Friday Frenzy June 8

Summer is in full swing here. Not only are the temps very summer-like VBS signs are in pretty much every churchyard. My church has started their summer programs, starting with Cokes and ice cream on the lawn after Wednesday night service. It’s a great time to hang out with people you may not see often and meet new people. We go to a pretty big church with multiple services on Sunday so it’s hard to know every single person.

There are some pretty good things planned over the next few weeks for Cookin’ Mimi. I cannot wait to share all the tasty food I’ve been cooking.

Hi everyone! Rachel from Tramplingrose with this week’s Friday Frenzy picks. I dunno how it is where you are, but we’ve been stuck in a heat wave for what seems like forever. Not that I’m complaining, mind you – After all, we had winter for like 2 years, so the warmer weather is nice. However, I don’t want to heat up the house if I can avoid it. So I compiled a list a “beat the heat” foods.

Heat wave aside, I would be willing to fire up the stove for some Parmesan Chicken from Poinsettia Drive. Crispy, cheesy chicken topped with crisp greens and a lemon vinaigrette.

To go along with it, how about a cool pasta salad, like this one from Tumbleweed Contessa?

And, the recipe notes, the longer you can let it sit before serving, the better it’ll taste. Definitely make ahead food!

Finally, you can’t not have a cool, creamy dessert when it’s so hot – though I’m the kind of person who can/will eat ice cream all year long. The Saucy Southerner shared these Kahlua Fudgesicles, and they look amazing! Just a bit boozy for an adult treat, I’m thinking I’m going to be investing in some popsicle molds so I can make these ASAP!

Share how you’re beating the heat and drop a link below!

  1. Great party as usual. Thanks for featuring the pasta salad. How does this salad grow so large. I try to make just a little and end up with a lot. It is so good I like it!

    Have a great weekend!
