on back to reality.

well my three day summer vacation is over, but it was lots of fun, sun and naps. many, many wonderful naps. while i was gone i got to share my shipwreck story with you guys, which i loved. all of you who commented and read it: thank you so much. it was a crazy story to share and you seemed to enjoy it, so i really appreciate it.
while i didn't take many pictures on vacation, i got a few good shots, and one great recipe to share with you.
an ice cream snickers bar! it had been too long.
reflections in the sound at sunset.
sunset over the sound.
my personal favorite. posing as j. crew models before dinner. didn't quite get it right.
and then, of course, the recipe. grilled romaine salad!
via here.
we had ours at the paper canoe - it was so delicious and luckily, very easy to make.
1. wash and cut heads of romaine. dry the leaves very well.
2. spritz with olive oil. if you don't have a little spray bottle to put oil in, drizzle and rub it over the romaine with your hands.
3. put on high grill, no more than a minute each side.
4. pair with roasted tomatoes or grilled peaches.
5. top with balsamic vinaigrette and parmesan or feta cheese.
this dish is so good and so easy - it will blow you and your guests away. i hope ya'll had a fun weekend - here's to enjoying the last few weeks left of summer!
