roasted corn & avocado salad

RCAS-5019

So here’s the thing: I really don’t have any semi-decent excuse for being M.I.A. the past three months. I’ve had this recipe in my arsenal for quite some time, but I just haven’t been able to bring myself to write. And considering that this summer has given me so much to write about… it’s weird. I know.

I may or may not have eaten this pizza for breakfast.

By “may or may not,” I mean I most certainly did eat this pizza for breakfast.

If you’re a foodie who regularly roams the internet ogling at food porn, you’ve probably seen this recipe about 12 times over. Guess this post makes it the 13th time. So basically, consider this the universe’s way of telling you to make this bread.

But really, do it. It’s delicious. (No pressure.)

green goddess salad

Y’all, I’m still recovering from the sugar coma that this amazing four-layer chocolate cake put me in. (Sidenote: Sometimes I like to say y’all… I’ve been watching too much Paula Deen lately.)  In the event that you decided to bake an elaborate cake on any old random Wednesday (or for a birthday/ BBQ/ whatever else one might bake a cake for), here’s a salad to help reverse said sugar-induced coma.

25 Things About This Summer:

1. I made these guys.  Then I ate them, and life was good.  We’ll get back to them in a little bit.

2. I am almost finished catching up on all seven seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. In other words, I watch too much TV.

3. I wore a tux to work.  I felt like a penguin.

4. Gingie was spotted hiding on top of boxes of stock during a thunderstorm.  I ran to take a picture before consoling her.  Priorities.

5. I wake up at 4:50 in the morning for work. Yikes.

6. On my days off, I wake up at 6 am… without an alarm. Double yikes.

7. I can’t even tell you how many pots of coffee I’ve brewed this summer.

8. I’m 95% sure the coffee maker at work has a vendetta against me.  I’ve cleaned up overflowing coffee way too many times for there to be any other explanation (and yes, I do know how to brew a good pot of coffee).

9. Speaking of work, I spotted this gem in the parking lot.

10. I went to Michigan and ate at Zingerman’s Deli.  It was glorious.

11. My flight home from Michigan got cancelled. Typical.

12. I discovered this blog.  Genius.

13. Foodgawker overload.

14. I fell asleep on a pool float and didn’t get burned. Hallelujah!

15. Awkward flip-flop tan lines.

16. Cheese-balling it up at Niagara Falls!

Maid of Mist

17. I whipped up some Almond Butter Froyo with Amaretto Caramel Sauce.  Noms.

18. I made 3674569845769872305 supermarket trips… and I don’t particularly like going grocery shopping (weird, I know).

19. I exaggerated.

20. Olympic opening ceremony face dresses, say whaaaaaaaaaaaat?

21. Why were the Spice Girls not at the opening ceremonies?! #90skidprobs

22. I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge!

23. And once in Brooklyn, I ate at Bubby’s. Yay comfort food!

24. Every time TLC airs the previews for this show I cringe.

25. Air conditioning, I love you.

End random ramblings. Back to the eggplant rolls!
