I know I said that my Strawberry & Avocado Salad with Salmon was Summer, but so is this one! Ripe peaches, tomatoes and corn off the cob...pretty much Summer if you ask me. I think I'll designate the Strawberry & Salmon salad as my main dish summer salad and this one as my side dish summer salad. Deal? Although technically you could throw some Salmon on this and it would make a darn good main dish salad too.

I wanted to get you guys ready for your Fourth of July BBQ's with some Mac & Cheese. And apparently this Mac & Cheese to prep you for July 4th is becoming an annual event, last year I tee'd you up with Serrano Spinach Mac & Cheese.
I loved this roasted garlic and sriracha version, those are two things that are almost as dear to my heart as macaroni and cheese!
I hope everyone has a fun time celebrating 'Merica!
Before we get into my absolutely favorite broccoli (it tastes like candy), I know I've been MIA. I was busy relaxing and enjoying some vacation time in Hawaii.
This trip will definitely get its own travel post, but I can't tell you how nice it was to have an entire week off of work. It had been way too long. I will be inundating you with pictures from our exploring, relaxing, eating and drinking our way through the Big Island in another post. So back to the broccoli for now!
Are you in awe? I just put before you a giant bowl of white rice! Don't worry, while a vat of white rice would excite Mr. KMW, I wouldn't do that to you guys. This rice has some flavor! It was a perfect side to the carnitas I posted earlier this week, and would really work well with any Mexican dinner.
My sister in law's secret?
I threw this together on a whim one night as I needed a side for grilled steak, and had a spaghetti squash sitting on my counter.
It turned out delicious and was addicting. I love it when that happens, when I just throw something together with ingredients I have on hand, and it results in a recipe that I will be repeating...over, and over. This could definitely work for a main dish too. You could either have it as a veggie main dish, or mix some grilled or roasted chicken in if you wanted some meat.
Cooking the squash in the oven takes awhile, but it's hands off, and after the squash is cooked this recipe is super quick and easy. You could also always microwave it for a shortcut, like I did with this Spaghetti Squash with Scallops in Cream Sauce or my Baked Spaghetti Squash with Turkey Sausage.
