Fourth of July was such a blast this weekend. It’s one of my favorite holidays because of the sunshine, festive outfits and carefree celebration. I spent the weekend at the pool jamming to Spotify’s “Throwback Dance Party” playlist and mingling with new friends. We made refreshing gin and tonics with lots of lime and snacked on nachos. To make them I warmed up the frozen ground turkey you saw on my Snapchat story the other day (follow me @ gourmetgab), sprinkled it over tortilla chips with shredded cheese, microwaved the dish for 30 seconds and drizzled hot sauce on top. Next time I’m taking them a step up by adding veggies or cilantro!
The beautiful weather is already making me crave another pool day this upcoming week. Although Fourth of July somewhat marks the middle of summer, I’m thinking optimistically about another month or two of sunny weather and cool water. Here are a few things I want to add to my Saturday pool routine.
1 // This donut float is all the rage right now. I want to be “that girl” who brings it to the pool.
2 // I love getting a new towel every summer. This color and pattern would compliment any swimsuit.
3 // If you know me, you know Beyoncé is my main girl. This koozie is just too great.
4 // Make your mixed drink in this styling tumbler – golden just like your tan.
5 // Coolers do not have to be boring. This Lilly one screams summer vibes.
6 // No glass at the pool does not have to mean no wine at the pool. Try these shatterproof tumblers.
The countdown until the weekend begins again today. We can do it. Happy Monday!
Love food. Love self. Love life.
