How is everyone today?
It seems like summer is slipping by, faster than anyone realizes.
My veggies and fruit and growing and blooming, sand is in every crevice of my car, and every member of our family is covered in tan lines in various shades…
it is lovely.
Yesterday and today the humidity was gone and bright sunshine prevailed, thank goodness. I simply can’t take any more humidity.
Anyhow… I wish my hair was long enough to do this.
At least now my candle addiction will not go to waste!
Yep… making a whole lot of this soon…raspberry!
Planning AJ’s birthday party… love these favors…
speaking of parties, this invitation is my inspiration for AJ’s

Have a good day friends!!
It may feel like 108 outside but I am not letting it spoil my mood!
I am definitely not a hot weather loving girl so I decided to make the most of it by making the family a tropics inspired dinner and oh my word did it turn out delicious!!!
For dinner I started out with this recipe but I made added a key ingredient- Cream of Coconut!
This lovely little can makes all the difference, it is sweet like the inside of an Almond Joy candybar… yummy!
I added the cream of coconut with the egg and coconut milk mixture. I also mixed a little in my sweet chile dipping sauce, which was also delicious.
I paired this chicken with some rice and the meal was set.
Finally, for dessert I made a tropical smoothie using frozen pineapple (I had cut up and frozen myself), coconut milk,
and more cream of coconut (about 1/4 cup). It was good enough that the girls were fighting over who got the last bits!
All in all a wonderful meal that will definitely be repeated!
What’s your favorite hot weather fare?
