If you have followed my past few posts, you know that for me, the month of August has focussed on friendship.
As friends often go hand-in-hand with sharing meals together, this has led to many food-related photographs (yup, even more than usual). Here’s a small sample of what this past month looked like under that lens.
I began to wonder how ‘friendship’ would translate to recipe format. Google (and pals) have numerous suggestions. Here is my homemade version:
What key ‘friendship ingredients’ would you add or modify?
Think that I’ve cheated on this ‘What’s On Your Plate’ post? Here’s a favourite Chickpea Salad that I served twice to our Californian friends. This healthy, tasty, and shamefully easy recipe is a frequent ‘go-to’ in our home.
Still think that I’ve cheated? (Gosh, you’re hard to please!) Here’s a Mexican Street Corn Salad that I recently made when cooking with my niece on Zoom (family are friends too). At a recent backyard BBQ, I made too much corn (way too much corn). This recipe worked like a charm in using up all leftover cobs as well as leftover limes, cheese and green onions. Win-win!
Since August has been a busy family, friends and food month, here are a few more photos. These pics are from the last week alone!
And here are the granddaughters hamming it up the night before this post went live! 😀
