Tarragon Balsamic Grilled Peaches and Vegetable Platter

It’s a fairly simple dish.

I like to keep food simple.

Simple is good.

Simple is just plain o’ simple and when you’re in a time crunch or you’re not in the mood to create a lavish dish, simple is just about all you need.

Especially when it’s summer.

And all you wanna do is soak up the sun.

Read a food magazine.

And sip on a freshly brewed iced tea.

Not spend hours slaving over your stove.

Just a few mere minutes next to your ol’ grill and you’re all set with this one.

Yes, you heard me correctly. A few minutes and you’ve gotta side dish that’ll knock your socks off.

    What a beautiful giveaway! I love the Paris and Vintage one. Stationary reminds me of old times…simple times indeed. Thank you for introducing us to a fabulous site!

    Simple meals – AMEN. I get exhausted just looking and reading recipes/blogs with extensive to-do’s or ingredients. But then I always get confused too…so many bloggers love to read about food, write about it, look at recipes – but then do just keep it simple with meals. So is it healthy to be so involved in food then? I don’t know anymore…
