I’m definitely a person who goes through phases with food. I’ll eat the same thing for days, or even weeks on end. Then I’ll get bored and start eating something new.
This only applies to breakfast, lunches, and snacks. Dinner is something different every night. Except about once a week when we get Lebanese carry-out. That is a rut that we probably won’t be leaving any time soon.
I think I’m in my current lunch rut because it is a summery meal and I’m really itching for some warmer weather. Michigan hasn’t been kind to us lately. We took a nice walk today but the sun was deceiving–it was still quite cold!
Lucky you if it is really summer and you can use fresh tomatoes from your garden. That would make this salad really shine! I just have to imagine that right now.
