Summer See Food

These photos are for you, iChristian.

This is my cherry salsa:

I serve it with grilled pork tenderloin:

It’s one of my favorite summer dishes.

One morning, not too long ago, I tossed fresh fruit with a bit of limoncello and ate it for breakfast:

But first I whipped some cream:

It isn’t exactly a baptist breakfast but fruit doused in limoncello is really, really good.

This avocado salad is the perfect lunch after a workout:

Yes, I use Chinet instead of a proper plate. Unless I have company. Who wants to do dishes in the summer, after a workout?

Sometimes the hub and I have a healthy, colorful fruit salad for dinner:

Or sautéed veggies from the garden:

Served with chicken kabobs:

See how I used garlic scapes as skewers?  I’m pretty brilliant that way.

For dessert, brownies made with chocolate olive oil instead of butter in keeping with my healthy eating theme:

I turned one over for you so you can see the toasted hazelnuts baked into the bottom.

You’ll probably want a close-up of that:

You might want a scoop of organic vanilla bean ice cream, too:

Bon appétit!
