Summer Weekend Recipes

Here are two recipes that will treat you right this summer weekend. Enjoy a perfect, mouth-watering mix of watermelon, heirloom tomatoes and feta cheese (trust us it’s delicious) while picnicking this Saturday. Then wake up late to a delectable summer brunch of vegetable and cheese frittata.

It looks like it is going to be a good weekend!

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. “Frittata” is just such a wonderful word!
    BILL: What are you doing, Bob?”
    BOB: Just doing some FRITTATA!
    BILL: That’s a nice FRITATA! man.
    BOB: You want some of my FRITTATA!?
    BILL: Nah, I got my own FRITTATA! with peanuts.

  2. Frittata just kind of sounds snobby to me.
    “Sorry darling, but that’s m-y-y-y-y frittata. Looking at this food has made me very hungry.
    I think I’ll try the heirloom tomato and watermelon salad.

  3. Sounds like a tasty diet, but whenever I eat more than 300-400 calories of fat a day, I GAIN weight. I’m a guy, but I’ll bet there are women for whom this is true also. I eat low fat but with almost no junk carbs, and I’m 8-9% body fat (and fairly muscular).

    Frankly, I’d worry about all the animal fat you’re eating. Not because of the saturated fat, but because of the dioxins, PCB’s and other organochlorine poisons that they contain. We’ve screwed our environment so badly that our ocean fish are contaminated with mercury and our land animals (and fresh-water fish) are contaminated with dioxins. Fresh-water fish are the most contaminated foods, butter is next, followed by meats and then vegetable foods. Look it up and cry.
