Blue Monday – Jazz Festival   18 comments

On Saturday, we went to the KWJZ Music Festival at the Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery.  It was a WARM day but we sure did get to hear some great music and enjoy the time with our neighbors!  I found plenty of blue at the festival…

Flying  up to Alaska today for a week of exploration and vacation!  We will fly to Anchorage and then start our driving tour.   I think we are scheduled to put over 1,000 miles on our rental! My husband always plans our wonderful trips and I show up with my camera to capture every moment!  Can’t wait to share the pictures with you…

Broccoli Salad   4 comments

We went to our friend’s house last night for a casual BBQ dinner and I was in charge of the salad.  I wanted to bring a hearty salad; one that could be considered a side dish.  So, I looked on the internet and then came up with my own in a hurry – lazy broccoli salad:

I bought the broccoli/cauliflower florets in a ready to use bag along with pre-diced red onions and a bunch of red seedless grapes.  I broke down the florets into bite sized pieces mixed it with a quarter cup of the diced red onions and cut about a cup of the red grapes in half.

The dressing consisted of a cup of mayo, 3 tablespoons champagne vinegar and 1 tablespoon sugar mixed together.  Combine the dressing with the broccoli/cauliflower, red onion and grapes and put in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.  When you are ready to serve the salad mix in the cheddar cheese and sunflower seeds to your liking and dig in! Delicious!

While you are waiting for the salad ingredients to get to know one another, you can make pecan thumbprint cookies…

I will share this recipe when I get back to Washington! Wait for it…

This week’s Photo Hunters challenge is tiny.  Last Sunday was a beautiful day for a “tiny” photo hunt so, my husband Steve and I went in search of  “tiny” down at the beach!  This first picture is my choice for the theme.  This was Steve’s brilliant idea!

This second picture is a collage of  our “tiny” search runner ups!  We had a great time searching.  What could be better than catching some rays and dipping your feet in the ocean just to find a “tiny” photo for your Blog?!
