We've been seeing some unseasonal weather conditions over the recent weeks; now in the middle of April, we're still wearing scarfs, hats and coats when going out! This means before we've even a chance to put away the winter clothing, the summer months are upon us.
在英國，雖然夏天不會太熱；除了間中氣温會高至 30C 或以上。大部分時間，由五月至九月，天氣都是和暖舒暢的。
In the UK, we don't get very hot summers; though having said that, we do have temperatures rising up to 30C occasionally. But most of the time, from May to September, we enjoy quite comfortable warm weather.
It doesn't matter where we are in the world, summertime call for change of wardrobe, and that sometimes means action needs to be taking to restore the shape of our body after the comfort eating that's undoubtedly happened during the long cold winter. By eating healthily and doing more exercises, we can enjoy the hot season and its fashionable outfits with more confidence.
With so much fresh fruits and vegetables available nowadays, making healthy meals for ourselves and our family couldn't be easier.
I am planning to prepare lots of healthy, nutritious yet delicious and satisfying meals in the coming posts, to share with you my dear readers. As I know my daughter will be anticipating them with interest too, that motivates me to try and cook up even more fun and exciting recipes. Hope you will like them too.
To start with, I made this " Fresh Fruit and Pasta Salad " for our lunch the other day. The fresh flavour from the fruits and celery, combined with the wholesome pasta; mixed in the herb, mayonnaise, mustard, lemon and honey homemade dressing, made eating this salad such an enjoyable experience. You wouldn't even notice there was no meat in the meal; quite frankly, you don't need it!

My husband is not normally a salad person, but even he loved it so much that he asked me if he could have it again!
