A weekend of painting
This weekend we did some painting at Robb's house. It went from a peachy tan with avocado green trim to a very pretty dark gray. It was fun to get a group together to paint and we all brought food to share which was almost as much fun as the painting. I brought a salad each day. I have a few greens ready in the greenhouse and I used them for the salads. Saturday I took a salad that was mixed greens, apples, candied pecans and goat cheese with a balsamic vinaigrette. Sunday I took an arugula salad with grilled watermelon, pistachios and mint with a honey lime dressing. I blogged about the second salad here. It was a new recipe and I will definitely make it again. The recipe suggested that other grilled summer fruits could be substituted for the watermelon, perhaps peaches, plums or pears.
