I've been working hard mentally trying to think of easy meals I can put together while there. I volunteered to cook the first night and planned to make Katie Workman's enchiladas I've made about 100 times this past year because they are easy and my kids love them. I've made them for friends and family and church but not for my brothers, wives, and children so I thought it would be the perfect recipe until I talked to my mother yesterday. After our chat I'm not going to make that recipe but am going to turn it into tacos with all ingredients out on the table so everyone can make their own. I'm also going to serve these margaritas that I love and hopefully my family will also. If they don't; more for me I guess!
I'm going to bring the ingredients to make sushi. Groovy Girl and I have been making these easy rolls for lunch and we love them. All you need are one package of nori, sushi rice, a packet or can of wild caught Alaskan Salmon, a couple of thinly sliced carrots, maybe a few sprigs of parsley or leaves of spinach will work and you can roll up a healthy lunch. Beats a PB and J for sure.
It's hard to believe when we return from our trip it will be July already and my short summer respite will be more than half over. My new school district starts school mid-August.
Stay cool and out of the rain.
