Howdy true be-loggers, welcome to Sunday Leftovers! I am dedicating this blog to summer. The picture, music, video, and recipe are all summer related and there is no DIY because people should take a break! Since I have been in a pattern of posting a little note about my week (and it might be good for reflective purposes later), it was a heavy work week with not many interesting things going on in my personal life (besides my car needing a new battery - EXCITING!). I spent the last 48 hours trying to set up interesting new projects that should make for great content on the blog - fingers crossed that it comes through. This leads me to a simple message about change: embrace it. I had a long discussion with a friend last night that was torn up about a decision they needed to make. There is only upside to this change - sometimes leaving behind comfortable patterns is the best thing you can do for yourself and longtime health. Enough of the deep thoughts, lets open the fridge and see what is leftover!

[Recipe of the Week: Fire Roasted Corn Salsa]
Credit: No Recipes
3 ears sweet corn shucked
1/4 red bell pepper, minced
1/4 small red onion, minced
2 tablespoons minced cilantro
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano
1. Grill or broil the corn over high heat until it is speckled black on all sides, rotating each ear to make sure it roasts evenly.
2. Allow the corn to cool enough to handle. Use a sharp knife to remove the kernels of corn into a bowl, then add the bell pepper, red onion, cilantro, olive oil, lime juice, salt and dried oregano.
3. Stir to combine, taste for salt and adjust to taste.
It is memorial day, you should relax. Skipping the DIY this week.

Thank you for reading, but I hope you are doing it on a device that allows you to be outside, in the sun. Actually, if you are on the beach reading Sunday Leftovers, have someone take a picture and I will post it on the blog (or don't). I will be writing an article about a Virginia vineyard (if I can get motivated) this week for Drinking Made Easy. If you need to reach me, you can do so here. As always, don't take shit from anybody.
Smell You Later,
