summer foods

We’ve been doing a fair amount of grilling around here since the weather has heated up. And although I didn’t take a picture of this one, you should give Yogurt Marinated Chicken a try on your grill this summer. I promise you, it’s worth it.

We also roasted some poblanos and stuffed them with corn risotto, because Deb from Smitten Kitchen is a genius and created Corn Risotto Stuffed Peppers. We topped them with some slow cooked carnitas and took what could have been a vegetarian entree to a meat eaters dish. It was delicious.

In an effort to get us to eat some more fruit, I whipped up Bon Apetite’s Strawberry-coconut lassi (a fancy word for smoothie, I’m assuming): 1.5c strawberry, 2/3 ice, 1/3c buttermilk, 1/3c coconut milk, 1tbsp sugar. Blend. Yum.

And finally, what’s summer without my obsession with homemade frozen concoctions. We tried Cooking Light’s lower fat version of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and weren’t disappointed at all.

    lassi is the hindi word for yougurt-based smoothies.
    if it was milk-based, it would be called sherbet.
