It is hard to believe it is July considering the temperature here is in the 60’s, and I am freezing. The good news is that it is not raining. We are having my parents and Steve’s brother over for a picnic around 6 pm….we are eating inside!!! Steve is going to grill Sahlen hotdogs and I made a potato salad, a crab macaroni salad and a new salad recipe I got from the Kraft site. It is really yummy and could actually be a meal all my itself. I used 4 cups of cooked mini bow tie pasta, 8 oz. of precooked chicken breast cuts from the dairy case, which I cut in very small pieces. Next is 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries, 2 cups small cantaloupe cubes, and 2 cups green or red seedless grapes cut in half. This all gets mixed gently and then you add 3/4 cup of Kraft Creamy Poppyseed Dressing, mix well and refrigerate. The taste we had told us this recipe was a keeper. I have baked beans in the oven and Steve made a jello cake with cool whip on top. Hopefully everything will taste great.
Finally, I finished the last of those 5 diaper/tote bags I had cut out. It seems good to think about making something totally different.. I really had to exercise self discipline to finish all 5 of them before beginning another project. Here is a pic. I have a question…if something has fish on it, is it considered “Nautical”?? Couldn’t decide if I should use the word in the description.
