Food Filled Summer Day

This past weekend, Elizabeth and I packed our (day) bags and headed out to visit Jess for a little Stay-cation day of R & R & Food. Obviously. What do 2 dietitians and 1 RD-to-be like to do for fun? Hit up Chili and Salsa festivals in New Hampshire, of course. We went to a hoppin’ chili festival where people were borderline obsessive about their chili. Being three veggie lovers, we didn’t try any of the chili, but we did sample lots of homemade salsa.

And then we spent this gorgeous day at the lake.

And came home to make a veggie feast:

Kale massaged with olive oil and salt

Onion focaccia bread

Veggies steamed on the grill

Corn, bean, cilantro, lime & grilled avocado salad

Farm fresh tomatoes

Grilled corn

And to top it all off: grilled peaches with melty coconut “ice cream.” Heavenly. What a perfect staycation day.
