This summer in The Little White Kitchen I've been doing my fair share of dancing but have been majorly slacking in the recipe creation department. There are a number of reasons for this, namely...
1. I have been out-of-town or preparing to be out-of-town for nearly half of the summer.
2. I have been sick with a relentless head cold (could I be developing allergies for the first time in my life?) for the other half of the summer.
3. I do not have air conditioning in my house and it is 87 degrees in the kitchen before I even begin thinking about cooking dinner.
4. I have three rowdy children home all day, every day, and barely have a moment to think straight let alone concoct a fancy meal plan.
So there you have it. It's been salad and pasta and BBQ and tacos for this family for the past nine weeks. Despite how much I love summer, there is a little part of me that is longing for the rhythm and routine that comes with the start of a new school year. And then there will surely be more scrumptious gluten and dairy-free recipes coming your way.
Until then, a diversion from the packing and unpacking, the heat and the utter chaos constantly unfolding on the premises.
