I can't believe it's over.....and tomorrow July starts! But good things are coming in July....like my daughter and my 2 grands!
Meanwhile, I have been trying to eat healthier and more Mediterranean.............I made my own flatbread crisps ....I couldn't get them just right until the last batch...........I may try pita bread next time........
I roasted a big pan of vegetables.....
I watch Kylie Flavell's podcast.....and she lives in Italy. (She just got married and if you want to see the most romantic courtship, and marriage you should go watch!) She said that she tries to ensure there are 5 elements in her salads.........1) something crunchy (cucumbers, bacon etc), 2) something creamy (cheese, avocado, roasted eggplant), 3) fresh items (chopped tomato, bitter greens), 4) something sweet (sweet potato, roasted red peppers) 4) something salty (olives, bacon), and 5) something filling (lentils, chick peas, sweet potatoes).
For mine I roasted red onions (easier on digestion when you use red onions and roast them), broccoli, 3 whole cloves of garlic, 1 lemon quartered, red and orange pepper, summer squash, eggplant, and tossed with olive oil and salt. It was delicious and filling which is sometimes not the case with salads. I'll be making more!
The cutest picture of the day....Simone and her "kids" visiting Patrick Conley's home......they visit regularly and he posts about them. He does not feed them but they visit and he is sitting right there! He lives in Ashville, NC. So cute!!!
