Nathanial is sharing some tunes with me. He's got one ear piece and I have the other. He has great taste in music! The kids in this family are just growing up right before our eyes, I tell ya. (thanks for the photo Deb!)
As you can see, I'm still catching up with photos from Easter. I promised to post these recipes, so here they are.
This was the first time I had made this salad, and it was really yummy.
Zesty Gazpacho Salad
2 medium zucchini, chopped
2 medium tomatoes, chopped (I used grape tomatoes)
1 ripe avocado, chopped
1 cup fresh or frozen corn, thawed
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions ( I also added a can of drained and rinsed garbonzo beans)
1/2 cup picante sauce
2 Tab minced fresh parsley ( I used fresh Cilantro)
2 Tab lemon juice
1 Tab veg oil ( I left it out)
3/4 teaspoon garlic salt ( I used fresh)
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients: mix well. Pour over zucchini mixture: toss to coat. cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Spring Salad (this recipe has been around forever, but I LOVE it)
2/3 cup Mayo ( I used light Miracle Whip)
2 boxes lime jello (I used sugar free)
1 lb Cottage Cheese
2 cups boiling water
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 can crushed Pineapple
1/2 walnuts (chopped)
Dissolve the jello in the boiling water, add marshmallows, and stir until melted. Add pineapple, cottage cheese, mayo, and nuts. Chill
I've also been wanting to post these pieces of art given to me ,when I had our little "art day" at Paula's a while back.
Paula made me this cool round altered playing card .
And this altered matchbox ....
I went into Fremont this morning to help mom with some house work and pick up some prescriptions for her. I've decided next time I'm not telling her when I'm coming to help, because she had a huge jump start on me this time. We're all so glad she is feeling better and doing so well, but just don't want her to overdo. She doesn't let anything keep her down! It's great to see her feeling SO much better!
Jarad and Kate brought lunch over to moms for us, and we all ate together. I was a really nice day!
Hope all of you are having a great weekend!
