When it comes to summer meals, light and refreshing is usually what comes to mind. But the bounty of summer produce does more than excite out palates! Fresh greens satisfy the need to crunch, yet offer our bodies a much-needed rest from the heavy meals of winter and help cleanse our bodies. Fresh herbs bring flavor to dishes that cause your taste buds to dance and you can once again enjoy your food and the new flavors summer brings.

Summer for me also brings a time where I’m able to once again break free from our little one acre of space, the roads clear enough to travel on, the children easier to corral out the door without being hidden under 5 layers of clothing. We get to spend time with friends; to play, to talk, to eat. This recipe stems from such a gathering last week, where my children and I were blessed to be fed by a good friend. The longer I’ve lived my life, the more I want to experience new flavors, and this one truly ‘hit the spot’ so to speak. So much so, that I bought the ingredients for it the very next day.

    @Shirley @ gfe, Thanks Shirley! I used to be the pickiest eater EVER! Now I love to see what I can do with herbs and seasonings…even new foods now and again. :-)

  2. These pictures made me go out and get the couple of ingredients I didn’t have just so I could make it! It was so fresh and yummy-although I did cut back a bit on the celery, we like celery ok but it’s not a huge favorite of ours. Your comment of “hitting the spot” was right on!
