Food for the Weather!

   When the weather is in the 80+ who want to turn the oven on to cook and heat their kitchen up more? When the temperature is like that I usually go for something cold and light! Tacos on Sunday, ham wraps and fruit salad on Monday and tonight was Shrimp Cobb Salad. This salad was so good I could eat it every week. The dressing was just wonderful. This salad was so simple and quick I will definitely be making it again!
