Healthy Recipes to Keep You Fit and Fabulous

Summer Corn Salad

Yesterday was a day full of fun, food, and friends!

Breakfast

Laura made breakfast for all of us, consisting of classic bacon and eggs.

After we ate, Laura and I headed to Publix to pick up food for the weekend, while the boys went to stock up on beer.  Laura’s older brother and his girlfriend, as well as a few of their friends, were planning to join us yesterday to cook out and hang by the pool.  He told us he was bringing filet mignon and shrimp, so we volunteered to make the rest of the food for dinner.

After a quick Google search, I was able to find the recipe for a delicious-looking corn salad that I saw Sunny Anderson make on her Food Network show last week.

I grilled 9 ears of corn and 2 endive, chopped it up and threw it in a bowl with feta, parsley, red onion and lime juice.

It was quite a hit! Sunny’s recipe can be found here.

We also blended up some skinny pina coladas, thanks to a bottle of Skinny Mixes that Corey picked up for us.  He knows me well.

The boys lounged in the pool while Laura and I slaved away in the kitchen.  So typical 🙂 .

Laura made some fabulous bruschetta for everyone to enjoy as an appetizer.

Laura’s brother grilled bacon-wrapped filets and shrimp, and once they were ready, we had a feast!  Laura and I also made some smashed potatoes to go along with it.

Once we were finished eating, some of us stayed out by the pool, others came inside to take a nap.

Later on, a string of strange activities ensued, including, but not limited to…

iPad dance party…

Espresso making…

And measuring ourselves with a tape measure…

And the party continues today!

  1. That food all looks delish! Effortless yet presentable…I like that. Oh, and love those espresso makers! I recently bought one from TJ Maxx; it was the best money ever spent.
