I got two cups of yogurt this time and it is tasty (the ingredient list rocks my world).

After checking out my garden I headed to our BRAND NEW GIANT!!! We are soooo beyond excited to have a grocery store within walking distance! It is a beautiful store and was well worth the wait!


After making dinner rolls I headed to the pool!


Now, on to our Friday Night Date Dinner!

On the menu:

Summer Seafood Skewers with Marinated Zucchini and Onion Salad!

I started with the salad using a recipe from Real Simple!

I salted the thinly sliced zucchini so they could drain before I rinsed and dried them.

This is a mixture of olive oil, fresh lemon juice, freshly chopped garlic and S&P that we brushed over the skewers.

After they were brushed, they went on the grill one-by-one…


Perfectly cooked!
