Love, Your Mama.
Yes, I have a toddler who doesn’t sleep through the night. This sweet child of mine has flat out NEVER slept what us adults would consider well. The heat, changes in our daily routine, teeth, and extra hours of daylight have, of late, made for a few long long nights.
It doesn’t help that wake up time for him is somewhere right around 6 am regardless of when he falls asleep. Sigh.
So as I have mentioned before (on this salad post) lunch around here is usually quick, heavy on the veg, and eaten while the toddler naps and I catch up on facebook. And coffee. Lots of coffee.
Before you tell me to go nap you should know I have already taken one today. And yesterday. And the day before.
All I can say is I can’t wait till he is a teenager and I have to drag him out of bed in the morning. It will be poetic justice.
On another note I love salads and believe they are perfect summer food. Well salads and barbecuing. You don’t have to stand over a hot stove. Fresh veggies are at the peak of the season. Salads don’t tend to give you a bogged down too full feeling.
All around yum.
I feel silly actually writing a recipe out for this. Feel free to adapt as you see fit. I bet it would be lovely with goat cheese too if that is your thing.
