Do you feel like the summer has just flown by so far? I do my best to soak up each day but I feel like it was just May and now August is almost here! We have busy with all things work, house and baby prep but it’s all so wonderful. I haven’t had as much time to focus on preparing recipes, which isn’t my favorite because most times, I would rather be in the kitchen than doing anything else.
We have made some great progress on the house renovations so hopefully soon we will be starting on the KITCHEN! I can not wait! I’ve been cooking in the 1960’s kitchen and will be so thrilled to have a space that represents me and I feel great in. In the meantime, I’ve been making quick summer recipes that are filled with farmer’s market produce. I have been thinking about salads a lot recently so this week I was inspired to make this Barley and Arugula Salad which turned out to be so good. It’s super simple and can be made ahead of time but packs in flavor.
I’ll certainly keep you updated on all the happenings around here! I certainly hope you enjoy this salad. Don’t forget to soak up all of these beautiful summer days, they won’t stick around forever!
