Watermelon Agua Fresca

Watermelon Agua Fresca

The Fourth July will be here in no time at all! I know because the neighborhood has been crazy with fireworks. When it hasn’t been raining anyway! It’s been like should someone be building an ark? At least I’ve had a reprieve from yard work. I’m doing little things here and there, like deadheading flowers, pulling a few weeds but am waiting on some help with some more major projects. I do know that I want to make this Watermelon Aguas Fresca for the Fourth.

White & Sweet Potato Salad with Chutney Dressing

I gotta say I’ve never been a huge fan of out standard American potato salad. Of course, that never stops me from eating it if I’m at a barbecue or potluck, but sometimes I wish there was something a little different. Something that wakes up the taste buds. Something a little special. This White & Sweet Potato Salad with Chutney Dressing is all that and more!

There’s no doubt summer is here, even in Minnesota, where for the most part it’s been cool. And there’s no doubt Father’s day is just around the corner, too, this Sunday. Father’s day always makes me think about being outside, maybe barbecuing, and barbecuing makes me think about ribs. I mean other than a big T-bone there’s not much more manly than Ribs! And if you’re looking for something different, take a peek at these Spicy Jerk Ribs with Sweet Chutney Glaze.

Watermelon Cooler Cocktails

Well, I’m finally home in Minnesota, back from Georgia and my daughter’s wedding. I’ll post more on that later, when the photos are in~but I was looking forward, after weeks of 90 plus degree weather down south, to more reasonable temps. Guess what? It was 88 degrees back home. And while I might be jumping the gun just a little, I’m loving these Watermelon Cooler Cocktails. They’re a little sweet, a little tart and they taste fabulous! Perfect for a hot summer evening.

Shaking Beef – Bò Lúc Lắc

Do you ever make a meal you’re so wild crazy about that you polish it all off regardless of how many servings it’s supposed to be? Well, that happened when I made Shaking Beef – Bò Lúc Lắc not too long ago. In my defense my son was over, so he helped out a lot with the eating. But still, we just couldn’t leave it be!
