Lunch for the Girls!

I had some very special girls over for lunch today.  We laughed...we cried...we laughed TIL we cried!!  We enjoyed such a great time together.   Our lunch was a Cobb Salad.  It is such an easy thing to serve when you have friends in.  Everything can be prepared ahead of time, and then you assemble the salad when you are ready to eat.  I lined the plates on the counter and made the salads "assembly line style".   

Romaine lettuce, sliced egg, bacon, grated cheddar, cubed baked ham, diced tomato, shredded baked chicken breast.  After everyone left, I went into the kitchen and noticed the yummy avocados still sitting in the fruit bowl on the counter where I placed them so I "wouldn't forget them"!!!! :(  Sorry girls!!

Homemade Parmesan Peppercorn Dip / Dressing

Our salad dressing was a delicious homemade one.  Yvonne from StoneGable has created a wonderful Salad Dressing Primer with several yummy homemade dressing recipes.  She mentioned the Parmesan Peppercorn Dressing in her "On The Menu Monday" post this past week.  I knew it would be perfect for my Cobb Salads this weekend and she very kindly shared it with me!  It was wonderful!  Watch for it in one of her upcoming posts.  

Confession time.  We were too full for dessert right after lunch, so we waited until our lunch settled a bit and then made quick work of these gooey brownies, Vanilla frozen yogurt and fresh Nova Scotia strawberries.  Oh was really good!
