I had a wonderful day yesterday, I had some very special friends over for lunch. Just a girl kinda day. We sat and talked and laughed the afternoon away!!! Some were friends from school some were neighbors and my daughters even showed up for a while... The summer is just going by so fast, faster then I want it too... I missed my friends from school, I hadn't seen them since school let out. Then with all this hot weather I knew we didn't have a chance for rain!!! Rain what is that? It was a beautiful day to walk around the gardens, even though they are dry and parched from all the heat, and the water barrels are DRY!!!
Here was the menu:
Pack Along Pitas
Dip and Crackers
Peach Cream Crumble Pie
Key Lime Pie
Gazpacho is a Spanish style cold soup made up of uncooked vegetables in a tomato juice broth with lots of fresh herbs. Great for a summer lunch on a hot day!!!
This is what my aunt Jean called "Pack Along Pitas"
I bet I have had this recipe for 25 years and I still love making it... Here is the recipe:
1- 8 oz. cream cheese
1 or 2 cups of cream style cottage cheese (I use 1)
1 pkg. dry Mrs. Grass Vegetable Soup Mix
1/2 C. finely chopped Green Onions
1 tsp. sesame seeds
2 Tbs. lemon juice
2 Tbs. lemon juice
6 hard cooked eggs- chopped
6 pita breads, halved
spinach and lettuce leaves
Mix first 7 ingredients together I just put everything in my Kitchen Aide mixer and blend well.
Let set overnight to blend flavors.
Line pitas with spinach and lettuce and top with about 1/3 cup egg mixture.
This is Peaches & Cream Crumble Pie.
I wish I could remember who's Blog I got this off of because I would love to thank them for the recipe it was AMAZING!!!
So if you are out there speak up please...This is Key Lime Pie one of my favorites, but of course I had to have a piece of both today since it was the first time for the Peach Pie. I told everyone I was testing it out on them and I'm glad I did!!!
Of course we had plenty of Cool Whip to top them off with!!! LOL
My husband ask if the women liked the pies? I just looked at him and said what woman doesn't like pie!!! Da
Have a Great Weekend,
"WISH FOR RAIN"
