We are in the process of getting ready for our next summer event, our annual family reunion. We are lucky in that it is not technically out-of-town for us, but it still takes us away from our home for a few days. So, all of the travel prep still needs to be done – clean house, buy groceries to take with us, wash sheets, pack. Yes, I clean house and wash sheets before we travel. I like to come home to a clean, organized house so that I can start fresh with the unpacking, laundry, etc.
We get an added little bonus at the reunion this year. My sweet sister-in-law is expecting a baby, my first nephew, so we are having a baby shower while we are there. I am in charge of the dessert bar. The desserts will not be gluten-free. But, I am baking special treats for my sweet gluten-free boy so that he will not miss out on anything. And, since we are in this together, I will be joining him with the gluten-free sweets. I just now discovered Gluten-Free Girl last night, and I am so excited to try some of her treats. I love her passion for food and for making sure that a gluten-free world is still a tasty one.
Today we went to several stores, one of which is one of my favorite places to buy produce. It is a farmer’s market grocery store, and their produce prices are excellent. We picked up a little bit of everything, mostly so that we would have fruit for breakfast and vegetables for our pizza night and some pico de gallo for snacking.
Since I am not preparing any new recipes today, I wanted to share the pico de gallo recipe that we love. I am sure that this is a similar recipe to one that you prepare for your family. It is a little spicy for the littles, but Sean and I love it. Oddly enough…I do not like tomatoes….except in pico de gallo.
