We went to Aunt Bonnie's yesterday for their 4th of July BBQ and it was quite the food fest. There were healthy snacks like bean chips and yogurt dip but it was so good I completely overindulged. They grilled succulent steaks, there was fresh watermelon, freshly baked rolls and corn on the cob. The homemade peach ice cream I brought was a complete success and was fantastic with the brownies. There were no leftovers.
That's what parties are all about.
Today I'm back to the French Skinny lifestyle. Lunch is a delicious bacon, lettuce, tomato, feta cheese salad dressed with a little bit of olive oil and white balsamic vinegar paired with Hubby's delightful cucumber salad. I don't know what it is about the cucumber salad but I'm addicted. We make a big batch and keep it in the fridge to snack on all day long.
One hothouse cucumber sliced.
Half a red onion roughly chopped.
Red wine vinegar. (We were out today so I used white balsamic vinegar)
Mix it all in a bowl, cover and put in fridge to chill.
