[Oh, a Shoppin' we will go...]
His response will most likely be that, according to my list, he should pick up one of each fruit, one of each vegetable, one of each bread selection, and everything in between. Which is so not true. --we don't need onions or garlic because we already have a few of each.
I'm excited for this weekend, though. I'm thinking: cookout. I'm thinking classic/traditional
as fattening as you can get cookout. We just have to pick up my camping grill from my parents house, and a solution for the dogs so they can stay outside with us (without sneaking away to explore!!). The meal I'm planning looks something like this:
(haven't decided what protein to cook, yet)
Quinoa Salad (perhaps)
Fruit salad, plain fruit to snack on, or parfaits
(watermelon, grapes, strawberries, apples, oranges, 'nanners)
Veggies to snack on
...and most likely chips and dip/salsa and/or cheese and crackers
Talk about a feast...for 3 people. Maybe we'll invite some friends over...
What do you remember the most about summer cookouts? What are/were the staples at your family cookouts?
I remember that my family finally took the time to slow down and enjoy a meal together! We stuck to the basics: we always had hamburgers, hot dogs, and corn, but everything else varied depending on our moods (and the items in our kitchen).
