Is summer on it's way?

Hows everyone doing this week? Is summer on the way? Please tell me it is! I'm really longing for those nice warm days in light clothing. Yesterday was a lovely day, bright and sunny with a little more warmth but today felt more wintery again. Sigh, bit of a teaser really.
Anyway onto tastier topics - salads. I love salads and the more exotic the better. A plain old green salad with vinegarette is delicious but i love something more substantial for a main meal. Last night we tried out a new combination - corn, salami, peppers and kumara on spinach leaves. I added a squeeze of lemon juice and a yoghurt dressing on the side. It was a very nice change and had enough substance to please the other half. Always a bonus, even the baby gave his a nibble before creating a small reject pile of peppers. Seems they weren't on the agenda!

I'm also trying to keep up with my organised housewife challenge. I got off to a late start and i've been breaking up some of the bigger days tasks so i'm not spending too much extra time cleaning. But it feels great to be plodding along and making progress with the spring cleaning. Tomorrow i'm finishing up day 6 -bathroom and starting on day 7 -the fridge.

This is my little man helping tidy up the pantry last week. His part of the job was to eat anything he could find in not so well sealed containers.

By the time summer comes around my house will be well and truly cleaned up and i will be ready with a new repertiore of salads.

Hope you're all having a great week.
