There is just something about the frigid cold of winter that makes me forget about the stickiness of summer. I spend the winter dreaming of summer. Then summer comes and I’m cranky and sticky and stuck to anything I sit on.
But I do have to say that overall I love summer. The days seem endless and people just seem happier overall. But I am definitely not running to my kitchen to turn on that hot stove. Some days I just can’t get myself to do it. Huge salads are perfect for those days. Simple, delicious, refreshing, and so healthy!
