there are days during the summer that i don’t have time to think about dinner.

we tend to move from one project/place to another with incredible speed…

we laugh about our possible super powers, how fast we are, my son times us. my daughter laughs. we can get from here to there rather quickly. he however, he always beats us.

we stop what we are doing around 5 and run home, drop our bags…someone screams out what they want, we all wash our hands and get to work…

picking out veg, fruits, herbs. i send them into the garden to go pick things. anything, we figure it out as we go along.

chopping, cutting, slicing, dicing.

days like these i throw stuff in a bowl and call it dinner. serve it with rice, a roll, a tortilla. it’s our favorite.

simple. easy, and if you bbq the shrimp. whoa.
