summer sundays …

I don’t usually link to other posts, but since I love this idea, and  The Tablescaper is practically a neighbor – Hi Sweetie! – I thought I would join in!



So here goes.  Summer Sundays to me mean grilling with the family.  Dinner outside on the deck, bare feet, and good food.   I am not  a food stylist, and it all tasted better than it looked.  This is one of our favorite summer dinners.  Grilled steak and chicken kabobs …

… a ton of freshly grilled veggies …


… and my favorite – which sounds weird if you haven’t had it, but Watermelon and Tomato salad with Feta and basil… oh my …


This one is a staple in Greece.  And the combination is delicious.  I never wanted to try it thinking it was too strange, but when I did, SOLD!  If you grow your own tomatoes, you are going to want to give it a try.  It’s best with the tomatoes still warm from the sun.  This is so light and refreshing – you will make it all summer long.  Just chop up some watermelon, add tomatoes, some feta cheese, chop up some fresh basil and drizzle with a good quality olive oil.  So easy and SO summery!

Happy Summer Sunday!
