I don’t really consider myself a clean freak, but I guess if the shoe fits. Or if she walks like a duck and talks like a duck…or in this case, if she feels the need to clean daily whether the apartment needs it or not…
Ok, I guess you can go ahead and call me a clean freak (my husband already does).
Which is why I’m appalled to say we had an ant issue not too long ago. (Ok, that’s a little dramatic. But I was at the very least surprised.) And to make matters worse, one day I heard one of our elderly lady neighbors yelling profanities out in the hallway; I ran out to see what was wrong (yup, some neighbors still do that, lol) and she was complaining about ants!
Do you have an ant problem in your apartment?, she
asked barked. I could have sworn I heard accusation in her voice. I felt like the Spanish Inquisition was at my door. Umm, uh, yeah, we’ve had a few ants this season, I murmured nervously, all the while thinking How did you know?! I was like a criminal trying to cover the tracks of her crime lest she be condemned.
Of course that chat sent me straight back inside for a two-hour cleaning spree.
I figured if I couldn’t get rid of the ants (why do traps not work?!), at least I could make my home as inhabitable to them as possible.
But along with ants, warmer weather also brings good things. Like popsicles. Country bike rides. Picnics. Day trips to the beach. And lighter, easy-to-make meals. (Because who wants to spend an exorbitant amount of time cooking when there are – sometimes, anyway – better things to do?)
This salmon dish is perfect lighter fare for hotter days. I like to serve this salmon with salad greens and charred pita bread to spoon the extra tzatziki on top of. This whole meal comes together before you know it.
And hopefully won’t draw ants, lol.
