So It was Pia’s 9th Birthday on Wednesday and I just can’t believe how big she is getting!! And SO fast! I know I have told you guys how she is obsessed with fencing and thinks she is going to the 2028 Olympics, so Pete got her this custom painted “Direwolf “ fencing mask for her birthday. GOT fans much? Pia just thinks it’s a cool kind of wolf and Pete and I know it’s way cooler than that… And despite the fact that she has been vegan for about a month she requested Bolognese for her birthday- I just didn’t mention what was in it…

Ok- and school is back in session. At first I was mourning them going back to school- but two days in, and I am totally cool with it. I am loooooving the quiet. I also feel like getting back to the grind for the first time in weeks- so maybe those adorable little girls of mine were sucking up more energy than I realized.

OMG. You know what’s cool? When Sarah Jessica Parker cooks, eats and photographs the Crunchy Kale Tacos Salad she made from my book. Then she wrote an email to say that it was awesome and she ate it all. I can die happy now!

Ok, so even though we are back to school and the work grind and all that stuff, I am not quite ready for pumpkin spice and all the other fall stuff yet (but it’s just a matter of time!) Despite the fact that we have had nothing but gray drizzly days all week, there is sun and mid seventies in our future! So I have to share a few more recipes that are for those of us that still have Summery weather in our lives.

Grilling, salads and fresh bold flavors are still what’s on our table right now and I have to share a recent delicious dinner with you. Super tender marinated grilled skirt steak and a fresh cabbage cilantro slaw make for an extra flavorful and healthy dinner that the whole family will love!
