Indian cuisine is on my brain today, and I'm so excited about this recipe for Tandoori Chicken over at Wellness Mama. I always assumed that it was a complicated dish that requires very specific equipment to make, but this recipe calls for an outdoor grill to make it with, which is perfect for this time of year. It also requires marinating overnight, so alas, I won't be eating it today!
We are living in one of the most inventive times to be alive, and that includes food inventions! Chefs are constantly coming up with such clever, creative ideas that it just wows me. I could look at food on the Internet every day and not get bored with it just because there's always something new and exciting to see.
I am notorious for just sticking to summer salads during the hot months. Here in the Midwest, where "it's the heat and not the humidity," anything to keep your house one or two degrees cooler is a good thing, so if I can avoid cooking, I will. I'm known to eat only salad on hot days, which can get a bit dull!
Someone I love is celebrating their first major Pride this year as open to most of their friends and family and I'm so excited to be a part of it. I've been taking them to get rainbow gear, learning about the history of Stonewall and just really enjoying being on this journey with them. We're also planning on some fun foods.

Yesterday I was reading about this delicious-looking recipe for cauliflower toast and wondering how I might make it work. I often mess up cauli recipes--I just don't ever seem to get all of the water out--so maybe getting cauliflower that's already cut and riced is the answer. It's more expensive, but if the results are that much better it might be worth it.
As someone who continues to try and eat healthy, I must admit that I get very bored with my salads. It's not even like they're boring in the first place: I chop up and add veggies and cheese, I often toss in some avocado if I have any, I experiment with herbs, spices and dressings, but it still gets awfully boring. So one of the things I try to do is try out new dressings that inspire me.
Boy do I love a good hamburger. It doesn't even have to be meat; I love a good vegan burger, too! My favorite, though, has to be a medium-well cooked mix of beef and pork or good ground chuck on a flaky bun with bleu cheese. Yum! Pub cheese is great, too, as are any number of toppings, depending on where you're ordering your burger from.
Do you like making little roll-up sandwiches for lunch or a snack? I've always loved mixing up some dill and cream cheese, spreading it onto a tortilla, adding some chopped cucumber and enjoying it as a cool, quick bite. It's one of my favorite things to cut up and bring to parties, too. But if you want to avoid the tortilla, there are lots of other ways to do it, too.
