Some Yummy Summer Eats

First up is Dianne's Southwestern Cornbread Salad: What a delicious meal this salad made, and the Little ones dug right in as well! I was amazed at how much Nathan scarfed in. Click on the picture for the recipe!

Next up is Blackberry Cobbler. Delicious!!

Moist, but not soggy, sweet, but not overly so, delectably yummy. A MUST try.

And, last, but not least, Walnut-Olive Burgers.

Mike thinks these are hands down, the best burgers he's had. They are simple to make and incredibly delicious. Here's the recipe:

1 c. black pitted olives

1/4 c. water

1 c. chopped walnuts

2 1/2 c. reg. rolled oats

1 c. finely chopped onion

1 t. salt

1 T. soy sauce

1/2 t. sage

1/2 t. thyme

1/4 t. marjoram

1/2 t. garlic powder

1/2 t. onion powder

1 c. walnuts

1 3/4 c. water

Blend first 2 ingredients on high until smooth. Pour into bowl and add next 10 ingredients. Mix together. Blend last 2 ingredients on high until creamy. Add to bowl and stir everything together well. Let sit for 15 minuts for oats to absorb liquid. Using 1/3 c. portions, place on oiled cookie sheet and form into burgers. Bake at 350* for 20 on each side.

Oops! can't forget the Watermelon Popcicles! Just blend some seedless watermelon with a bit of water and pour into popcicle molds for a cold summer treat that you and your kids are bound to enjoy!
