It is reminscent of two of my favorite treats: the wonderful chocolate dipped fresh pineapple and strawberries Morrow's offered on saturday morning at the mall and pie.
Pineapple is my ultimate topping because we don't get good fresh pineapples very often in Oklahoma. Strawberry is my next favorite topping. Blueberries and cherries are good toppings but not as spectacular as the other two. Talon prefers his topless or maybe with banana. The whole point was to get him to eat more fruit but I'm the one eating more fruit!
Did I mention the best part? It is low-cal! Yes, I repeat: Low-cal!!
One graham cracker sheet has about 65 calories. A thin layer of nutella (approx. 2 teaspoons) has about 65 calories and the fruit calories are minimal. Amazing since it tastes so rich and decadent! I typically eat one but splurging on two certainly won't break the bank! Pin It

Here is a video of Talon incorporating some clogging footwork into his routine.
Talon is a funny dancer from way back. At age 1, he would close his eyes and sway his head and body in a groovy fashion--- just like an adult might do when hearing a favorite song. At age 2, Talon would say: Watch this move! He gave his moves silly names but some made sense like 'spinback' or 'kick up'. Talon still creates moves and names them.
I really don't know where this tendency comes from except that his Miller grandparents were exceptional dancers.

This pan bagnat is delicious too and I'll definitely prepare it again-- maybe varying the veggies and meat.
As yummy as this one is, I still prefer the traditional tuna pan bagnat. Jim won't commit either way yet. Pin It

One of the culinary highlights of summer at our house is fresh tomato salsa. Scrumptious for chip dipping! Also, the perfect topping for black bean tostadas, breakfast burritos, quesadillas, tacos, fajitas or wraps. Sometimes we even eat it as gazpacho-- which is really what it actually is, after all.
Fresh tomatoes, peppers, garlic, onion, lime, cilantro, and salt--- What could be better...
