After a couple of hours on the road with 3 kids, I rolled into my parents’ driveway around dinnertime with a stuffed van and 4 empty bellies. I was excited to see that my dad prepared a mouthwatering spread, complete with Basil Corn and Edamame Salad, Quinoa Salad with Asian Sesame Vinegrette, Homemade Sweet Potato Fries, fruit salad, and a freshly baked homemade sourdough bread.  What a welcoming!  I loaded my plate with greens, quinoa salad, edamame salad, and topped it with freshly diced avacado and added the sides. Delicious!  It was good to be home!  Thanks, Dad!
