The one downside to summer babies (of which I have two) is that I cannot enjoy the heat and all the summer fun the way I want to. A few I stayed home while the rest of my family went on a boat ride and ended up over to the Vineyard. Today, instead of being at the beach, I am inside in the AC while I watch the world have fun in the sun.
Next year, child - we will be at the beach every second of every heat wave! Even though in my experience 1 year olds don't love the beach. He'll have to adapt quickly.
I made this Pioneer Woman pasta salad recipe this past weekend. I didn't have any parsely though, so I skipped that step. I didn't miss it. I enjoy pasta salad that does NOT have a mayo based dressing, and this one was ab fab! One does get a little sick of the Italian dressing after awhile, but I admit I had my doubts about lemon juice and oil (oh, I don't every have EVOO in the house. waste. of. money. I used regular and it was fine). I should learn never to doubt the Pioneer Woman though. And she didn't even put butter in this recipe!
I forgot to put it in a bowl before transporting it to the party, so it ended up being served in a meat marinator (this one -you know, the one that everyone and literally their mother has)
Nothing says class like serving pasta salad in a container that's designated for raw meat.
