I think it's time to slow down and enjoy my days. Maybe I'll read a book, or putz around in my garden or watch a movie with my kids.
Or perhaps combine a few of my favorite things and get my boys to help me out in the garden. They love to sneak through the snaking vines of the watermelon plant and search for the newest baby melons. Finding a cucumber hanging from the trellis is a magical treasure for them. And it's one of my favorite things to watch- the joy they get from watching mother nature get her groove on in our backyard garden.
I don't have any radishes left in the garden now, but we can surely hunt down some cherry tomatoes or gigantic cucumbers. Sounds like a great way to spend a lazy day with my boys...

1 bunch radishes ( I used about 6 large french breakfast radishes)
2 persian cucumbers or 1 medium english (seedless) cucumber
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp mustard seeds (if you can find black mustard seeds use them, I only had brown mustard seeds and they worked just fine)
pinch of kosher salt
Thinly slice both the radishes and the cucumbers. In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt, olive oil, and coriander and mustard seeds. Add salt to taste. Toss in the cucumbers and radishes and stir to coat with the dressing. Serve immediately.
