Spring has sprung and now Summer roars into play with already scorching temperatures and our low country afternoon thunderstorms.
Bandit turned a year old this month and celebrated with a doggy pancake with his breakfast and a new Woody Woodpecker toy!
Don, Bandit and I enjoyed having family visit the second week of this month, while the temperature was in the 80s. I always enjoy spending time with family, especially when they live so far away.
I have some new refreshing recipes to beat the heat. My Cajun Lobster Pasta recipe was a hit and I served it with a Baby Bib Salad and Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing. I usually serve Chess pie in the fall or winter, however, I find that Lemon Chess pie is quite refreshing in the summer. And it helps to top it with a scoop of Vanilla Bean gelato!
The gardens are in full bloom. We are ready to harvest and dry much of our herbs. The pepper colors are just beginning to pop. I chose to grow a Cajun Bell Pepper this year and am anxious for them to mature, since I have never tasted one. Future review to come.
While everyone is out enjoying the summer sun remember to apply sunscreen and keep your cool! 🙂
