Ripe For The Pickin’

I’ve got plums. Tons of plums.

My friend Sena has plum trees in her backyard and I went to town picking at the ripe, juicy fruits. I have never picked plums straight from the tree.

It was a lot of fun picking them. Some of the fruits were so ripe that only a slight touch was needed and they rolled onto my hands.

It was so much fun. I need to find ways to pick my own fruits more often.

I left with a whole bag of plums and the search for plum recipes has begun.

Naturally, my breakfast this morning was filled with plums.

Last night , our friends came over for dinner for fish taco night at our house. Chris prepped the fish because that is his specialty.

I chopped all the toppings and played sous chef.

While we prepped dinner, we snacked on lime chips that was sent to me from the folks at Food Should Taste Good.

I love the hint of lime on these chips. It’s flavorful, full of crunch and made with all natural ingredients.

Our friends Tom and Caroline brought over delicious appetizers, chips and dips.

The best one was the guacamole with roasted corn and jalapenos. It packed flavor in each bite.

We created a taco bar and assembled our fish tacos.

Mine was like a fish burrito with a side of beans. Fresh fish is the best. I went back for seconds.
