I think I can officially say that the Dog Days of Summer are upon us. Its flipping hot out, and after a brief glance at The Weather Channel, I am pretty sure everyone is hot. This is the part of the summer that I enjoy the least, when its 9am and 90 Degrees out. YUCK. It’s even too hot to play in the pool and water table outside (its in direct sunlight until about 6:00, but even then its too hot out). We are starting to get a little cabin fever here, especially after watching the USA trials for mens gymnastics team, haha, which ended with Ladybug running, “jumping” (her feet don’t leave the ground yet), twirling and climbing over every surface of the living room.

This time of year, you really can’t ask for a better meal than this. Quick to put together (its mostly chopping) and quick to cook, this is perfect for busy and hot nights alike. The fun and unusual combination of grapes and oranges in the salsa gives this a unique twist that really works amazingly well together! We loved every bite of this, and will definitely be making it again this summer!
