Life really can be a picnic!

Everyone loves a picnic! This blog is about some of the things I love the most, and the term "picnic" just about covers them all. First of all, a picnic has to include food; simple food that is easy to fix. Next, you need someplace fun or different to visit; a nice, peaceful location. And of course, you always need to take along a good book to read and a well-used quilt to spread everything out on. So, there you have it! Easy recipes, good books, fun quilts along with some interesting, down-to-earth places to visit. You can even take your family or a friend or two if you want.

Abundance of Quilts

"The meaning of life is to find your gift.  The purpose of life is to give it away." ~ Pablo Picasso

  I got to attend the Utah Quilting and Sewing Marketplace at the South Town Expo Center in Sandy, Utah with my friends, Patti and Karen.  We had a wonderful time looking at all the quilts and visiting the vendor's booths.





The hot weather is just around the corner so I've included a recipe for a great summer salad.


Greek Chicken Pasta Salad

12-16 oz. dry pasta (rotini or bow tie is good)
2 lbs. grilled chicken breast strips
1 English cucumber, sliced
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 can black olives, cut in half
4 oz. crumbled feta cheese
Half of a red onion, cut in half and thinly sliced
1 (16 oz.) bottle Greek vinaigrette dressing (I used Kraft brand)

Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain and rinse with cold water.  Add all remaining ingredients and toss until everything is evenly coated with the dressing.
Miracle in a Dry Season (Appalachian Blessings Book #1) by [Thomas, Sarah Loudin] 
This is a great book about forgiveness and healing.  It's the Appalachian Blessings Book #1 in the series.
