Ok, I know, corn salad??
But honestly, when I tried this stuff they were making samples of at Trader Joes I fell in love.
I figured maybe I liked it because I had had nothing but wheat thins and string cheese to eat for two days (it's been like that around here lately). I mean, come on, corn salad??
So I bought the ingredients and decided to try it at home. That way it wouldn't have the "I'll-eat-anything-when-I'm-starving" advantage.
But sure enough, I still liked it when I made it at home.
I won't mention those who-would-not-be-named in hip, delicious, fresh food connoisseur-ing who kind of turned their noses up at this dish. In my humble opinion, children shouldn't be included in the judging of food like this. But they did try "a lot or a little" (which is our rule with food) and I'm convinced that some day they will lick their plates clean when served this kind of delicious-ness.
Here's the recipe if you want to try it with your own family food critic connoisseurs:
For this night though (since we don't have a bbq over here, and I was in the mood), I whipped up some bruschetta.
Why am I so in love with this stuff?
I just broiled the french bread spread with pesto in the oven, then added the cheese, tomatoes and balsamic drizzle (the best kind of balsamic glaze is at Trader Joes BTW).
Let's just take one closer look at that and drool for a sec:
Ok, on to other things, we sold our home.
Yep, the one we have lived in for 12 years and that we adore.
But it's ok because we sold it to an awesome family who also have four girls and a boy who we are excited we get to live close to.
A family who is moving in quicker than we had our brains wrapped around. So we're kind of scrambling to get it all ready for them. We are selling a whole bunch of stuff from the inside and I know a bunch of blog readers asked me to tell when that day came.
So email me at sepphotography at gmail dot com if you are local and interested in coming to take a look at anything like these metal window-frame picture holders:
Or this blue bench:
We are doing a home decor sale on Friday (along with a few friends who are selling a bunch of stuff) but if you're local and want to meet me over there to check anything else sooner let me know.
If you're not local, just go make that roasted corn salad and bruschetta and eat it up :)
