... SO MUCH!
I think my mom was more fond of my outfit
Anyone watch How I Met Your Mother? If you don't, you should.. then maybe this t-shirt would make sense. Thank you Austin for the best gift ever.
Anyway. I digress. Main point of this post - there is nothing that makes me happier than new shoes (this excludes people - I don't want to offend anyone..:)...). To complete the non-traditional 4th of July, we had pizza. How American.
And here is a recipe completely unrelated to the 4th of July. I guess you could serve it at a bbq because it is salad-like and made with summer vegetables. I make things work.
I got this recipe from here and changed it around a little to suit my taste. As usual.
1 Summer Squash
a few handfuls of fresh green beans
1 can of chickpeas
(1/2 red onion chopped) - I left this out. oops. optional i guess :)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp dijon mustard
salt and pepper, a little garlic powder
Trim and halve your green beans, place them in a bowl, and fill with water until the beans are just covered. Microwave for 2-3 minutes and then strain.
Slice the zucchini and squash in half lengthwise, and then chop into smaller pieces and put in a bowl and fill with water until just covered. Microwave for 5-6 minutes and strain.
In a bowl, mix all of the ingredients so that the vegetables are coated evenly. Refridgerate, and that's that!
