Post image for Super Simple Summer Supper Solutions: Lemon Dill Compound Butter Recipe

It is officially Summer 2016.

It is also officially crazy herb growing season in our garden (you do recall the annual garden of the past right?).

We may have an abundance of herbs, but like you, we do not have an abundance of time, or patience, for making lengthy dinner recipes in the heat.

Therefore, I present the Super Simple Summer Supper Solutions series. Clever eh?

First up, I present to you, a simple idea to make an easy compound butter that you can toss on any baked fish, chicken or even vegetable, and then you have a tasty, quick and easy summer dish!

In fact, tonight, I tossed some on salmon, baked it for 30 minutes, tossed another pat on top and served with a salad. Very little effort but lots of flavor.

Family Fun with Dr. Eureka

Did you know I am a Science nerd? No really, I have a degree in Science and work in the clinical research field.

This means anything related to Science excites me. Therefore, when I was asked if my family wanted to try the game Dr. Eureka, I was intrigued.

The premise of the game basically a game of speed and logic. See, the brilliant Dr. Eureka “has important experiments for you to complete”.

Each person has three test tubes and six colorful balls. You pick a challenge card from the pile and have to create the scientific formula by carefully moving the balls from tube to tube without dropping them. The balls , in each test tube needs to match what is shown on the challenge card – who ever completes first, wins.

The game states for ages over six, but I think your child should be a bit older or may get frustrated as this is a hands-on, dexterity-based, brainteaser type of game.

Disclosure: The game was provided for my family to use and then share on opinions.

During spring break week, we were invited to attend a press tour where we would experience Rhode Island’s Kid-Friendly attractions. The first stop was the Biomes Marine Biology Center.
