It’s Friday! I have never been so happy to see a Friday for a long time. What a week it’s been, between work, the blog, and adulting in general, I’ve been under one hell of a time crunch.

So, if you’re at all having the week that I’ve had, you’ll really appreciate today’s healthy recipe which is fabulous for those hot, busy summer days when I definitely do not want to cook! I did my shopping for todays healthy inspiration at Sam’s Club, which by the way, is only the second time I’ve actually been to one and it’s amazing!
