The summer is such a weird food time. Weird, but good. I find myself not really wanting to eat meals so much as wanting to gnaw on pieces of steak or other protein and raw vegetables. It’s a simpler time, I guess. Like, caveman simple. I was researching gluten free summer foods and came across a recipe for Crispy Coconut Chicken Nuggets. So, I tried it. Naturally.
These little nuggets came out delicious! They were easy to make, although I do find frying things to be tedious work. I’m sort of a multi-tasker and when you are frying, you really ought to only do one thing at a time. Cause, ya know, fires. I found this amazing recipe from Num’s The Word, which is my new favorite blog name.
I like this nugget size food because it is so easy to transport. I could pop these in a plastic cup and bring them to the ball field and munch on them. Or, I could add a few to a salad. Watch for an upcoming post on summer food, where I explain why you should be making salads in large, lidded coffee cups and taking them to the beach. Best thing ever. That’s an exaggeration. Salads in coffee cups can’t compete with espresso fudge. But, as far as healthy beach going fare, salads in coffee cups are pretty darn awesome.
Speaking of summer, this one is shaping up to be one of the best yet for my family! We have already had a couple of weekend trips, including one to Old Orchard Beach, ME. The beach there is truly spectacular.
And we still have our annual trip to Lake Winnipesaukee to look forward to. We’ll be spending one long, full week there and I’m excited to relax and stare at the lake for several days. In between visits to Fun Spot. If you want to read more about Lake Winni, you can check out this post.
