Good morning and happy summer!
It feels so good to know that we have finally turned the corner into my favorite season of the year! The last few weeks have been filled with lots of travel so I am thrilled to finally get to enjoy the season for all it’s glory. We just got back from a quick weekend trip to Colorado for my cousins wedding. She got married in the middle of a farm field in an old historic barn. I traveled over with my Dad, grandpa and Jared and we had a blast.
I was photographing the wedding so the three of them went stag together like a couple of teenage boys at homecoming. I could NOT believe that my papa could dance the way he did, a true VIP of the whole wedding with those dance moves. I don’t get to take trips like that often with them so not only was it a fun wedding but it totally felt like a family reunion too. Nothing like taking tequila shots with your Aunt and future cousin in law at 8,000 ft of altitude. Ah, the memories.
If you’re new to the blog I should probably tell you that you will see quite a bit of Mexican inspired dishes on this platform of mine. Espeeeecially when it comes to summer! I love the big fresh flavors that mexican cuisine brings along and with summer produce in abundance its the perfect time to take advantage! Girlfriend also just loves margaritas and anything that goes with them, okay?!
This fire roasted corn and heirloom salsa should seriously take you less than 10 minutes to whip together! I love making a big batch on Monday’s and throwing a little on each dish during the week. This simple recipe has just a few fresh ingredients that will take any dish from regular to wow! Be sure to chop each ingredient similar in size for a well balanced salsa. This easy salsa goes great on things like fresh salads, easy frozen burritos and any kind of fish taco! If you’re in need of a good easy recipe these blackened cod fish tacos are my favorite!
