The weather has been amazing; so, we managed to get the spring garden planted! Yay!
You can tell the temperature is starting to rise around here. Slowly but surely my menu will include more and more salads and grilled foods and fewer and fewer long cooked meals. When summertime comes, don’t be surprised to see a big salad topped with grilled chicken breast on the menu a couple of days in a week. Pasta salads will replace spaghetti and the grill will replace my oven and stove top as much as possible. We eat a lot of fruit and drink a lot of smoothies and sweet tea in the summertime. It’s just too hot to want anything else! So, I’ll be on the lookout for more good hot-weather recipes.
