Tutti Frutti (Tuesday Tell All)

Today's topic for Tuesday Tell All is about what summer foods you like to eat. I feel like I just covered this topic with last month's TTA about "taste", but lately I have been dying for fruit! I can't get enough strawberries, watermelon, peaches, grapes. I feel like if I'm eating fruit, it can't be a bad thing right?

But as far as what the family is eating, well, we have been grilling a ton! It feels like we fire up the grill or we go out to eat! Last night, for instance, it was Subway, tonight we grilled talapia (all you do is put some seafood rub on it and throw it on the grill for about 12 minutes) and we made some new potatoes with a butter lemon sauce to go with it. Poor Jason has been craving some tuna steaks, but they are kind of pricey, so the talapia has to do for now.

As far as a favorite summer treat, well I found a kick-butt recipe for banana cake with cream cheese frosting. Mm Mm Mm Mm GOOD!!! (I add milk chocolate chips to mine instead of nuts...who needs protein. I figure banana cake has to be healthy, it's made with bananas! :)
Please enjoy these flavorful songs for this post:
