for example, the baked oatmeal i wrote about recently was a happy pinterest discovery.
it's a fun and useful tool for me because i'm such a visual gal.
when i worked as a server in upscale restaurants, i could instantly memorize a complicated dish just by looking at it. however, if you gave me a menu which used only words to describe it, i struggled to recall the components.
well, it's summer and the visual splendor of pinterest has me falling in love with beautiful fresh combinations like this...
this recipe was so easy to make and full of really bright seasonal flavors.
it was a simple process: i grilled a few ears of corn, scooped out some ripe avocado chunks, and whipped up a lime-rice wine vinegar-olive oil-avocado dressing. combined with cherry tomatoes, cilantro, salt, and pepper, the result was a bowl full of incredibly vibrant summer tastiness.
based on this experience, i look forward to discovering more savory summer treats through the lovely food pins on pinterest.
of course, i would also love to hear about your favorite summer concoctions. any recipe recommendations for the innkeeper?
