Hello Memorial Day Weekend! I am looking forward to a three day staycation of relaxing, swimming, running, yoga, and catching up on the blog (including Monday’s comments). Thank you to all of those who have served our country.
My favorite summer fruit! I love eating a cold bowl of watermelon after a hot run outside. In addition to watermelon, I love my salsa…specifically pico de gallo (tomatoes + cilantro = heaven). I would love to try this Watermelon Mango Pico de Gallo recipe by Damn Delicious.

Muffins, salads, smoothies, yogurt….options are plentiful! This summer I am definitely going to make this Summer Corn and Blueberry Salad….minus the cucumber…not a fan of the cucumber/pickle fam.
Bonus: I also like freezing my blueberries so I can enjoy them later in the year.
“Movin to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches” …..remember that song by the Presidents of the United States of America? As you all know, I have a sweet tooth. I would to try a (Healthier) Brown Sugar Baked Peaches recipe by the Kitchen is my Playground.

Just like blueberries…strawberries are another one of those fruits that are great with everything! This Balsamic Strawberry Goat Cheese Crostini by Cooking for Keeps looks amazingggg.

Honeydew seems to be the stepsister to the popular Watermelon and Cantaloupe (I prefer honeydew over cantaloupe). A couple of summers ago I purchased some popsicle molds…but have yet to use them! I think for my first popsicle making attempt, I would like to try this Honeydew Mint Ice Pop recipe by Hungry Girl Por Vida.
