garden season

last weekend my children returned from their 2 week stint with the grandparents in new york. We had intended on hopping over to the city for Renegade Brooklyn but a 6 hour drive for a day trip ended up not being our top priority.
I use those two weeks to reground myself, inspire, and reset. I was crazy busy with work but luckily I love my work.
We utilized our awesome back yard during a tremendously relaxing fathers day. I whipped this amazing Quinoa salad out of a great salad recipe book I picked up for $5.

full of sun dried tomatoes, olives, scallions, feta and chock full of basil and cilantro from my garden.
and a homemade dressing to match made with lemon juice, sun dried tomato oil left overs, garlic, and a few scrapings of the herbs.

If I could live in my backyard I would.
