Beach Bum

If you are new to "the club", please note that we are currently cooking the recipes of (or inspired or adapted from) Rick Bayless.  Please DO NOT link up a post that fits the theme but does NOT have anything to do with Rick.  We are a chef/cook-based cooking club, therefore we explore the food, recipes, and techniques of our featured chef/cook.  Thank you for understanding.

We are on the final stretch of cooking with Rick.  Can you believe we've already been hanging out with him for more than 4 months!?  And on that note, it's time to vote for who we want to cook with after September 30th.  It's the ladies turn, and we have a poll up in the top of the sidebar - please take a second to click on your choice.  Who do you want our next featured cook/chef to be?

And now on to the theme for this week - Beach Bum

Think foods and drinks that you would like to have in front of you while you're hanging out in the sand and surf.  Or perhaps something inspired by the beach...maybe fish or seafood.  It could be little snacks that you can grab by the fistful before leaving your towel.  It could be bright, gorgeous, juicy tropical fruit that drips down your chin.  Maybe it's something light and cooling...or refreshing.  Maybe it's a good ol' cocktail.

You tell us!
Make and post your Beach Bum post by Sunday, August 19th. Don't forget to link your post of the week's with Mr. Linky below, so we can all enjoy your fabulous creation! Remember to leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.

If you missed the Feel the Heat! theme last week, be sure to head on over and see all of the delicious dishes everyone brought!  Don't forget, we're cooking through the recipes of Rick Bayless right if you've linked up, be sure that you've used/adapted one of his recipes for your post!

I took the easy route this week and made some simple fresh limeade. Thirst-quenching for a warm beachy day. ;-)
