Today is a rainy day and as much as we both would have liked to spend it relaxed in our PJs, we decided instead to venture out to Kids Fort to spend some energy. We began the morning with a pancake breakfast, a mid-morning snack of half a clementine, and a PB&J sandwich lunch. Then

Since we had so much balsamic vinaigrette left-over from yesterday’s salad, I decided to use a simple recipe that would go well with balsamic. Here’s today’s salad: baby spinach, goat’s cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes and balsamic vinaigrette. DE-LISH!
