I don’t know about you guys, but here in North Carolina, we are starting to FEEL the heat!

Today especially! Hello 90’s, I wasn’t expecting you for another month but that’s cool. I actually am loving the warmer weather. I’m trying to embrace the heat we have now because I know that in a about month we’ll have the humidity to go along with it!

So with the warmer temperatures, I’ve been going back through the archives, looking for recipes to cool off! So long hot soups – hello cool salads!

Any big Cinco de Mayo plans?

Durham has a ton of YUMMY Mexican Restaurants, including Dos Perros, where I’m hoping to convince Parrish to take me for lunch!

I’m off to the gym (YMCA) before work. I can’t believe that next week is my last week at work. AHHHHHHHHHH!!!
