Yummy steak!  But check out the size of hubbies raviolis!

Sabbath Prayer   1 comment

Grant that we lie down in peace,

Secure in Thy protecting love,

And shelter us beneath Thy wings

To keep us safe throughout the night.

On the morrow raise us up

In perfect peace to life, O God,

To face each task with faith in Thee,

Our zeal renewed and strength restored.

Save us for Thine own name’s sake,

And guard us from all lurking foes.

Remove all sorrow, hatred, strife,

And turn Thy children’s hearts to Thee.

Spread Thy tent of peace, O Lord,

Above Jerusalem, we pray,

And shield Thy people, Lord

Dispersed abroad in every land.

Praise be Thou, our Lord and King,

Whose sheltering love spreads over us,

Enfolding all who seek Thy peace,

Who find their hope and strength in Thee. Amen.

Tennis Anyone?   3 comments

Went to my very first tennis match this evening in Newport Beach.  It was a World Team Tennis event – The Newport Beach Breakers were hosting the New York Sportimes.  John McEnroe was playing on the New York team.  We were there with a sponsor and were able to meet John McEnroe and take pictures with him.  Had a great time!!

Broccoli Salad   4 comments

We went to our friend’s house last night for a casual BBQ dinner and I was in charge of the salad.  I wanted to bring a hearty salad; one that could be considered a side dish.  So, I looked on the internet and then came up with my own in a hurry – lazy broccoli salad:

I bought the broccoli/cauliflower florets in a ready to use bag along with pre-diced red onions and a bunch of red seedless grapes.  I broke down the florets into bite sized pieces mixed it with a quarter cup of the diced red onions and cut about a cup of the red grapes in half.

The dressing consisted of a cup of mayo, 3 tablespoons champagne vinegar and 1 tablespoon sugar mixed together.  Combine the dressing with the broccoli/cauliflower, red onion and grapes and put in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.  When you are ready to serve the salad mix in the cheddar cheese and sunflower seeds to your liking and dig in! Delicious!

While you are waiting for the salad ingredients to get to know one another, you can make pecan thumbprint cookies…

I will share this recipe when I get back to Washington! Wait for it…
