Easiest Summer Salad Ever!


Seriously! 1 can of chick peas – rinsed well 1 can of black beans – rinsed well 1 bunch of cilantro – chopped 4 large roasted red peppers – diced Toss together! Told you it was easy! Cook your own beans if you choose, healthier, but canned is still faster than the drive thru. Watch the ingredients on your roasted red peppers (peppers, water, vinegar, salt, sugar nothing more). You may choose a little less cilantro to start. I love it (used to hate it!) It is so beautifully aromatic. This bunch was from our CSA, so wonderful. Season as you choose, maybe a little red wine vinegar or balsamic. Maybe some fresh lemon. Or just enjoy it as is. It will keep in the fridge for a few days and tastes even better the second day I find 🙂


Working on Some Summer Memories

Heading to the drive-in with the hubby and girls. Off to see the minions!

Apple’s, rice crackers, cashews, water and greens juice all packed for snacks. But it’s a slow transition for our kids some days so there’s a chocolate bar each and some cookies as well.

Hoping the rain holds off and we get a few slides in at the playground before it all gets started. What kind of summer memories are you making?
