Of course, we kicked off the week with our family Fourth of July celebration!  We have our whole family over for food, fun and fireworks.  The Fourth is also my Dad’s birthday… so Happy Birthday Dad!

Two days later I got to have a group of friends over for a great girls night. We do this once a month and every month has a food theme… this month was salads for summertime!  I made this super yummy Greek Chicken Salad.  You can find the recipe HERE… click it, do it, do it… you’ll thank me!!!

I am starting to get a few veggies out of my garden!  I have been researching recipes to make with kale, and I have my basil hanging to dry.  I tried this recipe for cheesy kale crisps… you can find it HERE, and I am dying to try this soup made with kale… you can find it HERE.  Yum!

So, do you all have any diet tips for those of us who struggle with snacking?  I am really pretty good about controlling my portion size and eating decent meals, but it is always the snacks that bring me down.  I am a grazer!  Help!

This week on the blog, I talked about a new favorite lipstick and one of my favorite blogs for inspiring makeup tutorials.  Don’t forget to check back Monday for my review of my new 2017 planner!
