Beach Day & Cold Peanut Sesame Noodle Salad recipe
Can you believe it was 95 in Mountain View yesterday?? If I didn’t know any better, I would have thought I was back in Fresno.
Since when did I become a weather snob? Someone slap me upside the head.
Anyway we’re heading to the beach to cool off, do some exploring, drink coffee and make fun of each other…the usual.
Until then, here’s a Cold Peanut Sesame Noodle salad recipe I raved about earlier this week.
