Turn Me On Tuesday

This is my second week doing this feature. It's all about sharing what gets you fired you up at the moment. Do tell.

Here's what I got for ya...

summer meal - tomato and watermelon salad
It sounds random but it is actually quite good. It's light and refreshing and super easy to prepare.

5 cups (3/4-inch) seeded watermelon cubes
1 1/2 pounds ripe tomatoes, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
3 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 small red onion, quartered and thinly sliced
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Cracked black pepper to taste

Just combine watermelon and tomatoes in a large bowl; sprinkle with sugar and salt, tossing to coat. Let stand 15 minutes. Stir in onion, vinegar, and oil. Cover and chill 2 hours. Sprinkle with cracked black pepper to taste.

outting: My girls and I are going to see a local band on Friday called the Vagabond Brothers. We discovered them at this venue with an outdoor patio, picnic tables, beer and amazing scenery. Here are some pictures from last month. Can't wait to do it again!

something, shiny and new: This one is super easy. My new kicks. They are magic shoes that will make me run faster than I ever imagined. I just know it. ;)
