With the last days of summer upon us, I cant help but hold on to this delicious corn cob with a kung fu grip. Waiting 6+ months for delicious ripe peaches, heirloom tomatoes, and all the produce that summer brings can get a little depressing to us fab foodies. With fall literally just a few days away, lets inhale this summery recipe roundup as long as we can... Here are 8 Meals To Help Enjoy The Last Days of Summer
|Breathe in fabulousness...Breathe out fabulousness...|
Ive been bouncing this idea around in my head for a few on whether or not I should write personal posts for Fab Lifestyle Fridays. Eating Fabulously is continuing to change day by day along with myself and my thoughts, which brought me to this.
With constantly working on new ways to make Eating Fabulously shiny and new (and being present at work) I have hit the 5 yr mark on blogging. Yay us! Recently, I have begun to feel myself searching for inspiration..something new.. a spark of fabulousness. On Twitter, on Instagram, through friends and magazines. In that search I began reading other blogs and we all have a few things in common..
Life gets stale and we need breaks from life.
We are all searching for inspiration
Blogging is hard!
I believe my inspiration came to a halt when my family and I suffered 2 detrimental deaths all in the same year recently. No one ever tells you the after math of death, and I will admit this has added to my lack of inspiration. So with lack and drive battling inside of you at the same time, a constant "search" kicks in. Finding inspiration (when all you want to do is nap) is well, hard.
For starters, I went back to the roots, the beginning stages of where I started with Eating Fabulously, which I found 5yrs ago in the pages of Fabulosity: What It Is and How To Get It by Kimora Lee Simmons. This book was detrimental to the initial start of Eating Fab and I went back in it to get that same push that I had the first time I read it.
Another slight nudge was knowing that fall is coming and with fall brings new restaurants, food trends, and of course new posts! I would love to know how and where you guys find new inspiration, so please leave a comment below.
Where do you go to find new inspiration?

What snacks do you like to eat during football season?
While working at the restaurant, this salad came to life during a hot summer behind a burner. Summer screams grilling and you can honestly put anything on the grill. From desserts, to oysters to lettuce, summer and grilling just go together. Not only can this salad be brought at your local farmers market, it can vary using seasonal ingredients. This is one of my favorite salads because it has everything I love in one salad and I love the sweetness of the brown sugar vinaigrette. Its also quick and easy and if you don't have a grill near, don't panic! This salad is equally fabulous with non-grilled peaches.
