Summer is officially here in the south! Ok, yes I know that “officially” according to the calendar, summer doesn’t start until Saturday. But, we have had afternoon high temperatures in the mid to upper 90′s now for several weeks!! We are getting our classic afternoon thunderstorms (that last 5 minutes) and the humidity is on the rise. So I am sticking with my point that summer is here And with the weather steering us toward summertime, I wanted to steer myself toward foods that remind me of summer. Fresh, bright, lemony, comfort-food goodness that just makes you smile…and what can accomplish that feat you might ask? Well, chicken piccata of course! And if you make it a pasta dish that that can still be labeled “skinny,” this girl is grinning from ear to ear!!

I hope everyone’s summer is off to a good start! I just can’t believe that it is summer already!! Where has this year gone? It is totally flying by for me, how about you? Although I am certainly not complaining about it being summer. I love the warm weather, the fresh veggies and cranking up the gas grill (well…to be honest, we live in the south and pretty much use our gas grill all year long).
