Yummy recipe

Happy Monday! We had a fun and productive weekend {those two things don't always go together, ya know}. On Saturday we played in the yard and then my mom watched Malayna on Sunday so Jimmy and I could finish up some home projects. He cut the baseboards and trim for our new kitchen floor and I weeded, painted and moved some plants around. It felt so good to be outside ALL DAY and not have to worry about Malayna. Thank you, mom!

Here's a yummy summer recipe for you to enjoy. Remember when I tried to be a vegetarian for about six months? I asked around for some vegetarian recipes, and my friend Kerry sent me some great ones. This recipe involves a lot of chopping, but no cooking. Enjoy!
