Snickers Salad

This is my kind of salad.

Snickers Salad

6 large granny smith apples
lemon juice
12 snickers bars
2 C. heavy cream, sweetened and whipped
1/2 C. chopped peanuts
1/2 C. caramel sauce

Chop apples and toss with a few T. lemon juice. Chop snickers bars into pieces the same size as the apples. Toss apples and snickers with whipped cream. Top with nuts and drizzle with caramel. You'll be the most popular person at the potluck. :)

Cucumber water

This recipe is for the most advanced chef, do not attempt unless you have had years of training in Paris. (just jokin)

Maren and I first tried this water at a spa a couple summers ago- it was refreshing and delicious. I was recently reminded of it at This Week for Dinner. This sounds especially good today- these past couple weeks have been too hot to think.

Cucumber Water

sliced cucumber

Combine. Drink.

A quick "Did-you-know" before this week's menu...

Did you know that tomatoes do not belong in the fridge? They don't. Their flavor and texture is best preserved on the countertop at room temp. Thought you'd want to know.

Sun- Chicken Cobb salad, fresh fruit, garlic bread, peach/blueberry cobbler and whipped cream
T- T.J.'s orange chicken, rice and broccoli
W- skillet mac n cheese, glazed carrots

Sat- BBQ at Amanda's parent's home
