Watermelon and Arugula Salad

If you're looking for a salad that has something salty, something sweet, and something peppery, this salad is for you.


I missed my window, didn't I?

You've all moved on. You're not interested in summer salads anymore... You'd rather focus on pumpkin spice. And whatever food goes with sweater weather.

As with most posts on this blog, I started drafting this post months ago. And I had every intention of sharing this recipe for Watermelon and Arugula Salad right away... When there was still time to enjoy all that fresh watermelon available at the markets.

But then we went on a mini-vacation and things took off at work... And well, here we are.

On the off chance you're still eating watermelon, try this salad inspired by Ina Garten... (Because, apparently, we both feel the same way about watermelon salads!)

I have been staring at a blinking cursor for a while now. Partly because I don't know what I want to write about in this week's intro to our menu plan... and partly because we started watching this show from the beginning again.

I had forgotten how easy it is to get sucked into the story! Ridiculous as it may be.

Rather than write about something frivolous, I'm just going to leave it at that... So, without further ado, here's what I've planned for dinner at our house this week.

Also... stay tuned! I'll be sharing a new recipe on the blog on Tuesday!

Reminders about Connecticut's tax-free week. First-day-of-school photos. Ads for pumpkin spice everything.

It's official -- summer is winding down and many folks are already shifting their focus to all things fall. Meanwhile, our family is determined to enjoy every last bit of summer. We're heading to the beach next week... and I'm still sharing summertime content here on Taste As You Go.

Though, many of you told me on Facebook that you don't just drink iced tea during the summer. Many of you said that you like drinking iced tea all year round... So maybe I'm ahead of the game this time?

At any rate... I've enlisted the help of my fellow food bloggers to put together this round-up of 20 Refreshing Iced Teas. If you're curious to see which recipes made the cut, then keep reading!

(Oh, and if you're more of an iced coffee drinker, don't worry... I've got you covered!)

How's the weather where you are?

Right now, in our little corner of Connecticut, the weather is glorious. We went to bed last night and the temps were in the 50s. Perfect sleeping weather... especially with the windows open.

When we drove to brunch at one of our favorite local places this morning, the sun was out and the temps were in the low 70s. We were lucky enough to snag a table outside on the patio. Being outside with the kids helped me enjoy the moment more... Why? Because I wasn't as worried about preventing them from disturbing other diners.

(Parents, you know what I'm talking about, right?)

Now we're all enjoying sitting on the back deck before lunch. Monty is laying in the sun... Stephen and I are working in silence (for the most part)... And the kids are creating crayon masterpieces at their picnic table.

Seriously, the weather is so lovely, I know I'm going to hate going inside later to prep for dinner... While I see how long I can stay out here, why don't you check out what I've planned for dinner at our house this week?
