Thinking thoughts.

Let me spill my thoughts.

Summer thoughts.

Thoughts about how I’ve been wearing the same white and blue striped Gap shorts for the past 3 weeks, simply because they are the most comfortable pair of shorts on the face of the planet.

Real talk here, people.

One summer I wore the same brown gladiator sandals every single day.

I thought my mother was going to come unglued.

I swear she had something to do with their magical disappearance.

Oh, and then coincidentally bought me a new pair of bedazzled rhinestone flip-flops w/ a flower in the center.

Yep, I’m thinking that was a devious plan.

Y’all, I tried on my bikinis yesterday just to make sure they still fit.

Oh, and that they were still cute.

Duh.

Plus, I’m going on two vacations in the next two weeks and I just might be getting some sun.

I wish we could have summer food year round.

I mean summer fruit: see watermelon, peaches, blueberries, nectarines, etc. just aren’t the same if they are eaten outside of the summer.

I’m pretty sure I slurped an entire cups worth of watermelon juice out of the plastic container that my watermelon was sitting in yesterday.

Then, I totally looked around the kitchen as though someone was home and just might be watching me.

Truly hysterical.

Truth is…

I’ve been dreaming up this crisp recipe in my head for over a week!

Then, yesterday morning I had a breakdown, slapped everything together, and

bada-bing…instant crisp gratification.

This is all about the peach-blueberry smash bang!

Then the topping…

IMG_2506

well, it’s all about the crispity crunch of all things coconut.

It’s a combo of coconut flour, olive oil, stevia, cinnamon, vanilla, and flaky shredded coconut.

It serves two…but really in this case, two serve one because duh…no significant other here :)

More for me :)

Oh, plus they are gluten-free, vegan, paleo, and refined sugar-free.

Seems to be a trend lately.
