As a mother, it’s really important for me to have my kids help around the house, be responsible for certain things and help me in the kitchen when we’re making dinner. This summer, they have a list of household chores that they have been doing in order to make and save some money . . . although, if given the chance, they would surely spend all of it at Target in a second.
Helping me more with Cinnamon, our cat, folding laundry, making their beds, cleaning the play room, my youngest loves to Swiffer the floors (I don’t know why she loves doing this but I’m not going to stop her) and watering our herbs. We have two planters where we grow the herbs I use all the time: cilantro, parsley, thyme, rosemary, basil and mint. I think the fact that my kids helped me plant everything helped. They feel a sense of ownership and want to make sure that the herbs get water and sun to grow!
In the summer, we love to fire up the grill. We grill every weekend and sometimes, if it’s too hot to turn on the oven, we grill 2 to 3 times a week in the summer. Our favorite things to grill? All different kinds of meats and veggies and stone fruit!
And our favorite accompaniments to those grilled foods? Homemade chimichurri sauce, fruits, and almonds! My daughters go out and get all the herbs and we simply blend everything up in a food processor, add some apple cider vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper and we are set!
My kids and I love the smell of rosemary. It’s definitely one of our favorite herbs and so we love snacking on these Blue Diamond Crafted Gourmet Rosemary and Sea Salt almonds. They are roasted and garnished with rosemary and sea salt and go perfectly with the grilled flank steak, grilled vegetables and the chimichurri sauce!! They are so good!
The next time you and your family and friends are firing up the grill, I hope you can use this platter of food as inspiration, make some chimichurri sauce and pick up these Blue Diamond Crafted Gourmet Almonds! You are going to love them! Enjoy!
