Summer Kale Salad with Blueberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Summer Kale Salad with Blueberry Balsamic Vinaigrette (The Gingered Whisk)

So when does school start again?

I’m loving all this fantastic summer weather we are having, taking my kids on hikes at the lake, to the zoo, to the fair, to the playground, and just playing outside.

But guys, I’m ready for school. I’m ready for scheduled naps. I’m ready for a tiny bit of quiet alone time in the day. For a few seconds where I’m not chasing after a part-mountain goat baby or playing dinosaurs or cleaning up messes. Where I can maybe put away the laundry that’s been siting on my bedroom floor (clean and folded) for 3 days. Or finish unpacking the few boxes that got shoved into the guest room and haven’t been touched. Or maybe finish the book I’ve been reading for 2 months now. Or, how about actually update this blog once in a while?

Yup, I am loving summer. But I am getting ready for fall, too. But before it comes, I want to grab onto a little bit of summer produce while I still can! And this summer is the peak of perfection! Its super quick to pull together, delicious and satisfying!
