I always use my Grandmother's old canning pot to mix the salad up before putting it into a big Rubbermaid type bowl and into the frig to set. I have a Ladies Night Out, potluck dinner tonight and the church picnic is tomorrow, so I made enough for both!
My bread slicer is a big hit with many of you. I hope you know you can order one from The Wood Loft for $28 and some change, plus shipping (I have their phone number). It is ideal for those of you who bake your own bread.
The slices are the perfect size. Do I sound like a commercial?? I just love this thing so much!
My kitchen is all cleaned up except the 2 loaf pans soaking in the sink, and the draining dishes I washed. Those can all wait.
I am trying to decide if I want to work on the Basket Case quilt, (which is 1/2 way done, btw)....
or play in my sewing room with my latest pleasure....
Look at these new deep greens I got. Think "Evergreen trees". I can almost smell them!
I think I will grab the Basket Case quilt and put my feet up while the whole wheat bread is baking. I better scoot....I think it is about ready to go in!

Every store and the downtown area had special "parking" for horse and buggy. The homes had metal pipe bars for tying horses to also. It was like stepping back in time, though I doubt there was a Dollar General back in the day!One scene that would have been an awesome picture was 2 Amish women in an open buggy hauling a shallow flat bed of peaches....you just knew they were on their way home (they were heading out of town in the early hours of the day) to make peach preserves and pies and jams!!!
