It was so fun to be on vacation, but SO nice to be back in my own kitchen once we got home. To celebrate our return, Josh and I had an impromptu date night at the Casa de Posy. I made some tomato basil pizza, homemade lemonade, and salad, and we watched a few episodes of "Monk." I'm like seriously addicted to detective/murder mystery shows. Now, Josh is too.
For fun, I decided to take things up a notch on the lemonade front, and when I was done making the lemonade (recipe HERE), I mixed it with 1/2 sparkling flavored water (I buy the Market Pantry brand from Target, it has 0 calories!). It was delicious, I tell you! Plus, adding the sparkling water cuts down a little on the sugar content, and when it's 92 degrees here I can consume a LOT of lemonade!
My mother always taught me to make well-rounded meals (which usually means a meat, a starch, and a veggie), so I threw together this salad with lettuce, cucumbers, croutons and balsamic vinaigrette.
Date night was a success. We filled our tummies, Monk solved his case, and my sweet husband loaded the dishwasher. Perfection!
