Since I spend most of the year complaining about the intolerable heat here in the UAE,it would only be fair to share the precious few days of good weather that we’re having at the moment.
I am in love with anything and everything that is even remotely winter-ish :

Beautiful clouds that the sun enjoys setting on fire every morning!

The cold morning breeze that finally justifies owning a jacket in the UAE!

Cloud formations that the kids and I spend the way to school weaving stories about, imaginary creatures, giant elephants(yes my son is still in love with elephants) and of course, dragons!

Today’s quinoa salad is quick and easy. It is actually one of my go to lunches lately  topped with some grilled chicken or shrimp. The recipe is actually a copycat recipe for a salad we love at one of the local restaurants. The combination of colors, textures and flavors is so refreshing!

The first Monday of the month means  it is time for our secret recipe club reveal. I always look forward to sharing my recipe choice with the group. Keeping a secret for a month, sneaking around your assigned blog, looking for inspiration is fun but sharing your creation with the others and finding out what the person who was assigned to my blog made is the part I love the most.
