When our friends invited themselves over to use our pool (why not?), we happened to be home with no plans, so I wanted to make a light and tasty dinner and ask them to join us.

I also wanted to cook something easy where I wouldn’t have to turn the oven on inside and heat up the house! One minute for corn (for recipe below) was totally doable …

Barbecued hamburgers and a few salads were on my menu.

Our friends brought dessert.

I had fresh corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, and always Bush’s Beans (Blackeye Peas) in the pantry, but I had still had to run to the store for a few more items.

I’ve been using the “notes” on my iPhone for grocery list reminders. My husband got me started on this.

Back to the kitchen to whip up this delicious summer salad, fresh, fresh, fresh …

After a little berry pickin’ and swimming, we enjoyed a great summer meal together.

To me, that’s the beauty of summer. Just hanging together and enjoying great food.
