Tastes Like Summer

This post is a day late and a dozen pictures short, but I worked the weekend shift so it is what it is.  The good news – now this is a four day work-week with Wednesday off.  The better news – starting this Saturday I’m on vacation! <– I’m taking a looong, overdue break, practically three weeks off (I’m off two full weeks with a three-day week in between).

Here were the bite highlights from last week…

Soursop smoothie.  <– creamy, but not flavorful and not as exciting as I was hoping for

Coffee, coffee, coffee.

I’m not even close to sick of watermelon yet this summer.

If I had to pick a favorite flavor of Ben & Jerry’s this would be it.

Crunchy cola marshmallows; I’m not sure how many other people would like these, but they are pretty much my new favorite thing.

Curried cauliflower salad.

I very loosely followed this recipe.  With uncured chicken hot dogs.

I made the fanciest salmon dinner.  And it didn’t even take that long!

Salmon roasted in thyme honey balsamic vinaigrette with roasted kumato tomatoes with balsamic.

Miso-glzed radishes.  <– apparently we love radishes, who knew!

Maple baked beans (pinto beans, maple turkey sausage, maple syrup, cayenne, red pepper, and more) and homemade cole slaw with golden raisins.

With a s’mores beer to round out the campfire vibe.

P.S. I’m turning 32 in less than a week, my birthday is next Monday!
