Sunday = Funday and Some Yummy Recipes!!!

Is Chloe bear adorable or what!?!? She has her summer scarf on!

Today started with the usual laundry (BLAH), coupon clipping, and grocery shopping UNTIL 
I stumbled upon an amazing blog recipe at MUNCHKIN MUNCHIES!!!

Strawberry Lemonade Scones Drizzled with Lemon Curd
(I mean....the name says it all...TDF!!!)

Tim was out golfing so I figured this evening I would make a light dinner followed by this heavenly deliciousness!

For dinner I made a spring mix salad with beets, olives, and feta. I then made our dressing with lemons, olive oil and dill weed. This is our FAVORITE summer salad!
Oh how I love the colors!
We're primarily vegetarian so I cooked up some veggie Big Franks. I was hungry so I had to take a little nibble. Looking at the pic, not sure why I couldn't wait! haha!

So now for the dessert........Promise, it's not hard.

I found a recipe for Lemon Curd at :

Then this morning I found the Strawberry Lemonade Scones recipe over at Munchkin Munchies:

For both the lemon curd and the scones, I used fresh lemons (Oh how I L.O.V.E. fresh lemons!!!).
Um, how GINORMOUS are those strawberries!?!?! 
Sooooo Good!!!

Heavenly deliciousness ready for the oven!

Here's what they will look like when you pull them out of the oven. Flaky on the outside and moist on the inside. Sue's at Munchkin Munchies are much prettier, but I will give them another shot FOR SURE!!! This recipe is now a staple in our home!

Now my "drizzle" wasn't nearly as pretty as Munchkin Munchies, but it tasted soooo good!
I added a scoop of vanilla ice cream to each plate. 

This was the PERFECT Florida evening breeze dessert on the patio! I'm pretty sure it's going to be the perfect breakfast in the morning too with my cup of warm (aka coffee)! LOL
Here's a little fun sidebar! Look at these cute limes! These are the first fruits from our key lime tree on the patio!!! So fun! They are really small, but smell sooo good! Can't wait for them to be normal size. 
Little Key Lime buds....precious little green stars!

Reiners keepin cool in Florida

Thanks for the shout out! Your scones look FABULOUS, Erika! Isn't homemade lemon curd the crowning touch? Looks like next on your agenda will be lime curd:) Your key limes are so cute!
