Cold and Creamy Chicken and Pasta Salad
Ever shop for the holiday or a family meal and decide you need another salad? Or need to bring something fast and simple, yet tasty and a bit different? This Chicken Pasta Salad is just the ticket. And you can skip the chicken is you have no meat guests and family. Cook the pasta while you take care of other details. But if you like to make the dish the night before and “grab and go” like I do this works for you! I love this salad as it uses avocados making it special over the store bought pre made options. Your family is going to ask for more!
Graduation Cupcake Toppers
Cupcake Graduation Toppers, These were served at a graduation party I attended. I couldn’t believe how cute and simple they were! When I found out how simple they were to make I had to pinch myself for not even thinking about this! The chocolate square, a reese peanut butter cup, mini mm and some frosting brought the entire celebration to an edible conclusion. If you are going to a graduation party this year these are the best dish to bring. I don’t make great cupcakes so I will do a rectangular cake with individual cut pieces. Or maybe even brownies!!
Grilled Parmesan Asparagus
Do you get as excited as I do when grilling season comes around? With a working farm just down the street the first crop of the season is asparagus. This is the time when my prodigal son returns for the life of “eating at mom’s” every Sunday. This is my time to be able to cook the meals I love and set another plate or two at the table. The meals of sausage, salmon, hot dogs, chicken, burgers, fresh veggies, sautéed mushrooms and onions become common and the fresh summer sides overflow my counter. Sports is on the television and conversations take place in the kitchen and living area. And in case you are wondering, when I get a good big fire going in the grill I do go overboard and make enough variety for the week! Yum!
