A delicious summer salad...

Yesterday was hot here. I love hot...when I can spend all day in a bathing suit, by the creek, with a book. I like it less when I have to go places in my truck (with no air conditioning) or walk around in normal clothes that soon become a little damp. On top of it, my apartment has blown up with my attempts to pack for the summer-bleh. A little ray of sunshine amidst all my complaining is the salad I made for lunch yesterday. It truly brightened my day. I cooked some sprouted wheat parpadelle on the stove. Meanwhile, I opened a can of tuna packed in olive oil (SO much better than the water packed stuff!) and dropped it in a bowl with half a squeezed lemon, fresh parsley, sundried tomatoes, a minced garlic clove, chopped celery, salt, pepper, and cayenne. When the pasta was done, I drained it and sprinkled some cold water over them (but not rinsed completely) and them tossed them in the bowl with the tuna mixture. In my serving bowl, I laid down a couple handfuls of organic baby spinach and some sunflower sprouts-then I piled the tuna pasta salad on top. With a glass of iced green tea I was reenergized to finish my long list of to-dos. I was even able to enjoy some the weather in the park downtown. It's probably a good thing I'm heading North soon though!

I live in Dallas. Despite the fact that you can find nearly
20,000 more males within this town than females, this
figure is a little bit deceptive. There is
a high quantity of homosexual males, in addition to immigrant
employees, who skew the quantities. All of the places around the listing appear to become huge metropolitan areas that almost certainly have similar forms of
populations. If you're just hunting to get a excellent place to party then it is excellent. If you are looking for a boyfriend or partner, you will be dissatisfied.

Being a kid I was so frightened of pressure cookers and would not
even enter the kitchen whilst that issue was in use,possibly,just perhaps you've helped me get more than the fear of ever utilizing a single but,on second thoughts,I'll stick with checking what is happening in the pot!

. This is genius. Quit controlling the kids and create a climate in?

which they can understand.
