The hotness never ceases

  We have been trying to eat outside as much as possible lately, and it has been pretty easy except for the past couple of days.  Yesterday was about a million degrees outside and it looks like that trend will continue throughout the week.  Well, that just means primo grilling time!

We made some barbecued chicken the other night.  Pretty self explanatory.  Also roasted some beans and peas with shallots and some potatoes and cherry tomatoes.  The cherry tomatoes were nice, they kind of caramelized and became super sweet.  Try it out.

I don't know if it is the warm weather or what, but around this time of year I always start to get the desire to eat healthier/ lighter.  So, with that in mind, the coming posts should be somewhat healthy and light.  Not that it's a bad thing.  Who can eat a ton in this heat anyway?  

I made some granola/energy bars last night from a recipe that was in one of amy's martha stewart magazines.  Really tasty, kind of like a cliff bar sans chemical aftertaste.  On my days off, I will also be making shortbread and cupcakes, etc.  peace
