With temperatures over 100 degrees every day this past week, the last thing I’ve been wanting to do is cook. Fresh, summer produce all the way! (And LOTS of smoothies to keep cool!) While I will be doing some cooking with this week’s menu, it is all pretty minimal, hands off, and features a rainbow bounty of summer goodness.
