I love Summer! Except for the blazin heat it is my favorite season. I love the lake, the pool, the grill, the fresh fruits and vegetables. There is so much fun and festivity to be had. I'm trying to make the most of it because time truly flies! Here are a few pictures of what we've been doing in this 100 + degree weather.
Me, baby Stephen, and Aunt Lu took a little trip to the farmer's market...bought some excellent tomatoes. Even though Stephen cried at every stoplight (he likes the car to move) on our way out there, it was worth the trip and we will definitely be going back.
Yesterday we had a little pool party at Aunt Lu's. Here's the Freeman collection of beach towels. I thought they were worth a picture.
Sweet Aunt Lu. It has been so fun having her out of school to cook for us. Oops, I meant to say play with us. She has made us some yummy meals though.
Also, she gave us a pack and play to use at her house. We have since taken over there a swing, a baby monitor, diapers, wipes, and a baby float that Stephen's a little too small for. Thanks for letting us junk up your house with baby stuff.
Stephen took a 2 hour nap yesterday which meant I was in the pool for 2 consecutive hours!!! It was a first. Everytime I try to swim at Aunt Lu's Stephen is fussy about something. Yesterday was a real treat. I even got a little sun burnt, which makes me a hypocrite in this family. I am a sunscreen fanatic...buy the highest SPF available and call husband when he's at the lake without me to remind him to reapply.
How about a good recipe?!
Salsa!!! You have to try it...so easy, so good.
28 oz can of diced tomatoes
1/2 large white onion diced small
1 teaspoon minced garlic (I use the kind from a jar)
3 tablespoons diced jalapeno peppers (again, I use the kind from a jar)
handful of cilantro chopped (this is my favorite part)
Put in the blender and blend.
You can use less or more of any ingredient depending on how you like it. Really... you need to make it. Taste so refreshing...you will never want Pace Picante ever again.
