We made it to July! Independence Day is traditionally the point at which I manage to briefly convince myself that summer is half over, even though in reality it is more like 10% once you factor in weighted temperatures/ennui. But it gives me a nice little burst of delusional energy regardless, enough to power through one last proper Martha v. Rachael June battle. To the barbecue sauces!
Rachael's entry: Barbecue Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Cornbread Croutons.
|This was not especially exciting or nutritious, but it WAS very easy and worked out to like $2/serving.|
Martha's entry: Salmon with Spicy Mango Barbecue Sauce.
|This was good, but I thought the flavor of the mango got a little lost. Also the guy at HEB teased me for only buying one habanero pepper because Texan grocers are hardcore.|
Winner: all of us, because summer is half over, haven't you heard?
Anyway, I hope everyone enjoys the holiday weekend. Don't blow off any fingers. May your chores be ignored and your impulsive self-haircuts be expressive.
