I must say that I don’t feel like cooking much right now, I get a lot of ideas and I see a lot of interesting recipes but when it comes to realize these I just feel like doing nothing. Heat waves are tiresome both for your body and for your mind but today I just had to make something for this week’s Weekend Herb Blogging, hosted by my great friend Kalyn this week (I have made a lot of really nice friends since I started food blogging) so it is to Kalyn’s Kitchen you have to go for the roundup on Monday. And as we have to eat lunch despite this unwillingness of mine, I made this salad with lots of fresh herbs and tuna!
