Summer for Dinner

I wore a new sundress to church, opened the windows in the house for the afternoon, and had an almost irresistible urge to forget all of my school work and spend the day reading my book on the back porch instead, soaking up the sunshine.

It’s time for summer to get here!  Since I can’t speed up time, I decided to cook a yummy fresh dinner and serve it on the back porch.

For dinner:

Mexican Pizza (from this month’s Good Housekeeping) and fresh salsa (from America’s Test Kitchen)


Pizza- a “homemade” crust topped with refried black beans, cheese, lettuce, avocados, tomatoes, and lime juice.

Salsa- tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, salt, pepper

By the time we ate dessert, it was dark, so we stayed inside, but it was still summery goodness:


Vanilla ice cream and fresh peaches!
