yes. i am not kidding.
i love food a little too much.

Corn, Avocado & Tomato Salad

2 c. fresh corn (I used 3 ears)
1 avocado, diced
2 c. cherry tomatoes, cut in half (or whatever tomatoes are overflowing in your garden)
red onion, finely diced (however much you like)

1. combine into bowl

Dressing:
2 T. olive oil
1 T. fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp. grated lime zest
1/4 c. chopped fresh cilantro (less for dried)
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

2. Mix together & pour over salad.

you may hate me for sharing these ice cream recipes with you.
but i dont mind ;)

easy homemade icecream without a machine.

we made nutella peanut butter chip.
and cinnamon bun.
oh my. they are too delicious.
not sure that i will ever buy ice cream again.
(ok, well i probably will... )
(but these are pretty amazing and easy... so i should just make it)
(print these recipes (and then some) here)

i now need a nice big round ice cream scoop to make prettier ice cream photos.
my mind is dreaming of all the flavors we can make.
dave has requested snickers ice cream.
and i am planning on 'grandma's jam' ice cream for our next batch.

see why i jog??
