Time For A Mocktail: This is what happens when you get a random craving for Moscow Mules on a Sunday afternoon, but the liquor store is closed, so you have to forgo the vodka.

Cold ginger beer (a non-alcoholic fermented beverage) + fresh squeezed lime juice + lots of ice in a frosty glass. SO refreshing with a bite!

Plussers: What's your favorite thing to mix with ginger beer? Have any creative suggestions?

I want one! (We actually have 4 of them in my apartment, so it's extra loud when they go off. Searing always does it!)
 
Or as in many other cases "I'm just burning supper"

I think I'm going to make this sandwich for dinner tonight! OMG it looks so good. I have ripe Hass avocado and leftover lemon pepper chicken that I slow cooked earlier this week. I'll have to run out and grab some fresh focaccia, bake some crispy bacon, and nab an heirloom tomato. So excited!

This is a copycat of Kneader's turkey bacon avocado sandwich except we subbed the turkey for rotisserie chicken. The copycat sauce was just as good and has just 3 simple ingredients!

In this year of game sequels and remakes, I am a very happy gal. #e32015   #gaming  
 
It's finally happening! Don't even care if it's a cash grab. I hope it does well so that maybe they will redo the other classics as those are the ones I loved most.

Italian Rosemary Pork Burger

Crispy Prosciutto, Sweet Bell Peppers, Romaine Lettuce, Parm Cheese, Sundried Tomato Aioli

When you go to get the prosciutto that was in the fridge to make some wrapped asparagus and ooops, dried out. Still good but you can't wrap the asparagus with it. So, turn it into a crispy, crunchy, salty topping for a burger by giving it a quick saute in olive oil.

The burger, lots of fresh rosemary and garlic, pan sear, parm on top. The crisp freshness of the romaine and sweet bell pepper. Delish!

Sundried tomato aioli, make some aioli, finely chop some sundried tomatoes and stir into the aioli. Simple and delicious!

Not what you had originally planned but sometimes you have to go another way....

BBQ HEAVEN: This Kansas City gal is SO happy to have found real smoked BBQ closer to Dallas (without having to drive to Fort Worth). Here's what I feasted on last night from +TEN50 BBQ: two kinds of link sausage, St. Louis ribs, traditional cut brisket (a mix of lean & fatty cuts), two kinds of BBQ sauce, home cured pickles, fresh baked bread, pickled jalapeños, raw sliced onion, stellar potato salad, mac & cheese (yes, the sides are actually good!!) + a complimentary appetizer of their torpedoes (pictured), which are bacon wrapped cream cheese & meat stuffed grilled jalapeños. Oh, and the cheerful gal working at the to-go counter told me that at the end of the day they donate all their leftover food to a local food bank. :)

What's the best BBQ you've eat lately? Do tell!

Enjoying the wildflowers that I picked yesterday under the 90+ degree afternoon sun. There are bunches of them along the dirt path that leads from my apt. complex down to the lake, but they'll likely get mowed down soon so I have to take advantage of them while I can.

Oh, and diffusing Lemon + Idaho Blue Spruce essential oils cause 1) they smell amazing together and 2) they are uplifting and balancing.
