Festive Summer Fruit Salad

The Fourth of July is next week and I am SO EXCITED! It's definitely one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. And I especially love when it falls on a weekday, because hellooo extra time off work! ;)

We love riding our bikes on the beach bike path here during the summer. We will stop and have lunch and drinks at different places, hang at the beach for a few hours, and then catch the sunset on our ride home. It's my favorite way to spend the day. And it's probably what we will end up doing all next weekend for the 4th!

Curried Couscous

I've recently discovered a deep love for curry. 

I've spent my entire life thinking that curry was something I hated. Which is really dumb, given the fact that I had never tried it until a couple months ago. (Yes, really). But I mean curry is kind of intimidating, right? It's got a powerful flavor, extreme color, and a super distinct scent. A combination that can be a little frightening when trying something for the first time. 

Luckily, thanks to a Thai joint being across the street from my place and a hankering to try something new, I got a curry dish. And now - I need all the curry things.

Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Pear & Cranberry

It's been almost an entire week since Thanksgiving. I'm not really sure how that happened? To be honest, our home is just now starting to look like a tornado of dishes and used tupperware didn't blow through. 

Hash tag WHATEVS. 

But I hope you and your family had an awesome day! We hosted here at our place, and it was so fun! I spent a lot of my time in the kitchen getting the food ready. There was A LOT of taste testing going on. Like, by the time we sat down for dinner I was... incredibly stuffed. No shame. Every "cook" can relate, I'm sure.

Watermelon Pomegranate & Mint Holiday Salad

I know I've said this about a thousand times already, but this year is FLYING. 

Like how is it November already?

It's a little crazy, but honestly I'm not too upset about it because I LOVE the holidays. Once Halloween rolls around, I am in a permanent good mood. Everything is so festive, people are happy, the weather is chilly, it's just SO FUN.
