This Summer

At Home With Ann has been on a bit of a hiatus this summer.  We've been taking full advantage of the warm weather, and have been lucky to spend most of our days at the beach, playground, or running around in the yard.  I haven't been making too many new recipes, but here's a peek of a few things that have filled our plates.

 This pesto, eggplant, cherry tomato and bacon pizza was amazing.  In the summer, our weekly pizza nights often make way for grilled burgers, but this one was well worth cranking up the oven.

 Our CSA farm share has been chock full of tomatoes since the calender turned to August.  We've been having caprese salads nightly, and I've made a tomato sandwich for lunch every day for the past two weeks. 

 This past weekend some of my extended family gathered at the beach house for the weekend.  It was great to see them, even though my aunt made it clear in no uncertain terms that if I didn't update my blog from parsnip soup she would stop reading.  She did compliment my brownies and lemon bars, however.  They are always a hit.

For our anniversary dinner this year we ate sushi on our porch and followed it up with this key lime pie.  Meringue is pretty, but I prefer topping with whipped cream. I guess that means I'll have to make it again so I can share the recipe with you!

 As usual, we find ourselves overflowing with corn from our CSA farm share.  So far it's shown up in cornbread, chili, corn and black bean salad, and straight up with butter, salt and pepper.  Luckily, Colin has gotten the hang of eating it and no longer thinks it's a banana.

I have a couple recipes coming your way soon, one is a grilled pork tenderloin sandwich and the other is peach ice cream.  See you later this week!
