Rainy Day New Recipe

The rain and the humidity have me running though recipe ideas looking for a no-cook option that has some redeeming nutritional value.  It’s worth noting we generally shop for groceries monthly, but due to traveling this month – we took the oldest two to Alaska for a week-we opted not to shop this month so the food options are limited to what the kids and I bought for $100 on Monday.  Today’s lunch experiment was admittedly a saved recipe from my Facebook feed; Strawberry Spinach Penne Salad  from Creme de la Crumb.  We altered it slightly – I’m still dairy-free so the yogurt was an optional add-on at our table and the cranberries sat neatly on the counter instead of in the bowl (aka I neglected to add them to the salad, oops!). Everyone ate it and the only cooking I did was boiling the pasta. Now the pasta boiling definitely didn’t help the humidity in the house, but  less than 15 mins for a pasta salad that was a one-dish hit with the family was worth the added sticky!
