Grilled Red Snapper topped with a Roasted Red Pepper and Charred Tomato Relish for a light and fresh 30 Minute meal perfect for summer!
I had this thought the other day when I was upstairs playing Legos with Cason.
I have this summer with him and then he goes to school … for the next 22 years! You can find me sobbing in the corner!
Already this summer feels like it’s going by so fast. Before I know it, it will be time to go “back to school” shopping and then my baby will be in kindergarten. How did that happen so fast? I’m not ready for it! What am I going to do during the day? I’m so use to having him around all the time.
Then I had this thought of, have I spent as much time with him as I can. Have I truly taken advantage of him being home and me being home with him? Insert all the mom guilt… which we all know is a lie but is there none the less.
What a blessing it’s been to be a stay at home mom. To play ninjas, power rangers, or TMNT with my son – trying to find the bad guy or protect the fort. To build lincoln log villages with him, forts made out of couch cushions and blankets and putting together lego everything! I have loved being home for every step. I can still remember how excited I was when he finally figured out to put the square peg in the square hole or when he put together his first puzzle. Now he’s writing his name and beating me at UNO.
I know that August is going to be a huge change for both of us. So until then I’m going to soak up every moment I have with him… starting with diving into our new pool. 🙂
Speaking of summer. How are things coming on the grilling front. Have you been grilling almost every day!?
Well, I’m gonna give you yet another grilling recipe that I think you’re going to love! It’s grilled snapper topped with a roasted red pepper and charred tomato relish that you’ll die for.
The snapper has a nice smokiness to it from the grill and flakes off perfectly and the compliment of the fresh charred tomato relish will blow your taste buds away! As you can tell, the relish was my favorite part. Almost everything in here is grilled. The sweet tomatoes, the red pepper and the shallots. Then it is tossed with a little bit of white balsamic vinegar and fresh basil! Much! Perfection. I know you’re gonna love it. Plus it just looks like a show stopper!
Bon Appetit friends!
