Good Morning to you! Last night on the news, the forecaster said that May is always our wettest month~so why does it seem that the rain has been falling every day and more than in past years. I know we've had some nice days and starting this weekend, we are supposed to be entering a warm phase, but seriously it seems like we are in Seattle. Yesterday a friend came over, she is one of the first gals I met when we moved here over eight years ago. We did a lot of things together back then; her kids were still in junior high and it was a different season on life. Now she is preparing to move cross country. She had hubby and I over several times, years ago, but somehow it never worked to have her and her hubby over. I wanted to have a nice lunch for her to celebrate the times we spent together. I made this delicious Quinoa salad; it has cucumbers, onion, tomatoes, black and garbanzo beans, basil ribbons and feta cheese. The dressing was lime juice and olive oil. It's one of my favorites.
I put out baked Parmesan crisps, french bread with olive oil and pesto. I also made a berry salad with coconut yogurt that was the perfect dessert.
I'm off to a quilt meeting this morning and then home to sew afterwards.
Stay warm and dry; seems like there is heavy rains all over.
Joy to you!

Yes, it's raining here ... and is cold! It looks like spring when I look out the window, but it sure felt more like winter when we went to Siteman this morning. I can't wait for warmer weather so I can get back outside and walk. I'm missing my walks. 😟ReplyDelete
Oh yes, time spent with good friends is always such a treat. We haven't had much rain here but I do feel like it's been a pretty mild May and spring here so far. I'd love to hear the recipe too for that salad. It sounds delish. Hope your having a good week!ReplyDelete
It is so great to reconnect with old friends! Your lunch sounds delicious! Blessings, Pam @ Everyday LivingReplyDelete
Oh that food looks so yummy!ReplyDelete
Oh how I wish God would send some of that rain down to AZ. We certainly did not get the promised moisture from the El Nino this year that we hoped for. I hope you really enjoyed your time with your friend. Enjoy the days ahead! Blessings, Cindy xoReplyDelete
