Almond Butter Banana Smoothie

Almond Butter Banana Smoothie

I am loving our lack of schedule this summer, but I’m finding that it’s creating difficulty at breakfast. Without the need to get dressed and head to school (and with the luxury of having snacks available at home), the kids have been skimping on breakfast and then asking for snacks 20 minutes after I’ve cleared the table. It’s driving me a bit nuts, but this almond butter banana smoothie has been a great way to get some filling protein in them fast. It’s so creamy, it’s almost like a milkshake. Click over to Not-So-SAHM for the full recipe!

Tomato, Corn & Avocado Salad

Tomato, Corn & Avocado Salad Recipe

Happy First Day of Summer (tomorrow)! On this day, there’s no better way to celebrate than with a backyard BBQ with friends and family. Whether I’m hosting a BBQ or just attending, I’m always trying to search for the perfect side dish and this simple and fresh one by Martha Stewart is just the ticket.

It comes together in a flash with a few simple ingredients but bursts with flavors that scream summer. There’s no cooking required – even the corn is raw and gives the dish a crisp sweetness. The only word of caution with this dish is that you really need to make it the day of the BBQ. Even with the lime juice in the dressing, the avocado starts to brown a bit after a day. So, whip this up the morning of the BBQ and serve that day.
