Happy Monday! I hope you all had a food fun filled weekend. Ours started off on Friday night with an epic progressive dinner in which we hopped from house to house enjoying different courses. We didn’t plan the dinner around a theme and each course was a surprise so we had quite the smorgasbord of tasty cuisines.

Various types of unique bruschetta’s and an avocado daiquiri at Mixmaster Pearl’s.

A main course of shredded chicken and carne asada tacos on homemade tortillas in the LYK.

Last but not least, fabulous frozen chocolate crepes filled with chocolate mousse at our friends Marianne and Lindsey’s home.

More on some of these recipe’s later this week!

This super simple summer salad has a sweet crunch and is a perfect side dish for any BBQ or potluck.

You see, this was an accidental recipe. While half asleep one morning, I threw some left over vegetables from the refrigerator onto a salad for work and then later realized how tasty the combination of toppings was. I recreated it without lettuce (paying slightly more attention to what I was doing) the next day and ta-da – a tasty side dish!

Side note: Here are some random iPhone scenes from the weekend…

  1. As if one terrifying cat in our alley isn’t enough (cough cough rambo)
    As for the food… this looks AWESOME, and will be useful for the feta surplus in my fridge! (darn you buy-2-get-1-free sales at sprouts)

  2. I love raw corn and feta – this sounds delicious:)

  3. I love a fresh and light summer salad like this. Great combo of flavors in the dressing – balsamic sweetened up a bit by the honey and then, of course, the feta. Really YUM!
