For real. Is it Thursday yet? I can’t even focus for a complete minute. I’m going on a girls’ trip to the beach and I need it to be Thursday. But for now, join me in my nonproductiveness and let’s stare at food. I’ve put together a collection of MiN’s best summer recipes, so pick a few and enjoy your holiday weekend with good food and great friends. Let’s start with the booze. Everything should start with booze. Happy 4th! (Click on the picture for the recipe.)
Sangria<—Do I really need to persuade you to make this? Just do it.
Whiskey Sour Slush
Grilled Jalapeño Poppers (There’s bacon in there)
Baked Sweet Potato Fries and Spicy Avocado Dip (This dip is good on everything)
Roast Beef Roll-ups (These are fun party food. I mean, it’s like meat sushi. Come on.)
BLT on a potato “bun”
In case bacon isn’t your thing (what?), here are some blue cheese sliders on a similar potato “bun”
The best grilled potatoes you will ever eat. No jokes.
Corn and Blueberry salad. I know this sounds weird, but trust me here. Go for it.
Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
Spicy Basil, Tomato, Beef Salad
Grilled pork roast <–It doesn’t have to be this weekend but you should really make this soon.
Gluten Free Lemon Bars
Rice Crispy Treat Ice Cream. Yeah, for real. I made it a thing. I also embarrass myself in this post. Nothing new.
Salted Chocolate Ice Cream -Only the best culinary combination ever
OK so I really like ice cream. This is of the peach variety. Ridiculous
Raspberry Banana Soft Serve (A healthy alternative for the ice cream addict.)
And of course these Red, White and Blue (strawberry, lemon, blueberry) Macaroons
