Last week, I was on staycation. So the theme of this remix, other than peaches and colored shorts, is low-maintenance. I knew I wanted to find a peach recipe that wasn't a dessert and incorporated ingredients I already had. So I opted for this light summer salad, the perfect side to anything grilled! It was so easy and tasty I made it again this week, threw it on top of mixed greens, and added grilled chicken for a quick dinner.

Fresh Peach Side Salad
  • Peaches
  • Tomatoes
  • Red Onion
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Sugar
I've already thought of ways to remix this recipe; substitute honey for sugar, pancetta for salt, and possibly throw in some basil. What do you think?
I kept my 'fit low maintenance, too, since I was determined to sleep in despite the heavy construction going on in the apartment above me. On Wednesday, I was out the door in 15 minutes, heading to Santa Cruz for an Acai Bowl at Cafe Brazil and a nap at Natural Bridges.
(This picture of me gawking at the abnormally large pelicans was too funny not to include.) Thanks, Mama Roe, for the birthday earrings. I love them! With a 'fit so simple, I actually found it difficult to accessorize. Earrings, a necklace, three bracelets, and a ring felt like too much for me; but I kept things simple by sticking to jade and gold. The manfriend said I looked like a proper mahjong champion. I guess that's a compliment?

The attached song is kind of risque, but it was this or "Peaches and Creams" by 112 because no matter how catchy "Peaches" is by the U.S. Presidents, I'm just not going to play it.
