Hi-de-hooo my foodie friends! I am coming to you from sunny HOT Western Washington, where we all are pretty sure we are going to melt before this heat wave is done! 90+ degrees, 85 (or more) in my house because of course nobody here has AC. I mean when your summer is, on average, 24 days, really? Why bother. Then a summer like this comes, everyone hits Home Depot, and 100+air conditioners are gone in a matter of minutes! It was like the Cabbage Patch Dolls rush in the 80's (I am sure a lot of you have no idea what that was), or the crazy stuff that happens when a new version of X-Box comes out. People pushing, shoving, holy cow you would think it was the apocalypse or something. Which of course it isn't because I have not seen one zombie.

Pomodoro Fresco Pasta Salad #SundaySupper

Pomodoro Fresco Pasta Salad - Made with Fresh tomatoes and herbs, this is a fresh and light pasta salad that is the perfect side for any picnic or BBQ. Major plus...NO MAYO!

Howdy y'all! How was your 4th of July? It has been so dang hot here. 90 degrees is just not was we are used to in Washington! So we had a quiet day, just the two of us. BBQed for lunch, relaxed, then packed a picnic and hit the beach for some fireworks. Nice, easy, safe, and fun. 

One of the things we packed for our little outing was this Fresh Tomato Pasta Salad. Folks, I am obsessed with this pasta salad right now. Seriously, I have it bad! I have gone through 3 pounds of pasta in the last couple of weeks!! It is A) super simple to make, and  B) so light and tasty. Lately I am all about some fresh tomatoes. I can't seem to get enough. I have been making was seems like gallons of Salsa Fresca and putting it on everything, especially my eggs in the morning, and Pico de Gallo has been going on grilled chicken, steak, and even burgers. Do you get obsessed with seasonal fruits and veggies? I am almost as bad with corn!! Ohhh ya!

Oh hellooooo and Happy Thursday my darling foodies! 

Why am I in such a good mood? Well, I will tell you. Today I get to babysit the G-baby for the first time! Wooohoooo Nana and the beastie together for the whole day! I am so excited, and the time is going soooooo slowwwwww. I have been up since 4:30 AM and 9:45 seems like a million light years from now *sigh* I know, patience, patience. I am not so good at patience. I am the one that wants to give everyone their Christmas presents early because I can't wait to see their face when they open it. My kids always knew they would get to open at least one gift early.
