Amy Butler Quilt Sneak Peek

Sneak a peek at my Amy Butler Soul Blossoms quilt.  I made it last Saturday night with a little help from my mom (JanMade).  Like my first quilt I made a year ago, once I started it, I couldn't stop.  I ordered the collection of squares from Ebay and bought the white fabric from Hobby Lobby.  For the back and binding, I am choosing one of my favorite fabrics from the collection.  I can't wait to get it quilted.  More details and photos will be posted when it's complete!  Also, check it out on my Amy Butler Pinterest board!

Apple Bacon Salad

I decided to make a salad for lunch today, since we had a bag of lettuce that needed to be finished.  With standards set high from my last salad- a strawberry salad with homemade dressing- I wanted to make another easy, yet delicious salad.  I didn't have strawberries, but I did have Gala apples.  I also had almonds.  I checked Pinterest for dressing ideas that would taste great with apples.  I found one, but I did not have all the ingredients.  While checking for dressing ideas, I came across a photo of an apple salad that also had bacon pieces mixed in.  I had bacon!  I also had balsamic vinaigrette dressing that I decided to top my salad with.  It all worked so well together.  I liked it so much I had it again with my dinner!

Strawberry Salad

Need a quick, easy meal?  Try this wonderful strawberry salad.  I got the recipe for the salad and dressing on Annie's Eats blog, which I also pinned on one of my Pinterest boards, entitled Even I Could Make This!  The sweet dressing is mixed using fresh strawberries, apple cider vinegar, sugar, salt, and champagne/white wine.  I used white wine.  The recipe also suggests using all spinach leaves.  I don't care for a salad with only spinach, so I bought mixed greens.  Top with almonds and fresh strawberries and enjoy!
