I’m looking for ideas for the summer. I live in a hot part of Northern California. It gets in the hundreds out here. The last thing I want to do is turn on the oven. I like to grill but I burned myself last summer just touching the grill. It wasn’t even on;(. My husband says salads. Ok but I need good salads. I’m not a salad eating babe. I envision a healthy shrimp Louie salad, crab and avocado salad, greek salad. Ok ,now I see this can work for a minute. Check out Cook This Not That! cookbook. They have a salad matrix. I saw green monster salad dressing on fitandfortysomething.com. This reminds me of college. I lost 30 pounds my last semester of college. It was kind of like the Jared diet. My boyfriend worked at a pita sandwich shop and I ate pita sandwiches with chicken and olive oil for 2 meals a day. This is getting me excited. Pita Sandwich, I hope I can remember how he made them. They were so good. I’ve already started my smoothies. I’ve seen so many green monster smoothie recipes that will call for a post all buy it self. Well ,I’m off to plan my summer menu. This looks like fun! I would love to hear your summer menu plans.
