Grilled fruits and veggies put into my salad, at dinner or the next day at work.

I just discovered paletas, Mexican ice pops with delicious chunks of fruit, nuts, cookies, etc. in them. So good! So many flavors! So refreshing! And they're cheap too!

EAT ALL THE PALETAS OM NOM NOM

Ok, now I want one, or two, or three!

Sounds really good. I tend to like rich decadent ice cream, but do they come in ice cream flavors with nuts, chocolate too?

Why am I hungry? I should be still stuffed from dinner...

Oh Plush Kitty you are getting to me!

Yes, paletas come in all sorts of flavors! Fruit, nuts, chocolate, caramel, Oreo cookies, hibiscus, something called chongos that's a sweetened cheese-type thing. I've only had a fruit one called guanabana (soursop in English) so far, but I have to try all of them now. Guanabana tastes a lot like cherimoya if you've had that before. Sweet and mildly tart with a creamy texture and a sort of pineapple-banana-ish flavor. I liked it quite a bit, it did have the seeds still in it though. Brought a Latina friend and she said that's normal for fruit paletas. ("Anna, I found this awesome Mexican ice cream place but not all of the menu items have an English translation! Come with me and translate stuff and I'll buy you ice cream!")

My TJ's Fairy brings me goodies when she visits and for my birthday she brought Onion Salt.... and it is wonderful. Great flavor, and not that kinda weird toasted but kinda bitter onion salt flavor that you would get in those giant containers. I make all my own salad dressing and it is great with a little basalmic and EVOO

I know, right? You know I'm not big on oniony things, but this is really good! For something dried I feel like I can still say it tastes fresh. Lol

Overnight oats.

I didn't think I would like cold oatmeal, but I'm really enjoying it in the mornings while the weather is so hot.
Me too! My current recipe is to use toasted rolled oats (TJ's sells them) they have a better texture. About 1/3 - 1/2 cup of them (diabetic, have to watch the carbs), whole milk, a little half and half, a pinch of cinnamon, some splenda, and a dash of vanilla bean paste. I also usually stir some blackberries in, or perhaps raspberries. It tastes a lot like melted vanilla ice cream with oatmeal cookies and berries.

This sounds crazy, but I'm constantly craving onions. Publix sells big delicious sweet onions already sliced, and it takes just a few minutes in the pan to caramelize them. Add two eggs and a dab of A1 and it's heaven on a plate.
