The Perfect Sunday Lunch

image6.jpegimage5image8image1

Today I hosted girl’s lunch for my lovely mom and grandma. Since my grandma has never seen my new place I thought sometime in the summer would be ideal!

And it so happened to be today!

She was born and raised on a farm so she will thrilled to hear I was moving on one. Although she had every animal under the sun on hers, she was still excited to see some of the horses on the property! She and I are a lot a like in many, many ways. I’ve always felt this deep connection with her. She lived with us my whole life and basically raised my brother and I along with my mom and dad.

So today I thought I’d share with you guys what was on the menu for this very girly lunch. I was thinking something light, summery, doesn’t take a lot of work and effort to make and most importantly, delicious! OH, and gluten-free, but you guys should know that by now lol.

First on the menu is cucumber sandwiches, I thought these would be the perfect main dish for a very hot day! I was so nervous making them! In pictures they look so hard to create but overall the filling of these sandwiches was simple and a big hit! I’ve linked the recipe here. I usually get all my recipes from Pinterest or from my family. Tip: Make them just before you serve them, that way they don’t get soggy from the cucumber.

Second on the menu is watermelon salad! I wanted a side dish that would compliment the cucumber sandwiches well and didn’t have any lettuce since my grandma isn’t able to eat it. Don’t worry granny, I got you! There really is no recipe for watermelon salad, my dad has made it all throughout my life so I just went by his rules. However I did find one that is basically the exact same recipe as the one I made. Freakin’ delish!

Next I did a cheese board, with GF crackers and regular crackers. I have found a few good gluten free crackers over the years that are quite tasty. I’ll link them here and here. I did a spread on my wood cutting board which I got from Homesense a few months back. I’ve linked a similar one you can get at Amazon, I love this look!

Then I’ll get some chips (kettle are my families favourite). A fresh cherry pie from our local farmers market (made fresh daily) and you can’t have a girls lunch without some sweet tea. Look at me being all country lol.

And there you have it, that is our lunch menu for today! I hope it made all your mouths water, because it sure did for me! And as always, thanks for stopping by!
