WIAW #12 - Summer Eats

What kind of food do you think of when it's summer time?  I'm going to share some of my recent summer eats as I'm linking up with Jenn from Peas and Crayons and What I Ate Wednesday!

Instead of focusing on a specific day of eating, I want to celebrate summer.  I love summer.  It means eating fresh.  It means eating fruits and vegetables without a whole lot of alteration to the food: easy salads, cold soups, etc.


We've also been grilling to ensure we spend as much time outside as possible.  It seem's there's been a prevalent Mexican theme lately.


Top: fajitas!  Middle: beef tacos; Bottom, left: korean beef ribs (from Trader Joe's!) with green beans and cauliflower mash; Bottom, right: fish tacos with salsa from Lyfe Kitchen

I've also been on the hunt for all things cold and refreshing.  I am normally perfectly happy with good old water, but lately, I've been mixing it up with the beverages.

Drinks: strawberry lemonade, orange ginger chia water

What summer eats have you been enjoying lately?

  1. What did you think of the TJ's Korean ribs? We got them once and they were chewy and not great. I'm wondering if we should give them another shot! :)

    1. We love TJ's korean ribs. Sorry to hear yours were chewy. Maybe you cooked them too long? We think they're pretty good - short of going to a Korean BBQ restaurant!

  2. Perhaps it's just me, but I always find myself cooking tacos/enchiladas/fajitas much more in the summer. It's a great summer food to the normal hot dogs & hamburgers.

  3. Your meals look absolutely amazing! I am getting hungry for dinner all over again (but it's already almost ten at night here). It's official - we're going to be grilling soon.

    [Side note: I'm really enjoying your photos!]

    1. Thanks Yuliya! I have to confess that the taco meal is a restaurant meal... not one that I made!

      And thank you for the compliment on my food photos. I LOVE foodporn and strive to make my photos (almost) as beautiful as the photos I admire on other bloggers' sites.

  4. You always have some yummy looking meals:) I tend to eat a lot fruit in summer, I could live off watermelon, berries and cherries.

  5. Mmm watermelon! I have a recipe for watermelon-lime punch that I still haven't made. I better hurry before the summer wraps up!
