The Lazy Days of Summer
Summer? No, it's April. Then why is it 88°? Oh, yeah, it's California. That's why bears are walking around in shorts, flip flops and sunglasses, and that's why cubs are playing in sprinklers on their front lawns.
A great snack on a hot day is fruit salad. I went to the farmer's market and the grocery store to pick the perfect fruits. I bought fresh cantaloupe, red apples, bananas, pineapple, and strawberries. I washed it all, chopped it up and made a delicious treat.
For lunch, I made a pasta dish. I used rotini noodles and mixed them with olive oil, asparagus, and vegan sausage. What a healthful, satisfying meal.
It was a beautiful day, I only hope it doesn't get hotter than this come summer.
