This past weekend, it was a delight to cook for my friends. Cooking reminds me of how I love to be in my kitchen, and bring my people together around our table. I wish more people would realize that all you have to do is tell people you love them, then gather them together for a good comfort meal.

We barbecued tri tip, served a Greek Pasta Salad with delicious asparagus (so good this time of year), and Summer Roasted Corn. If you’re a watermelon lover, you’ll have to try this Strawberry Watermelon Chicken Salad!

Shauna Niquest says, Gather the people you love around your table and feed them with love and honesty and creativity.

What this means to me is that sometimes the conversation around the table is light and fluffy, and sometimes it’s meaty and robust.

  1. I love that quote you shared by Shauna! So good! I had some leftover watermelon in the fridge, some feta from the farmers market and just bought a basil plant so I tried a piece of this today. Oh YUM! it might be my summer go to lunch..lol.

    Last weekend I hosted a baby shower for my daughter and I was reminded again how much I love providing good food for friends. In the season of life we are in, we don’t get opportunities to have people over often and sometimes it’s just the two of us and even then, it all depends on when hubby gets home from work…so I don’t cook near as often as I used to. Time to get creative with simpler meals and rethink what “dinner” means.

  2. Love the simplicity of this!

  3. Boy oh boy does this sound delicious! I’m in love with the combination of salty cheese with sweet fruit. I just bought watermelon this week for Memorial Day and it’s so juicy. Can’t wait to try this one! Thanks, Sandy :)

  4. Love asking questions at the dinner table too! And this watermelon appetizer is genius!! YUM
