This past week the temperatures here have been really comfortable. Last night we had a pretty wild thunder and lightening storm, with some lightning strikes that caused a fire in the valley pretty far from away from us. I think the rain put it out.
Since it’s “dump weekend,” weather permitting, we’re hitching up and going somewhere with no cell service for the weekend. So no posts until Monday.
Dinner Last Night:
Fruit and Nut Jam Salad with a side of pasta marinara. I was going to make just the salad, but as it was coming together I realized it was more of a side salad than an entree, so I boiled up some pasta to go with it.
I thought it was clever that this recipe called for jam in the salad dressing. I used Marionberry Jam that our friend Kier recently gave us. I couldn’t find organic blueberries or cherries, so I used raspberries. It was delicious.
