I invited the boys and me over to my inlaws tonight (nervy daughter-in-law!), and I had the idea to do summer appetizers. I took this very lovely photo of some of the food and wanted to share our menu and recipes. I'm stretching summer out as long as I can!
Tomato and mozzarella salad: cherry tomatoes (halved) and fresh mozzarella, tossed with half a dozen basil leaves from my inlaw's garden and olive oil. Served on grilled ciabatta bread.
Grilled shrimp: My FIL put Montreal seasoning on them, some of them with spicy Montreal, which was amazing.
Grilled sausage: I just used a Hillshire Farms smoked sausage. Eh. Could have done without.
Zucchini fritters: My MIL uses this recipe from Taste of Home to make them. They're light and fluffy and delightful. If you have extra zucchini in your garden, I highly recommend these.
Have a great rest of your weekend!
