What's Cookin' This Week!

This week at The Freshman Cook we are going hiking! Southern Nevada has so much beautiful scenery and it is a great place to live if you like the outdoor life. However, this time of year it is too too HOT to do much hiking outside. But we happen to have a gorgeous mountain area not too far away that is cool, refreshing and down right gorgeous. So, that's where we are going, and this is what we will be eating:

Appetizer: Homestyle Salsa w/ Baked Tortilla Chips
Salad: Very Berry Parfait
