Finally we got some rain here...been waiting for it for weeks - the gardens sure need it. So I am grateful that Mother Nature decided to break the heat and give us some droplets here. I'm loving it. :) It's dark and rainy out. But I am not going to use this opportunity of a rainy/gloomy day to stay in bed, under the covers, being super lazy. Nope. I gotta get up and be productive! I am also going to get a sesh of boxing in today as well. But before I begin doing all that I am going to share a recipe that can be found in the latest issue of Everyday Food {page 62} - it is the perfect Summer lunch - light and healthy! 
Hope everyone else is enjoying this lovely Friday. :)) 

Bon Appetit!
