I imagined that when summer arrived that life would slow down to a more leisurely pace. I was completely fooling myself. My to do list has never been longer but I'm still determined to spend a little more time away from the computer this summer.
Our garden is really taking off and I'm so excited for the summer produce. We have planted tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, eggplant, all sorts of peppers, okra, green beans, watermelon, cantaloupe and a few other things. It's the perfect excuse for me to get outside!
We had 3 inches of rain last week and it finally dried up enough to get rid of a few weeds. The kids joined in and helped us and although weeding isn't really fun, it looked great and we enjoyed doing it together.
Since it has dried up a bit this week the guys are starting to get the hay cut down and ready to bale. I try to have some great healthy snacks ready to go when they get a break.
Easy Guacamole is a favorite for taco night and this healthy Pineapple Guacamole is also a healthy favorite. I served it up with mini sweet peppers in place of chips. They were the perfect crunchy vessels for dipping!
I've been buying pineapples 2 at a time for recipes like this Pineapple Guacamole and Grilled Fruit Salad. They are so good on the grill!
