Hey Fellow Foodies,
I’d hope you are taking advantage of SUMMER 2012 and exploring some new things, going on vacation, and most of all EATING SUMMER TIME FOOD…!!! I know everyone has worked so hard to get that beech body (I’ve worked hard but still no beach body) Now it’s your chance to eat new things and not feel guilty. So I’d like to share with you a few on my favorite SUMMER FUN FOODS that are just more fun in the SUMMERTIME
Well this is year round for me. After high school in 2009 there was this huge uproar, especially in Houston, TX, for frozen yogurt. The first culprit was BERRIPOP and then since I started my new job it’s a place on the strip called Tasti D’ Lite. There is a huge difference between the two and I’ve learned that every frozen yogurt place isn’t the same. Example: Berripop is not meant to be saved for a later snack unless you buy a pint due to being an ICIER frozen yogurt. However, Tasti D’ Lite is a CREAMY frozen yogurt that comes in lots of flavors. So it’s based on preference and it’s a healthier alternative to ICE CREAM (OMG it’s my guilty pleasure). Plus for a hot day the word FROZEN is always key.
I know that you are not BOBBY but Grilling is key for the summer (P.S and when I say Bobby I mean the KING of Grillin’, BOBBY FLAY). I love everything grilled like veggies, seafood, chicken, steak, and everything else you can thing. I promise you can grill whatever you want. I feel like lots of people don’t want to get in with the groove of grilling (Like my family, they think grilling is the same a BBQ but I feel like its two different arts). When it comes to grilling I believe it gives you more of that space to amplify the taste and technique, whereas BBQ-ing is all about the smoke and juices. If I had to choose (I can’t choose because we have a charcoal pit in the backyard) I’d grill because it’s about that clean taste. I’m not bumping anyone’s opinion but ITS WHATEVER YOU LIKE… DO BOTH IT’S THE SUMMER honey.
My summer mission is to hit up at least 10 FOOD TRUCKS THIS SUMMER. (How many are you hitting up?) Well here in town I have already listed some that I’d like to try. Houston is a huge city but I know there is other cities out there where the food truck scene is amplified time 100. I hope that the case when we really get into the summer months. I looking at twitter, friends on FB with lots of food trucks here and I haven’t had time to hit one up but since school is out and I’m just working I have lots of time.
Well on that note I just want to end it by saying, it’s just the beginning of the summer so plan to enjoy and be SUPER DUPER spontaneous. Lots of us will be going back to school in the Fall and worked hard this Spring. SO ENJOY your few months of SUMMER(WE TOTALLY DESERVE IT). As always TRY SOMETHING NEW, I can’t stress it enough. Thanks for reading!
