HELLOOOO
Man, it's quiet around here.

The kids are gone for 3 days/2 nights at their grandparent's. The house is clean, though my to-do list includes yet more cleaning, in anticipation of hosting the AWC Independence Day Party next weekend.

Last week, I had thought that things were finally loosening up at work...ha ha HA. Every time I think that, I get slammed with more projects. And still a month to go before vacation...sigh.

Tomorrow is book group deluxe: with potluck AND slumber party, at my friend brief_therapy's place! I can't wait! She told us to bring something to throw on the grill and "our favorite salad"...which had me wracking my brains all day. Favorite salad? How can I chooooose?

First, I thought about bringing a delicious avocado & cottage cheese mix that is O! So! Yummy! But then remembered a lovely couscous salad that Anders found a recipe for in Buffé magazine which we've served a couple of times at various dinner parties, and which I love: It's called Väldoftande couscoussallad which translates as: "highly scented couscous salad"; which of course, cracks me up.

It's smelly because it has cardemom and cinnamon in it, but mostly what it is, is YUMMY. It's also incredibly easy and quick to boot, and you can make it ahead of time. Here's the recipe (in Swedish...if you want a translation, let me know).

What's YOUR favorite salad?

67 and don't call me chump! *laugh*

My favourite salad is a marinated carrot salad my mom always made. I haven't made it for a very long time, Ibo is allergic to carrots and it uses canned tomato soup which was hard to come by here a while back. *laugh*

67! *bows* I'm not worthy! :D

Well it won't be hard for you to pass me by now. My days of sitting and reading a book seem to be over. *laugh*

Favorite salad: A pasta salad with walnuts
Cook your favorite pasta (I like shells) and rinse under cold water
Make a dressing out of:
Balsamico
Olive oil
Chopped walnuts
A little honey or maple syrup
salt
pepper
fresh garlic, crushed
chopped red onion
toss and serve, preferably, with chopped avocado and fresh tomatoes

I'm not a walnut fan, but the rest of it sure sounds good!

I'm loving Beets and Feta on top of mixed greens dressed with balsamic dressing and nuts(pecans or walnuts) is wonderful.
Have fun at the book group deluxe. Love, Lizardmom
