Today, I am again taking part in THE SUNDAY POST from The Caffeinated Reviewer. I look forward to it each week! I hope you’ll check out THE CAFFEINATED REVIEWER‘s link up and maybe, after hanging out with me, you’ll cruise around and find some other great blogs.
A few weeks ago I spoke about a crab tree in our landscaping that had been damaged. But it went into what is possibly its last bloom cycle last week and it was spectacular! That tree is the floral display in the header at the top of the post.
This week I had some girlfriends over for lunch and made a Salmon Niçoise. A Niçoise usually has tuna, green beans, potatoes and such with a lovely vinaigrette. I used fresh, wild salmon, asparagus, snap peas, potatoes, hard boiled egg, smoked Gouda, watercress, frisée, and red leaf lettuce. I made a Dijon & dill vinaigrette to go with it. It was a refreshing change from regular a Niçoise. For dessert we had a key lime sorbet and gluten free gingersnaps. I wish I had taken a picture because it was all so pretty.
Otherwise I worked in the yard and got in a ton of my dahlias. I had planned to buy new ones this year but just didn’t get to it.
I got a couple of books this week Mary Balogh, ONLY A PROMISE and ENCHANTED AUGUST (Audio CDs) I will be reviewing ENCHANTED AUGUST on June 11 and having a giveaway for those CDs.
This past week I looked at several books and had Jessica Peterson with a guest Post and Giveaway for THE UNDERCOVER SCOUNDREL. You can still enter the giveaway!
