Vacationing on the Gulf Coast with my husband’s family often includes evenings spent in the beach house kitchen, with one or more of us preparing a meal for all 11 family members. Though it may sound like a chore, we enjoy cooking and having meal time together. Sure we like to eat out, too, but it can be difficult with such a large group. And somehow making dinner is much more enjoyable at the beach when you’re not feeling rushed after a long day at work and children’s extracurricular activities.
Tonight was no different. My sister-in-law made three delicious homemade pizzas – one cheese, one veggie and one sausage. I’d bought the ingredients to make a recipe I recently discovered on Pinterest, a cucumber pineapple salad, so I made it and it turned out to be a nice complement for the pizza.
This cool and refreshing salad would make a good snack after you’ve been out on the beach, too. Take advantage of the fresh fruits and vegetables of the season and try the Cucumber Salad Recipe with Pineapple and Cilantro featured on the Reluctant Entertainer blog.
