2 Try-able Recipes.

Two yummy recipes to share today.  One from a good friend of mine...another from Pinterest.  Remember how I said that ya win some ya lose some on the ole Pin-interest {as my husband calls it}!? Well this one was a BIG win.


Joe went as far as to say that it was his NEW FAVORITE dish.
Translation: it's super super yummy.
PLUS...it's made in the crock pot.  DOUBLE bonus!!

The next recipe is one of my very most favorite pasta salads from my good friend Molly. 
Bbq season is upon us {wahoo!}....and this makes the perfect side dish.

Yummy Pasta Salad

4 cups cooked tri-color pasta
1/2 cup red bell pepper
1/2 cup sliced olives {I omit these...not a fan}
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup pine nuts {optional....but for me...they are a MUST!}
Chopped cucumbers {Because I add these to EVERY salad I make}

Dressing:

1 Tbs. garlic minced
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
1/8 c. lemon juice
1/2 c. olive oil
1 Tbs. salt
1 tsp. pepper

Toss all ingredients with dressing.
Chill and Serve.

{If you want...you COULD make this as a main dish....just add shredded rotisserie chicken. Would be SUPER yum!}
