Lately I have been CRAVING pasta salad hard. There’s something about a comforting and hearty bowl of pasta salad with fresh, juicy tomatoes that I’ve been loving. Plus, it’s super easy to whip together which makes pasta salad a double dose of exactly what I need in my life.
There is some mugginess happening, you guys. What gives?! I thought California was supposed to be all about that dry heat. You know, that anti-humidity, no frizz kinda life. Well apparently Cali decided to keep us on our toes.
Backyard bbqs are HAPPENING. It’s summer, you know the drill! And while most people are all like, “no, don’t bring anything,” it’s always a fun surprise when you show up with something delicious. Well wait, I suppose it could also be annoying to just randomly show up with an unexpected dish so maybe just double check it’s ok you bring something?
The unofficial start to summer is only a couple weeks away. Two things immediately come to mind. First, it’s grilling season, baby!! Second, fresh and crunchy salads are my jam. Lately? I want something refreshing with a sweet and tangy taste that has that, “I need to eat this entire plate and grab some seconds” urgency about it.
Today is so pretty out! I’m definitely busting out the shorts after a short winter hiatus. I used to think southern California was a shorts all year kind of place. I think for the most part, it can be. My salty east coast self would grumble from under my parka, “They don’t know cold.” But, after living here for almost a year, I have to say, this winter was a bit chilly!!
