Don't laugh. I daresay that the Skinnygirl 'Rita is my official cocktail of summer 2011. I bought them because margaritas have always been a favorite summer beverage of mine, and because I love my Bethenny; I wasn't expecting much, but I should have known better! They are affordable ($12/bottle at our local store, whereas stocking the bar to make a proper 'rita from scratch would cost maybe four times that), easy (pour over ice), so drinkable (perhaps too drinkable... buyer beware... despite the girly packaging these are LEGIT cocktails and should be treated as such), and best of all, only 37 calories a glass. Cheers, Bethenny! And thank you.

Every Sunday, the husband grills up a storm. And every Sunday, I load him up with huge plates of veggies that have nothing to do with our dinner, and he grills them to perfection. I let them cool, put them in tupperwares, and every weekday I make myself a phenomenal salad for lunch, filled with things like grilled zucchini, grilled corn, and even grilled leeks. With some mixed greens, cherry tomatoes and a sprinkle of feta or perhaps some chopped baked tofu, these salads fill me up and energize me for the rest of the busy day. A salad for lunch is nothing special, but tasty grilled ingredients elevate these to gourmet status. Try it!

Other things I love...
spending whole mornings outside at the playground with the little man, grilling three nights a week, waking up to sunshine, magical iced coffee (haven't tried it yet??? do it now! this stuff is the elixir of the gods), thunderstorms, and J.P. Licks Oreo low-fat frozen yogurt.
What are you loving this summer?
