We went to the Indiana State Fair!!
Glendon Place Tiramisu - very pretty. Makes me want to stitch it! We rode on the tractor that takes you all over the fairgrounds.
Scott had to leave on business for a night. When he got to his hotel they had this up
They gave him a gift bag - water, apple, trail mix and crackers with peanut butter - and a beer voucher which he got coffee for instead. I didn't want him to feel let down when he got home to no fan fair so I made this
The bunny that was visiting hasn't come back since we mowed but we now have this fabulous guy
|the drawer where my stitching goes....|
I am still working on the Gingerbread Needlework shop. It could not be cuter!! I have had a small frog issue - hoping it goes away!!
I have a recipe to share with you. I got it from the September 2015 issue of Sunset magazine. It comes with a yakitori chicken recipe that I was going to make but we had delicious BBQ ribs on the grill instead. The salad sounded good when I read it - it so much better than I expected!! You don't put the avocado in until you are ready to serve.
Cucumber Avocado Salad
1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 English cucumber (10 oz.), quartered lengthwise and cut into 1/2-in. chunks
1 cup slivered red onion
In a large bowl, whisk together vinegar, salt, and 1 tsp. sugar. Add cucumber and onion; toss to coat.. Let set for 10 minutes - add avocado when ready to serve and mix.
It is fabulous - we are having it again tomorrow night with the Siracha Salmon from the Skinnytaste cookbook.
Well kids - I better go look at some homework. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
