We got rain! Today it was only 83F and cloudy. Late this afternoon it started raining. It started raining after I had hung up welcome home signs for my neighbor Fran. She has been gone a couple of months visiting her daughter in New Mexico. I made signs and hung them on her mailbox, front gate and by her front door. Even tied balloons next to the signs. Came home and what do I hear but rain falling on my tin roof. Her signs may be wet but they still let her know she is loved and was missed. The rain has cooled things down so nicely. No air condition running at all today. The doors and windows open to let the fresh cool air and the lovely sounds of the animals in. Its suppose to get down in the 60's tonight so I hooked up Bud's heat lamp. He doesn't like cool weather at all but loves being outside. It won't be long till I will be moving him back inside for the winter. He will pout at me for a couple of weeks for bringing him inside. Fall is just around the corner. I am going to get out the fall decorations tomorrow. I just love decorating each season. Hopefully the cats will leave things alone.
French Potato Salad
Boil 6 red potatoes till done but still firm. Drain and either slice or quarter potatoes. (however you like) Salt and pepper to taste. I use sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Dice 3 green onions, 5 basil leaves, and 5 rosemary. Add this to the potatoes. Add 4 tablespoons (more if you want) of balsamic and basil vinaigrette salad dressing. Mix well and serve warm. I take this whenever I have to have a covered dish somewhere. I always have to give the recipe and there is never any left over to bring home.
