Welcome to Foodie Friday. I am on a little summer blog break... but the party must go on!
My co-host Adelina from Home Maid Simple and I have noticed that there are a few Friday parties with the name Foodie Friday. We don't want you to confuse our comments and shares with other parties, so we are planning to change our name and would love your suggestions.
Please leave Friday food party name ideas in the comment section.

We don't grill much at my house, primarily because we are not big meat eaters...though grilled vegetables are very tasty too. But, my brother was coming to visit and I wanted to make something special. My daughter and I are not big fans of beef, so I thought grilled pork would be a terrific idea.

Slow Cooked Tuna Mediterranean Style: Tuna Confit with Black Olive Tapenade & Tomato Salsa #French Fridays with Dorie
My father always wanted his own boat because he loved to go ocean fishing. He didn't live long enough to fulfill his dream, but he did get to go fishing on other people's boats.
