Eating with the Armstrongs

Summer life promises to be a little bit slower for us, and we’ll welcome that wholeheartedly! But with settling into our new home and adding a puppy to the fam (pictures coming soon!) who knows what the pace will really look like.
In the coming weeks, look for a post on gardening! My parents helped us plant flower beds this weekend as well as an herb and vegetable garden. Here’s to hoping everything will remain alive throughout the summer. Taking on a green thumb promises to be a good workout and a chance to get some intense tan lines.

Recently we have enjoyed the following recipes:

Cilantro Garlic Chicken

This grilled chicken is ideal for summertime and FULL of flavor. I served it alongside of some roasted broccoli.

Pop Rock Truffles

A friend made these whimsical treats for a baby shower recently, and they are truly phenomenal! Pretty simple and a really creative idea for the plethora of summer showers and parties.

Springtime Portobello & Asparagus Pizza

Another recipe from one of my favorite blogs, this pizza is incredible. I substituted bacon as a cheaper alternative to prosciutto.

Raspberry Sorbet

Raspberries & sugar, how can you go wrong? This cold, tart summer sweet is delicious. Instead of fresh raspberries, I actually used thawed frozen ones and the flavor was still full and bright!

Crock Pot Short Rib Tacos

The flavor in this recipe is unbelievable! And I definitely love crock pot recipes on busy days.

Hope you try and enjoy these!
