Any kind of salsa is my favorite, but especially those made with summer fruit. This Peach Cherry Salsa Recipe we served with salmon tacos, and it was DELISH! You may also want to try my Best Bacon Guacamole if you’re hosting today (happy Friday night!)

Soon to be empty nesters

I’ve been thinking about how we are going to be empty nesters in the next month, for the first time. Our home has been a soft place to land for our three twenty-something kids, and I can’t say enough about how much we love our young adults. They are definitely people I want to spend the rest of my life with! I like our kids, and I want to get to know them more as adults.

No event feeds my soul more …

It reminds me of this, that a friend sent to me, from the daughter of the late Cary Grant, Jennifer Grant, in Good Stuff (a book about her life with her Father).

Our parties were small parties. We had a white, modern-looking oval table that at most sat fourteen. You could see and hear everyone. The mood was festive and intimate. Barbara made scrumptious, home-cooked meals and decorated the table with her own arrangements of flowers. Dad was so proud. I understand why. Our home had love, warmth, and personal care. It was overflowing. That’s what we shared when we shared meals. Abundant love. One may enjoy huge parties, or elaborately catered affairs, but no event feeds my soul as well as an intimate, homemade dinner…..

Doesn’t this just make you feel good?

It does me. So I think I’ll save the last couple days of summer with my kids … before they’re off on new adventures!

PS. You’ve got to try this Orange Avocado Salad, too.
