NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!

QuotecupQUOTE OF THE WEEK

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky is by no means a waste of time." ~ John Lubbock

This is one of those weeks where the vacation feeling lingers… Flagplayground2

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

This week's recipe is a simple pasta salad that I associate with summer, but is delicious any time of year.

PASTA SALAD with BROCCOLI, PEPPERONI and CHEESE

  • Pasta salad - pepperoni 16-ounce package rotini pasta
  • 1/4 pound sliced pepperoni, rounds cut in half
  • 12-ounce package Broccoli Wokly, broken into small pieces
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 8-ounce fresh mozzarella cheese ball, cubed
  • 1/2 pound cheddar cheese, cubed

Add pepperoni, broccoli, tomatoes, mozzarella and cheddar cheese. Add dressing and mix well. Garnish with shredded parmesan cheese and refrigerate at least an hour before serving.
