Last night, while at my grandmother’s impromptu BBQ, I couldn’t stop talking about how good the guacamole was. What was the big deal? She looked at me and said, “Seriously!? It’s just fresh squeezed lemon!”
Sometimes I need to remind myself to appreciate the simple things. Just a hefty squeeze of a lemon and the right amount of salt can turn guacamole into the most amazing thing I ate that day. When something is done right, I never get tired of it. When you focus on simple but bold flavors, you literally do not need anything else.
Summer is slipping through our fingers. Instead of making that complicated, multi-step dish you wanted to try, just squeeze a little lemon on your protein, salad, or even on a dessert like a pound cake, and enjoy that simple satisfaction.
