Oh my, we've been having the most fantastic summer so far, and it's only just begun. Every weekend is filled with family get-togethers or a wedding or a birthday or a graduation party or a shower...I'm sure you understand as it seems to be the case for everyone we know. But this is why I love summer.
This evening we had Brad's family over for his dad's birthday. Brad got to show off his grilling skills and made delicious orange barbecue marinated pork chops & potatoes, while I stayed busy inside making an edamame corn salad, hummus & crostini, and a coffee cocoa birthday cake (which I'll share with you later this week). We had a wonderful time relaxing and catching up with each other; the perfect way to end a weekend.
Edamame Corn Salad
4 1/2 C shelled edamame
