Summer Eats -

Sunday, May 17, 2015
If I haven't mentioned before... I adore food. I could spend all day eating, (and I usually do...)
But, I have a few food allergies, so eating everything I want isn't always an option. I know I have mentioned it several times before, but I stay away from dairy and gluten. I know, it's a tough mix! But it forces me to eat more fruits and veggies and yummy meat. I am always always looking for new recipes of things to try, and new and different ways to cook things.  Here are a few pictures of some yummies I've had/made over the past few weeks. (Yes, I am one of those people that takes pictures of their food. And proud of it!!)

.:Grilled bacon wrapped mini steaks with green peppers and onions:.

.:Blueberry GF pancakes with brown sugar and cinnamon:.

.:top-sauteed broccoli seasoned with salt and pepper.
bottom-strawberries and blueberries with brown sugar:.

.:Cucumber, cherry tomato, onion, black bean, and corn salad with red wine vinegar:.
(Recipe here)

The summer is a great time to experiment with new recipes because so many fruits and veggies are in season. What are some of your favorite summer meals or snacks? I am always open to trying new things! :)

It has been entirely too long since I have posted! I think the cold weather and school got the best of me these past few months... but the sun is now shining, the temperatures are going up, and I am back :) I have A LOT of plans for my blog that maybe I'll tell you a little about in another post. Be excited! Because I know I am :)

I am so very happy that the weather has decided to get nice and I can start doing more things outside. (I have probably taken at least 30 walks around my college campus in the past 3 days because you can't just sit inside when it is this beautiful outside!)

School is finally coming to an end, and I honestly could not be happier. This past semester has been a rough one for me in more ways than one, and I am really looking forward to the next few months of relaxation and rejuvenation! Although I am happy that school will be over.. I am a bit sad because a few of my really close friends are graduating, and getting married, and going off to do incredible things with their lives. I'm so proud of all of them!!

Because school is ending, and I want to spend every last minute I can with my friends, we have been finding some pretty fun things to do in this gorgeous weather! Over the weekend, me and some friends go out nails done and then went to a food truck festival in Downtown Phoenixville. I had never been to anything to a food truck festival and it was SO fun! The lines were all pretty long for the trucks, but it smelled amazing :)

We did get Tornado Potatoes though :)

On Sunday, we got cupcakes and made some snacks and had a picnic in a field in the back of our campus that is full of dandelions! 

It was the most lovely ending to our last week of classes.

What are your favorite things to do in the sunshine? :)

Be blessed!
