|Can't really tell much, but it's a beautiful Linen color - just a tad off from white.|
Also while CR was painting I made a pasta salad recipe I saw on the internet. I can't tell you where I found it, but it looked so good:
And let me assure you CR has taste tested and approved it.
Here is the recipe if you're interested:
Easy Italian Pasta and Veggie Salad Recipe
- 8 oz pasta
- 3 roma tomatoes, chopped
- 1 can black olives
- 1 can marinated artichoke hearts (I chopped them up for the salad)
- 1/3 cup mayo
- 1/8 cup garlic olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
- 3 tablespoons fresh basil, thinly chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
Step 1: cook pasta according to directions on the box. When cooked rinse with cold water and let cool
Step 2: While pasta is cooling, chop tomatoes and artichokes and basil
Step 3: Combine all ingredients into a large bowl
Step 4: Mix the mayo, oil, Italian seasoning, dill, salt and pepper for the dressing and mix with the rest of the salad. Refrigerate until it's time to serve.
I'll be serving the salad with come Copper River Salmon. The best salmon out there if you ask me and only available for a short time. We neither one are fond of frozen salmon, so you get it fresh and eat all you can while it lasts.
We went to Farmers Market this morning and I got fresh spinach, Walla Walla sweet salad onions, fresh strawberries and asparagus. Oh how I love this time of year and going to farmers market. Pretty soon it will be blueberry picking time and I can't wait for that, but I don't want to wish my summer away, so one thing at a time.
How's your weekend and do you go to a local farmers market??
