All you need are these ingredients:

  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Olive oil to drizzle
  • Watermelon
  • Feta cheese (use a good quality)
  • Salt and pepper

This past week, it was a delight to cook for some friends. Cooking reminds me of how I love to be in my kitchen, and bring my people together around our table. We’ve also been enjoying meals outside by the fire, with our puffy jackets on, but oh, so beautiful.

We Flank Steak with Cocoa Chili Rub, served a Greek Pasta Salad with Grilled Corn Pineapple Salad (so good this time of year). If you’re a watermelon lover, you’ll have to try this Easy Watermelon Skewers!

For a little nosh before dinner, this Watermelon Feta Bites Appetizer.

If you love watermelon feta salad, then these bites are a mini version of that.

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.

We’ve always had honest conversation with our kids and that pattern continues today. And just as with our family, we love to ask questions when company comes to dinner. It makes the table interesting and fun.

Easy Watermelon Nosh

We’re totally ready to feast on life this summer … dinner with friends, hiking, picnics, meeting new people, neighbors, and investing in our town a little more.

Can’t wait.

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!

Happy weekend!
