i met with a lady today regarding counter tops has anyone heard of quartz? she said that they look like granite but do not have re-seal them ever, they don't crack, chip, or fade? the price is almost the same but the upkeep is easier? i am not sure what i want. so since i have a kitchen i had to cook something right. i made a pasta salad and some brownies! i took pictures i was so excited that i could make something that wasn't cooked on a grill, griddle, or foreman grill. i swear i never want to see any of those things again for a very long time!
seriously these brownies are so good, lots of walnuts! nothing is better
i made this pasta salad for Liz for tomorrow's swim meet. it is the last county swim meet and there will be like 500 swimmers competing. i seriously wish i could eat carbs like this and not gain like 25 pounds but oh well a 10 year old who swims 2 hours a day can ....... this is what i did
whatever you got pasta salad
2 boxes of pasta (i used whole wheat rotini, and bowtie)
i shredded 2 carrots from in my fridge
1 can of green and 1 can of black olives ( i usually just use black but the green looked good at the store i will let you know how it is)
some cauliflower chopped up
sliced salami that i cut up
and some Italian dressing (i used albertsons brand but usually buy Bernstein's Italian)
toss and refrigerate, in the morning i will add some cubed cheddar cheese and add a little more dressing. yummy.
i have added broccoli, different pastas, different dressings, tomatoes, turkey, ham, chicken etc. it is all great just do what you like.
