Spanish Tapas-Style Shrimp and Chorizo

Serve with brown rice and sautéed green beans-

One day I will get to Spain, but in the meantime I can recreate some of my favorite tapas recipes that I love from local tapas restaurants. Shrimp and chorizo is one of them and my adaptation has become a family favorite, especially enjoyed outdoors on our patio on a balmy summer evening.

End-of-Summer Shrimp and Green Bean Salad

Serve with skillet cornbread-

For most of us, the beginning of September marks a transition to a new season, even though temperature-wise it may still feel like summer. Our kids are back in school, most of the local summer fruit and vegetables easily found at most farmer’s markets are starting to dwindle, and we start to feel more grounded. What I love most about this recipe, besides being so darn good, is that it transitions our taste buds from summer’s abundance (the green beans and basil) to fall and winter’s sustaining comfort foods (cornbread). Transition and change is a good thing!

Tuna Nicoise Salad

Serve with whole grain bread-

I love spring for the warmer weather and spring blossoms, and I am so ready for lighter food, such as salads. Tuna Nicoise is more a meal than a salad, but it is the perfect spring dinner, needing nothing more than a great loaf of fresh bread.
