade seasoned salt.  It’s perfect on all kinds of foods.  You’ll see more recipes in the future (like tomorrow) that feature this new favorite seasoning.

Tropical Salad

This salad was perfect with the Hawaiian Grilled Chicken.  It’s full of pineapple, green onions, macadamia nuts, bacon…Yum!  I found the recipe on Bethany’s blog, For the Love of Grub.  I made the salad on Saturday, so we could eat it Sunday after church.  I mixed the dressing up, but did not add it until right before serving.

Quick Cole Slaw

I completely forgot to take a picture of this slaw after it was done.  We ate it up too quickly.  It was part of our “Dog and Suds” supper – hot dogs, root beer and this slaw.  It made for some happy kids.
