Summer Love

We’ve had a busy month, I can’t believe July is almost over.  Hubby returned from a cross-country motorcycle trip to Yellowstone and had a great time.  I took a short work trip to the Florida Gulf coast that was productive, bummer that the weather didn’t cooperate however. 
Last week we also welcomed a new member to the family, Sydney! 
 We saw some doggies we liked at the SISCA website and went to visit.  SISCA is a great organization for rescuing pound dogs in the Dayton area, we heard great things about them.  We saw Sydney in her cage and got to take her outside and interact with her.  She is a 4 years old Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog mix with an Australian Sheppard.  She is well trained, knows how to sit, lay, shake paw and speak already.  She is learning to love her kennel, and spends most of the day there when we are at work.  She also loves going on a run, watching Netflix and cuddling on the couch 🙂  Currently she is licking my hand as I try to type this..ah, I just want to squeeeze her!
Anyways…I’ve been maintaining my clean eating, taking some detours every now and then.  I’m enjoying my oatmeal breakfast each morning, made a new version with a couple banana slices, walnuts and flax seeds and soy milk–taste like fresh baked banana bread!  I am also trying to eat a healthy, satisfying vegetarian meal once a week.  I grilled a big batch of veggies the other night and have enjoyed them on pita as pizza, or in a burrito with fresh mozzarella, basil and balsamic vinegar.  I grilled up slices of eggplant, zucchini, portabella mushrooms and bell peppers, so good!

I’m also looking for any suggestions as to use up cucumbers!  I have three cucumber plants that are producing out the wazooo!  I’ve been eating slices of cucs for lunch, adding some to water with lemon and lime slices to make spa water.  Also thinking of refrigerator pickling or canning some…
Hope everyone is having a great summer and keeping cool, I know we can’t complain too much, but Ohio has had some 90 plus days, and we are glad to see it go!
