Food Chain

Here are a few food links I've been wanting to share.




Food Chain.

Get it?

Okay, never mind.

Last weekend I made Kellie's Roasted Corn and Tomato Tart.
It was AMAZING! Especially with my farmer's market loot. You've got to try it!

I also rediscovered a recipe that I'd forgotten I loved for Greek Pasta Salad. Oh my word. I think I could eat this every single day.

I think I've linked this before, but this is my new favorite way to dress up strawberries. Tangy and tart and pure deliciousness!

I was flipping through Sarah's old photo albums this week and came across some pictures of her making painted toast. It's a super easy, super fun idea to use with kiddos at breakfast.

We grill burgers almost every weekend during the summer months. My favorite thing to eat with them are sweet potato fries. Someone asked me if I make my own. Nope. I just buy this brand. They are DELICIOUS. So are the onion rings! And so are the oven fries. Yum.

Do you make homemade guacamole? I do sometimes, but I usually end up eating the avacados on a sandwich (or just sliced with some salt)  before I can get the guac made. I've been buying this product for as long as I can remember and it's perfect when you need guacamole in a flash. It's great straight out of the packet, but it's even better when you add tomatoes, onion, garlic, and lemon juice. This spring I discovered the 100 calorie snack packs. I love the smaller size not so much for the calorie count but because there is less waste! I'm picky about the tortilla chips I use with my guac though. These are my favorite. These are a close second. And these come in third.

I think that's enough links for now. Happy Thursday to you guys.

I am a faithful reader, Mer, but also not a great commenter. :-)

Oh, how I miss tortilla chips! But we do get good avocados here - in season.

Loved Sarah's birthday pics. She's a beauty! Like her mama.

We also just tried out the painted toast for breakfast. BIG hit with the kiddo's.

I agree, you definitely earn the FUN MOM award!!!

So glad you enjoyed the Roasted Corn Tarts...

I LOVE guacamole and my recipe is simple ( and alot like yours.) I use fresh salsa, salt and lime. Mix and eat! My only problem is that I am the only Avocado eater so I either have to eat it all or wait for a friend to come over!
