I can not be the only one who needs a day off after that ‘holiday’ weekend, right? Truth of the matter is, I didn’t get a day off! I had to work Friday, Saturday and Monday, leaving Saturday to bake and cook in the morning and run from my parents to Handsome’s parents for over 12 hours in 99 billion degree weather.  Here it is Tuesday, and I’m back to the weekly grind. I think I missed out on something here, because I even lost my Do Nothing Monday. Man, I feel so robbed.

I hope everyone partied hard to make up for it! For the everyone else working retail, I sympathize!

Now after that long, hot weekend, we need something quick, easy, light and COLD to eat. Creamy chicken pasta salad fits the bill perfectly.

I don't normally like mayo-based pasta salad, but seeing your pics made me crave this right now. I may have to make it for dinner this week...sounds perfect for a hot day! I bet it tuna instead of chicken could be equally tasty (i.e. easier) ;)
