We were fortunate enough to be invited to SIL and BIL's home for some grilled chicken and kielbasa.
I. Love. Kielbasa.
I must have said it one too many times, because my four year old niece looked at me with her beautiful blue eyes and her sweet little smile and said, "Aunt Karen, I know, because you keep saying that!"
So, I said it a few more times between mouthfuls of kielbasa in case she forgot.
I brought over a simple, but pretty patriotic salad with lettuce, spinach, strawberries, pears, and blueberries.
We topped it with a poppyseed dressing.
1/4 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup White Wine Vinegar
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
1 or 2 Strawberries
Stir in 1 Tablespoon poppyseeds.
I thought that adding berries to the dressing would be cute and fun.
It was fun... but with the olive oil, it made the dressing more coral colored than the lovely pink I had envisioned. No biggie.
Before dessert, we went outside so that my niece could attack Hubby with water balloons and I could snap some photos for products soon to be seen in the Love Deliveries shop.
It's in the shop!
The cutest, funnest, greatest apron
I am so excited about it.
Make sure you visit the shop this week to see!
While outside, I became a mosquito buffet.
I even got a big bite right in the middle of my forehead.
Unfortunately, this is becoming an annual event...
When we got back inside, my niece said, "Aunt Karen, you look sad!"
She gave me a big hug and took me to her medical clinic.
It is THE BEST clinic around.
I have been given prescriptions for M&M's in the past.
Yesterday was even better.
I got a plastic bandage cuff that I was to wear while eating ice cream!
(My bug bites started feeling better almost instantly.)
SIL had prepared a great little buffet of ice cream toppings.
Even better? There was no boring ice cream in sight.
Plain vanilla? No way.
Our choices included Snickers, Rocky Road, and Reese's Peanut Butter.
Our sundaes were awesome.
How awesome you ask?
