Summer Salad Nicoise

Finally getting some of those uncomfortably warm days that require staying out of the hot kitchen which gets the sun all afternoon. Luckily I had enough leftover cooked green beans and potatoes to put together a “salad Nicoise.” Honestly, I’m not sure what all the ingredients are supposed to be, but I know the basics are green beans, potatoes and tuna. I added red onions, tomatoes, olives and fresh basil. I had put the can of tuna in the fridge to make sure it was nice and cold, and the asiago bread came out of the freezer and got a quick toasting. Perfect summer patio meal, even if Louis wouldn’t once admit it was good. (but I know he liked it.)

Can o’Soup

OK we got back from L.A. & there was no food in the house. So we opened a can’o’soup. Now we had a big hint that it might not be great when the second ingredient listed after ‘water’ was ‘pink beans.’ What? OK, it was warm in the belly, and we did fix it up a bit, but folks: avoid this particular can o’soup!

There was left-over salad too which was, well,  day-old semi-limp salad.  After the holidays, a real low…

Ev says: What?  The salad was delicious!  Thank you Lucy for giving us the left-over salad from the day before.
