I have a new favorite dinner at local favorite chicken joint, Pies 'n' Thighs. Surprising as it may be, this doesn't involve pie.
My current favorite side dish is the watermelon salad, which includes cucumber and jalapeño. This is significantly different from how I like to make watermelon salad (with red onion, feta, and black olives), but it's light and refreshing.
The horchata is my beverage of choice this summer. It's cold and tasty and spiced, without being too sweet. I've had it at several restaurants, but the mixture at Pies 'n' Thighs is one of the best I've had.

I love it so much. This is currently my go-to comfort meal, y'all.
