I've made this White Bean Salad several times this summer.
It's so good!
White Bean Salad
2 Cans White Beans (Cannellini Beans), rinsed and drained
1/2 red onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 small cucumber, seeded and diced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup cilantro, chopped
2 Tbsp olive oil (optional; I don't use it)
2 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
Serve chilled. I liked to eat it wrapped in romaine lettuce leaves, but it's good on its own too.
I was looking through this book today and decided on two afghan patterns I'd really like to make this winter...
I've always admired this one, but I didn't want to deal with the changing of colors mid-row. I think I'm up for it now. It's so pretty!
This is another one I've stared at over and over again.
I just love it.
It involves cross stitching the trees on after you've finished the crochet part.
I want it!
The willow squares blanket I'm working on now is still on the dining room table, but I did manage to join one row of squares yesterday. I'm going to force myself to do another row today. I don't know why I'm dragging my feet. I'm usually chomping at the bit to finish when I get to this point in a crochet blanket. Now I'm like, meh, whatever.
This fly. It's evil.
Pretty good picture though, eh?
This fly terrorized me half the day on Tuesday. I'm not kidding. It would fly up out of the blue and get one inch from my face and just hang there...BZZZZZZZ! No matter what I did, I could not kill the damn thing! It must have happened 20 times. TWENTY! "BZZZZZ! BZZZZZ! I'm going to eat your face and lay maggot eggs in your nose!" That's what I imagined he was thinking, and I'm pretty sure I'm right. Why else would he hover one inch from my face and return over and over again? I saw it hiding one time on a leaf of my hanging plant watching me on my bed giving me the stink-eye. As soon as I snapped this photo, he took off to another hiding place. I swiped at him a thousand times with a magazine or whatever I could grab to hit him with, but I never did kill him. I left the bedroom to make dinner and he disappeared somewhere. EVIL! It was the weirdest thing.
We lit the stove for the first time a few days ago.
As you can tell, the dogs loved it.
I'm still looking for ideas for my kitchen remodel.
I've decided on the Mexican Tile for the backsplashes along the walls.
I L♥VE this tile!
I'm pretty sure I'm going with white cabinets and white with a gray swirl countertops.
The floors will be something darkish that doesn't show doggie footie-print dirt.
I'm hangry. I gotta go eat.
