What I Ate: Habanero Hot Sauce

Our garden did really well this year and we had loads of habanero peppers. I decided I had to make habanero hot sauce because I hadn't made it in three years and I had a big craving for it. I made some small adjustments to the recipe - I used a full orange pepper and omitted the carrot, mostly because I forgot the carrot - and it turned out just as delicious as I remember it.
I actually made this over Labor Day weekend and I decided to serve it with some fajitas. I marinated some ribeye steak and slapped in on the grill. It was delicious.

What I Ate: Nutella Pancakes

I tried that Pinterest trick where you freeze little circles of Nutella and drop them into your pancakes on the griddle.
Technically, it worked. But I'm such a Nutella fiend, I think I'd still like to spread more on top. But I held back. Instead we topped our stacks with a little maple whipped cream.

Grilled Peach Salad

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I'm not in denial about summer coming to a close. How could I when there's a certain chill in the air in the mornings and walking my dog in the evenings is much more bearable in this crisper air. But, while there's still summer produce in the markets, I'm going to continue to take advantage of it.

Last weekend, we got a big box of white peaches that smelled incredible and tasted great. I wanted to incorporate some into our dinner, which I was preparing on the grill, so I decided I would make a big, gorgeous salad and make the peaches the star.
Ingredients [serves 2 as a main, 4 as a side]:
1 peach
3 cups baby greens
1 baby cucumber, sliced
½ bell pepper, chopped
¼ red onion, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons pepitas (or nuts of your choice)
3 tablespoons golden raisins
2 tablespoons feta cheese
1 slice thick cut bacon, cooked and chopped
1 cup short cut pasta, cooked
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
+ salt & pepper

*This salad can certainly be customized with ingredients that you love.
**I didn't make a recipe page for this post since it's just as simple as assembling the ingredients in a bowl.
