Summertime, and the Eating is easy…
We are almost there, the season of fresh vegetables, bright vinaigrettes, and new seasonal menus. Nothing gets this foodies lips moving faster than good eats, with fresh ingredients at one of my favorite restaurants. I know you thought I was going to say my own kitchen and backyard, but that’s not the answer today!
Ditch the grill and patio and instead dress in your favorite outfit, and grab your keys, it’s time for a cuisine experience where each bite provides a forkful of flavor. Summer is about grabbing a bite, and a few cocktails, chatting, eating and enjoying the day and friends. Summer lets us just indulge in the simple things like a dish that transforms the everyday into a work of art.
A summertime menu featuring the freshest seasonal ingredients should include baby kale, watermelon, radishes, avocados, cucumbers, bean sprouts, strawberries and more! While you may not be traveling this summer, let your food choices be global. Who’s ready to lavishly live food out loud and find out where a summertime menu featuring the freshest seasonal ingredients is?

One of my favorite eateries is California Pizza Kitchen. I don’t eat meat, my son has food allergies and the menu conquers something for everyone in my home. No matter the food we dine on, there are always tastes I can describe but you have to try it to believe how fresh it is.
