simple foods


I'm loving the foods we've been eating as of late due to the warmer weather. We've been firing up the grill and enjoying the wonderful flavor of grilled meats. We've also been eating roasted asparagus on a regular basis. It's my absolute favorite veggie so I'm eating as much of it now as I can possibly stand.

I'm also a huge fan of rice bowls. So, in keeping with that theme, I've taken to putting my favorite foods mentioned above in a bowl atop some yummy rice. The rice above is a new one for us -- Della Aromatic Basmati Brown Rice. It's wonderful. And armomatic, just like the name says. While it was cooking on the stove top, the entire house smelled like popcorn. Serious. I'm not kidding. It smelled just like popcorn popping. Who would have ever guessed? Certainly not me.

This is what I love about spring. Simple foods. Wonderful flavor.

@dmoms - salmon is another of my favorites but what you see in the pic is chicken tenderloins that were marinated in an orange juice/teriyaki marinade and then skewered. i thought they looked like giant shrimp.
