Kale Superfood Salad

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!

    Ahhh, the blueberry and lemon cookies! They’re what brought me to your blog in the first place. And I’ve got to get me some Guinness for grown-up floats — mmmm! Happy summer eating (without cooking, whenever possible)!
