Open-faced Pineapple Turkey Summer Slider

It’s Monday, and it seems like your socks need to be rocked.

 Drop your glasses, shake your asses

Face screwed up like you having hot flashes

Which one, pick one, this one, classic

 … *gasp* bad words

Also, that song will now be in my head all day … I’ll be strolling down the street , yelling Eve at the top of my lungs.

 That’s some classy stuff right thhhuuurr.

I annoy myself … on the constant. True story. 

I like it when my food looks pretty, I feel like it’s half the battle.

Especially these days, I’m trying to eat healthy and I know that healthy doesn’t have to taste or look like cardboard but sometimes it can get boring. A woman can only drink so many smoothies, and eat so many kale / spinach salads.

 I’m on a new sweet-salty-savory combo kick these days. And pretty – when life fails, get pretty.

 And then I made this pish-posh meal. It looks fancy pants, but is a breeze – that’s the good stuff. Wow your tummy and guest by making it seem like you got all Haute and bothered, when actually you’ve been sipping margaritas with your feet in the pool all day.

 I actually had no intention of writing about this recipe, therefore I have little to no pictures, but then I tasted it.

And it would be wrong ( and probably a little greedy) if I didn’t sprinkle some sum-sum-summaaa time in your life.

Annoyed. I know. Sorry.
