Our spring and early summer was so cool this year, that we didn’t ‘officially’ open the pool until Memorial Day…and even then it was a little touch and go. We are typically well into 100 degrees by that point and this year, well the high was a cool 78. We proceeded with our typical Memorial Day plans, grilling poolside.
I tend to be a creature of habit and pull from my tried and true favorites, but this year, instead of the same ol’ same ol’ I made all new recipes. Four of them to be exact and they were all off the charts and immediately added to my stack of tried and true. I snapped pics of most of them, and thought I’d link them up for you here today.
Spinach Cucumber Strawberry Salad -- This salad was so good and so easy! Not a ton of chopping which made prep so easy!
Monkey Bread -- Scot found this recipe and it's a great weekend breakfast in the summer. We love it on lazy mornings and the best part is my older kids can make it on their own. #winning
Ranch Grilled Chicken -- With the weather so warm, I really try to avoid turning on my oven. I hunted around a bit for some easy marinades...really it was mostly in an effort to not got to the store, and I found some gems. We made the ranch one and I've got plans for the others as well.
Creamed Corn -- I love a good side dish but love an EASY good side dish even more. This was incredible on it's own, or to dip tortilla chips in. YUM.
Rolo Cookie Bar -- I've made the executive decision to make cookie bars more often, mostly because they are equally delicious but much less time consuming. This Rolo Cookie Bar whipped up in a snap and was devoured just as quick. This photo was before I added the cookie dough to the top.
Try them and let me know if you love them as much as me, just tag @amygregory.
With the weekend upon us, it's time for Open Houses! Do you guys love walking houses as much as me? Good. These links are for those of you that love walking houses as much as I do or are in the beginning stages of looking for a home. Use the links below to see the list of weekend open houses going on across the Valley. If you haven't used these links before, I break each list into different cities, then they are sorted by price, so you can find what you're looking for fairly quickly. Once you find a property you want to walk, click on the 'open house' tab at the top right to see the date & time of the open house...and be sure to let me know if you find a gem!

Hi, I'm Amy. When I'm not scouring the valley for the perfect new house, you can usually find me in the kitchen with a gaggle of kids. Chips, salsa and a Diet Coke are usually in hand.
