Omg, happy Friday! Wow, so I’ve seriously been cursing the heavens trying to get this post up since last night! I spent most of the day yesterday on the phone with the cable company in an attempt to get a minor internet connection issue resolved…much to my dismay, after THREE HOURS, I was told someone would have to come out today and take a look. Luckily, in my four-hour window (gah, how I hate that), he came sooner rather than later! And?
Well, three CHEERS for the internet fixy man and one WTF-I-HATE-YOU for the city who decided it would be a good idea to sever my cable while digging around the water lines the other day!
Ok, so now that THAT’S settled (and I’ve had my brief little b!tch moment), let’s FINALLY get on to the strange BUT good action!
It seems I’ve been having a quite the summer romance with basil. I mean, first there was Berry Bruschetta, then there was the herb-spiked grilled cheese, and of course this week’s Peach, Raspberry & Basil shenanigans. It seemed only natural for my little herb-crush to turn a little more
serious SALACIOUS! 😉
What started out as a moment of sweet and savory FOREPLAY…
Quickly transformed into an all out MOUTHGASM!
I’ll have you all know I’m resisting the urge to comment more on the fact that those happen to be CHERRY tomatoes! 😉
Mouthgasm: (noun) The physical and emotional sensation experienced during peak flavor sensation, usually resulting from stimulation by eating something wonderful, and usually accompanied by a moan of pleasure.
Thank you Urban Dictionary for that little bit of enlightenment…oh and for helping me understand what the heck twerking finally is! 😀

- 2 large handfuls of chopped fresh kale

- 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
- 1/3 cup sliced cucumbers

- 1/2 avocado, sliced
- 2 Tablespoons roughly chopped basil
- 1 Tablespoon hemp seeds
1. Combine/layer all ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Toss with your favorite balsamic dressing.
I drizzled this baby with my favorite balsamic dressing using blueberry jam, then added another level of sensation with my latest obsessions, nutty, crunchy hemp seeds!
Let’s just say after I finished taking about 37562 pictures of it (give or take a few), that bowl and I did a little more than spoon. 😉
Now do me a favor and go make this salad…twerking may be optional (because that shit is dangerous!), but the moaning and fanning yourself, as you will see, is NOT! 😉
What is your favorite fresh herb?
What’s the last thing you tasted that was utterly mouthgasmic?
