This is truly my kind of weather. I even had a little burst of energy last week, Pa Lloyd helped me do some deep cleaning in the kitchen. I have way too much sitting out, I don’t notice how much cleaning needs to be done until I start digging in. Then I am shocked!! Still have to do the curtains and the inside of the cupboards. The most time consuming room to clean in the house. We still have tomatoes so here is another salad recipe using that delicious summer veggie!
BLT Pasta Salad
10 slices bacon, fried crisp, crumbled save 1 Tablespoon of the bacon fat
12 oz. tri colored pasta, cooked according to directions, drained rinsed in cold water
1/3 cup chopped red onion
1/2 avocado, chopped
1 1/2 cups diced tomato
1 cup cubed or shredded mild cheddar cheese
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
whisk together 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 3/4 cup ranch dressing, 1 Tablespoon bacon grease, pour over salad ingredients and toss, chill until serving.
Have a great week!

I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
