Quick, before summer’s over, I have one more summery salad recipe for you. Well, I guess for most of America summer ended about 2 months ago, but not here in Florida. We are still experiencing 85-90 degree temperatures on the reg.
We did have a cool snap this past weekend with temperatures dipping into the 70s, it was glorious. I was able to wear Hadley around outside without sweating my bum off. We went for a walk downtown, got some ice cream, went down to the park on the water, it was such a beautiful day. But then Sunday came and we were back to our normal, hot, humid temperatures. Oh well, we savor those cool days when we get them.
Since it’s been hot I have spent the rest of my week inside. Shopping, cuddling, cooking when I get a chance, and shopping some more.
Quick and easy has been the theme for dinners around here. Hadley really likes to be held, pretty much 24/7 so if I’m not up for wearing her around the kitchen, dinner has to be something I can whip up quickly while Hagin entertains her.
Salads are pretty quick, healthy, and this one was especially delicious. Even Hagin who isn’t really a fan of shrimp enjoyed it. It was the buffalo sauce that sold him. The man loves buffalo anything.
