Creamy Pesto and Garlic Scape Potato Salad

Ahhh... potato salad. A staple at any family bbq/picnic. I don't know about you, but when I think about potato salad, I think of KFC, grocery store sides, Mom's recipe with chunks of celery, and a whole whack of mayo. Bring back memories? Ohhh yaaa. Actually not that many for me since I do not particularly like chunks of celery in anything. So I typically stayed away from it... or picked the celery out (my mom hated that!)

New Food Challenge #4: Garlic Scapes

We have all heard of garlic (well I hope at least). But has anyone heard of garlic scapes? Not me, not until this summer I have not. Well guess what, they are the flowering stalk that comes FROM garlic. Ever leave garlic on the counter to long and a weird green looking stem starts to grow out of it? Yep, garlic scape. And they are edible! And delicious at that.

Grilled Eggplant, Tomato and Basil Salad

Its hot. Wicked hot. So unbelievably hot that I have barely left my bedroom in 2 days because I have a tiny little air conditioner jammed in the window.

My one bedroom apartment has begun to melt. The doors won't close properly because the wood has expanded due to the humidity, the floors have begun to sweat. Whether to open or close the windows is in constant debate.

The thought of turning on my oven, or even a burner on the stove top just makes me sweat. Last night I went to Subway for dinner just so I can sit in an air conditioned building for half an hour.

But I can't live off Subway (Well ya I could, Jared did it).

Which leads me to -  salads and bbq.
