Farro Salad with Cranberries, Feta, and Pecans - a great holiday side dish recipe! Farro tossed with dried cranberries, feta cheese, and pecans in a light lemony dressing.

Okay, I know it’s a little early to be thinking about Thanksgiving but I can’t help it. It was freezing last week in Texas and it got me all excited for the holidays and now we’re talking about Thanksgiving side dishes. 

If you want an easy, make ahead side dish option, this farro salad is perfect. The cranberries and pecans make it feel holiday-ish but it’s nice and light and healthy! 

Or, if you want to just make a batch for your lunches for the week, perfect for that too. Throw some grilled chicken on top to complete the meal!

Hi guys.

Happy Monday!

Kids are officially back from their summer trip.

My house is loud again.

Wanna know how I spent my last day of freedom?

I went to Trader Joe’s. Duh.

I currently have the cold that won’t go away and I told BF I was going to Urgent Care but I ended up in Austin because a poke bowl sounded better than Urgent Care. And since I was down there, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to stop into Trader Joe’s to see if they’d restocked cauliflower gnocchi (they had) and get some flowers for my kitchen.

I’m going to start this post by saying that my 6 and 8 year olds ate zucchini noodles for the first time because of this chicken.

Like, pulled it out of the fridge and asked if they could have it. For their after bath, pre-bedtime snack.

Yeah.

That sauce will change your life. Or at least change your opinion of zucchini noodles.

I mean, it’s got butter, heavy cream, and two kinds of cheeses so how can it not be delicious?!

Heeeeey guys, are you loving summer?!

I, as I am every summer, am in love.

I know everyone is complaining about how hot it is but this is what I live for.

I have the top off the Jeep, I’ve been hiking several times a week, my tan is looking amazing.

Why can’t it be summer all the time?

Just kidding, I live in central Texas. It IS summer all the time.

Except that one month last year when the Jeep’s window zipper was broken. That month was cold.

Very cold.

We are officially two days away from one of the biggest grilling holidays. How excited are you? Hopefully as excited as I am.

We’ve already talked about how much I love the 4th of July but what I haven’t told you is that I’m approaching the holiday with a game plan. Because I have s’mores on my brain and I cannot even wait to roast a million marshmallows over the grill and then smush them in between graham crackers with all sorts of chocolate.

The best.
