Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share

feather1

Happy Monday!  Yeah, this is a random/miscellaneous photo I took recently.  If anyone can tell me the name of this plant, please chime in – I’m interested to know.  Since it’s hard to see the perspective from this photo…these were a lot taller than I am!

Other random stuff I’ve done or noticed lately:

  1. I enjoyed listening to “Racing Porcupines” on my way to work a few days ago.  Good motivational stuff!
  2. I studied a few parables of Jesus recently and was interested to learn that most parables are included in the books of Matthew, Mark and Luke…but not in the Gospel of John – there’s just allegories in the Book of John. I was also interested in the categorization of the parables…especially the eschatological parables.
  3. I was at a luncheon this week and they served a kale/quinoa/pomegranate salad that looked really Christmassy-Red-and-Green.  I wonder if I could pull off serving something like that at my house (???) I tried to find a recipe, but nothing popped up.  Anyone have any clues of where to find a similar-sounding recipe?

Have a great Monday!  Do or learn something New!

a NEW recipe…to use up my basil with

basildressing

 

Happy Friday!  I kind of, sort of…pretty much forgot about the basil that I planted early this summer.  It didn’t seem to be doing all that great in the heat, but my hubby brought in some last night and said there was quite a bit more.  So, I tried this NEW salad dressing recipe.  The recipe called for 2 1/2 cups of chopped basil.  Normally, that might be a bit much to harvest all at one time, but we had plenty of it!

Here’s the Recipe:

Hi all! Well, yesterday when I was looking through the photos on my phone for Friday’s post, look what I found!  I had forgotten I took a quick pic of this yummy salad I made for a 4th of July BBQ!  I knew I MUST share the recipe with all of you!  It’s a copycat recipe from a very popular café in my area…Zupa’s Café.  HERE’S where I found the recipe.

Have a great Saturday!  Do or Learn something NEW!
