Summer Freshness

Once a month the ladies at my church have a dinner together at the church. This month we had a salad theme. This is the lovely antipasto my hubby made me to take-

If anyone is interested(I know my facebook friends sure were!) -here is the recipe-
a zucchini
a yellow squash
mozzarella pearls
cherry tomatoes
roasted red pepper (we used jarred- about a third of the jar)
pancetta(did I spell it right?)

extra virgin olive oil
juice of 2 lemons
jarred garlic
garlic powder

All the spices in the dressings are to taste- he just added a bit of this and a bit of that til it tasted good-enough olive oil to cover the salad thoroughly. It was delicious and so light. We used fresh herbs from our garden too! I love the smell of fresh rosemary.

No stitching progress to show right now- working on Summer House tonight after I finish blogging. :) I did take a few garden pics though-I'm sorry, I just love my little garden!

These little guys just popped up on their own- I didn't even plant them! Not that I remember anyway..

Ugh.  Blogger is so not being my friend tonight. It took me forever to get this post right, it kept doing all kinds of crazy things!
I never did post that snickerdoodle recipe- is posting a recipe from a cookbook copyright infringement?
