Hi guys! We’re still doing summer food, right?

I keep getting emails about back to school shopping, my kid’s school is sending me vaccination reminders, and Bath and Body Works put their fall candles out.

Did I order 7 Sweater Weather candles? Maybe. But that doesn’t mean I’m okay with us acting like fall is right around the corner. We still have months of summer!

My kids are OBSESSED with this Cole Slaw Pasta Salad. The first time I made it I was worried there were too many veggies plus, you know, raw onion isn’t something kids usually like, but they loved it. I sent my mom a video of my younger 2 literally trying to steal bites out of the mixing bowl.

Hi guys!

This is our first full week of summer break and after a crazy last month of soccer, 7-on-7, exams, giant projects, and school events that required me to put actual clothes on… I’m so happy it’s summer. 

My children have finally listened to my request to make friends with someone with a pool so we’ve been there every day for the last week. We’ve ordered pizza more times than I want to admit. I don’t remember the last time I got in my car.

I love summer. 

I also love this pasta salad that I’m sharing today! It’s everything you love about pepperoni pizza in a cold pasta salad and it’s perfect for all your summer barbecues or parties or just making and keeping in the fridge on days when you don’t feel like standing over a stove.

Whyyy? Why does the weather do this to me? Yesterday I laid in the sun while my kids played in the sprinkler after school and today? I’m cold.

COLD.

What is this?! Texas, get it together!

Anyway, the brief moments of hot weather have me really looking forward to summer! And swimming! And beaching! And most importantly, grilling!
