It is already Tuesday! Time is going by so fast lately. I have been enjoying some fun outings and visits with friends! Last Friday was my turn to host The Knitty Biddies. We had a big turnout, with a tight fit around the table.
Here is Jen modeling her scarf all finished. It is made out of the same yarn as I am using, and showed in my previous post.
No pictures, but they would have been pretty funny with our faces void of makeup and our hair slicked back into headbands!!
Today, I had some friends here for a day of swimming and lunch. It was so much cooler today that I was worried it might be too chilly to go in the pool. But it was just perfect. Warm and sunny, with a slight breeze. We even ate outside and it wasn't too hot. I didn't take photos while they were here, but I did take them as I made the salad. This is a salad that my Mama has been making for years. It is a family favorite, and every time I make it, it is enjoyed by all. I hadn't tossed the croutons in too well here yet.
1-2 heads of Romaine Lettuce
1 rotisserie chicken
1 8oz. package of penne pasta
Two generous handfuls of good parmesan cheese
Grape tomatoes, or in my case, cherry tomatoes from the garden
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 to 2 handfuls of either pine nuts or roasted and salted sunflower seeds
I wash my lettuce the night before, removing each piece, and then laying onto a large tea towel to drain.
Blot dry, and then starting at one end of the tea towel, begin to roll the lettuce up into the towel, forming a sort of burrito. Tuck sides in, and place into fridge over night to crisp.
I served it with fresh buttery croissants, and a big bowl of chilled watermelon.
We had a really fun day, that would have been absolutely perfect if my next door neighbor were not having his gigantic sycamore tree cut down today. We normally have such quiet yards, and today we had to listen to chain saws and "TIMBER" all day long. Sorry gals. Next time, I promise it will be quieter!!!!
For the rest of the week, I have Knitty Biddies tomorrow at Joyce's house. And then probably going to head up the hill for some fishing this weekend sometime.
What is going on in your neck of the woods?
