Long Weekends and Food Revolutions

It's Food Revolution Day... Thanks Jamie Oliver and Team!

Around our house we are not doing much out of the ordinary to celebrate, good food and cooking is like Valentines Day..we celebrate every day.

Today's menu is long weekend, warm weather inspired. There will be hamburgers on the grill and salads galore. Salads fill our fridge for the summer. They are cool, refreshing, easily made ahead and kept on hand for quick lunches and dinners. Leaving extra time for soaking up the sun.

An easy one for today...
Simple Simple Simple

Tomato, sliced fresh mozzarella, fresh basil
sprinkled with extra virgin olive oil and some course salt

We will also be enjoying a cucumber salad, potato salad and I believe a green papaya lurks in the crisper waiting for a spicy dressing! Follow the 'salad' label for these and other great recipes. All of which are very easily put together by children! Yes, that equates to more deck time for you :)

Enjoy the long weekend, cook something great, visit a farm this weekend, let your kids loose in the kitchen...celebrate! Happy Food Revolution Day!!!

Eat well, laugh often, love much.
