First Salad of the Season

Sunny and 78!

That's what is was here today.  That's what I request when I put my order in for the summer.  I didn't even mind driving around all afternoon.  Music lessons, Farmer's Market, Sander's Farm, Produce Depot, bank & the post office.  I even had time to make it home and plant a few more pepper plants and do some weeding. 

While we were out I got a special treat from Produce Depot.  Rice Milk Limeade.

Just what a sunny 78 degree day deserves!  Dinner was simple and I even heard the boys claim great dinner mom.  Though I was scared for a moment it wasn't going to be enough.

Our first baby spinach & baby romaine salad from the garden with dried cranberries, almonds, Asian dressing and fresh grated Parmesan. Chickpeas and coconut rice. 

What have you gotten out of the garden or at the Farmer's Market this season?  Share!

That salad looks beautiful! The first day of June brought 54F and rain for Seattle. Oh well, at least we don't have to pay for air conditioning!

I do buy dry beans and make them and I DO think they are different. They aren't mushy and they have a taste ;)
