Looking for a creative weeknight dinner that's bold on flavor and light on the waist? Boom. Grilled Summer Vegetable Flatbread with Blueberry, Bacon, and Lemon Ricotta.
I always thought I was a pretty productive person. Full time teacher. Running this blog. And of course staying busy with all things related to co-owning a wedding photography studio. But man. I gotta tell you. This baby. She's helping me take my productivity to a whole new level.
A full day to accomplish one or two things is now replaced with hurry up and get it done while the baby napping. But oh wait... Olivia has decided not to nap. Or she decided to just close her eyes for like 10 minutes. Ohhhhhh daddy, you had a plan for today? Well I just called an audible. Welcome to parenthood.
Luckily I have an amazing wife that gives me time every day to get some work done. Asheley, you're awesome. And an awesome wife deserves someone to cook up dinner for her. Quickly, of course, considering we have a very tiny window to eat in between nursing, burping, changing, crying, and all the other unexpected joys of having a newborn 🙂
Thankfully this time of year, the grill is always open for business and summer produce is rocking. Boom. Instant kick-donkey dinner... Grilled Summer Vegetable Flatbread with Blueberry, Bacon, and Lemon Ricotta.
So if you are thinking... Chris, this sounds amazing except for the blueberries, you need to just trust me already and try it. I've been adding blueberries to savory dishes a bunch lately, and it's pretty darn extraordinary. I learned the tip after having an amazing pasta dish with corn and blueberry at Flour + Water in San Francisco a few years ago. It was magical.
And sure, you could make this vegetarian by leaving out the bacon... but no. Bacon is amazing. Case in point, check out this meme.
I always judge the quality of a meal by how much Asheley leaves on the plate. She is pretty consistent with leaving a little bit on the plate usually... but when it's licked clean, I know I hit on a gem of a recipe. Well, winner winner
