It’s time for the Old Fashioned Recipe Exchange with Little House on the Prairie, and today I’m sharing what I made for an event at my husband’s work. Bruschetta with Tomato and Mozzerella. I’m not sure that it’s technically Bruschetta. but I didn’t know what else to call it. This is simple, yummy and easy to take to a party or potluck!
Just a few simple ingredients and you’re ready to go:
12 oz Garlic “chips” from Ralph’s
An 8 oz Mozzerella ball from the nicer cheese section, thinly sliced and halved, since the “chips” are small.
3 Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
20-25 Spinach leaves
Some olive oil
Salt and pepper
Lay out the “chips” and brush each one with the olive oil. Start layering, mozerella, spinach and tomato, until each “chip” is loaded. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper and serve. Enjoy!
I forgot to photograph the spinach, but you all know what it looks like. And these are actually my scraps above. :>
It’s time for Modest Mondays with the Modest Mom again! I love that she hosts this wonderful link-up every week! This week’s dress is peach and black and came from WalMart. I wore a Cami-Secret again to get rid of the crazy plunging neckline that is soooo popular. I paired it with this heart-on-a-black-cord necklace and dangling hoop and black “pearl” earrings. The shoes? Sanitas again. I love the peach color of this dress!
What are you wearing this week?
Hey everyone! Here’s a new crocheted item in my Etsy Shop: This adorable Crocheted Turquoise Purse! With the white flower detail, it’s whimsical and cheerful, and great gift for women and girls alike!
So hop on over to the shop and take a peek!
P.S. One of my pet peeves? The new trend to use the word “crochet” for everything, with no regard to tense, verb, etc!
I crocheted this purse, or it was crocheted, it is a crocheted item. I like to crochet. I do a lot of crocheting. Almost every single person who pins an item like this to Pinterest, uses the incorrect word to describe it. It just drives me crazy! Sorry for the rant…
After a long break, I’m posting with the Old Fashioned Recipe Exchange with Little House on the Prairie Living today! I made this Fruit Pizza for our church potluck on Sunday, but I used my favorite crust this time…PERFECT! This is such an easy, pretty, versatile and crowd pleasing recipe!
I usually make it round like a pizza usually is, but I knew I’d be slicing it up for the potluck, so I just made a rectangle instead.
Here’s how I made it this time:
6 Tablespoons butter
3/4 cup icing sugar
1 Cup flour
1 Tablespoon milk
Cream the sugar and butter together. Blend in the flour and milk. Spread thinly into the shape you want and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Let crust cool.
About 6 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Mix all together and spread over cooled crust.
Any fruit of your choice. I used about 6 oz. of blackberries and 8 oz. of strawberries. Slice and place on the crust. Voila!
I’m taking a break from vacation posts today for Modest Mondays! After a long break, it’s good to be back! Yesterday I wore this fun lilac dress, which I believe is from Kohl’s. Those $10 off of $10 or more cards are great!! The tiered skirt is so fun and happy! I wore one of my “Cami Secrets” for modesty, because soooo many things are made tooooo low cut. Over it I wore my favorite go-to short sleeved cardigan from a thrift store. The jewelry I chose to accent the black, as I realized I don’t really have lilac jewelry. I chose the heart on a cord necklace and hoops with black, dangling pearls.
I love the comfort and pretty color of this outfit!
Monday was our last chance for a trip to Tillamook and a visit to The Pioneer Museum, Netarts (one of our honeymoon locations), Cape Lookout and The Cheese Factory! These are all places my family enjoyed every year growing up and my husband’s family now also enjoys. We were enthralled by some darling birds we came across at The Terimore in Netarts. I realized later that my camera somehow was on the wrong setting though, it does that sometimes when I take it out of it’s case, but still okay photos.
On the way we tried to find the location of the restaurant we found on our way to Netarts after our wedding, because we were STARVING. Does anyone get to eat at their wedding? : > We found it! It was remodeled, with new owners, but still there, and the owner chatted with us a bit. I’m amazed we found it as it was dark, raining and we were not very observant of anything but each other at the time, but we did. It was called “Bayside Gardens” then.
We also saw what we called “the octopus tree swing” at Cape Lookout, the “airplane tree” we all used to “fly” and the “kissing sea monsters” out in the water.
Warning: Tons of photos!!!
We saw so many license plates throughout our trip, I decided I would start keeping track. I didn’t start recording them for a few days, so there may be states I’ve forgotten. Many, many people besides us seem to be vacationing in Oregon this summer!
