Last night we met up with some family for Mexican (nixed the park idea since it was so hot and humid), and of course ate way too much! I forgot to take some pics but I enjoyed a fried tortilla layered with garlic butter sauce, cheese, chicken, tomato and green onion. So good!
And of course chips and salsa by the gallon.
Little man enjoyed it all too - a little homemade applesauce brought by my sister-in-law, some salsa, tomatoes from my plate, a few french fries from his cousin's plate and plums brought by me.
What, you don't eat random things like that for a meal too?
I was also brought a ton of fresh frozen peaches from my father-in-law and some extra produce my husband's sister needed to get rid of (spaghetti squash, zucchini and cucumbers). Gotta love the abundance of summer produce!
So here's the new recipe I'm trying out for the farmer's market later today - coconut macaroons. I found the recipe in this magazine...
I'm all about dessert recipes that have 5 or less ingredients. Try this one!
2 1/2 c. flaked coconut
1/3 c. flour
1/8 t. salt
2/3 c. sweetened condensed milk
1 t. vanilla
In a small bowl combine the coconut, flour, and salt. Add milk and vanilla and mix well. Batter will be stiff. Drop by tablespoonfuls 1 in. apart onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to cool on wire racks.
If you don't like coconut, sorry. Guess, I'll get ya at the next stop.
