Forrest got home, took a nap, and then we decided to do something I haven't done since I was 8 years old - miniature golf....
Is this real life?! (Hey Holly Bells! )
Umm, yes - this is our real life in Dothan.
Professional putt-putt golfer - or so he claims. I happened to get the only hole-in-one of the night - thank ya, thank ya very much.
Check out that golf stance - Dad taught me well. He always said "All business deals happen on the golf course - you should learn." Wellll...at least I learned to play putt-putt - I'm sure he's so proud :)
He was concentrating - no photos please...oopsie.
The final score - Forrest beat me by one. I want a re-match.
After sweating it out in the 200 degree lower Alabama weather - I decided I was too stinky to go to dinner in public. I wanted something fruity and cold but Forrest didn't like my idea of drinking our dinner through a Tropical Smoothie straw so I made a salad. My mom's friend, Rhonda S., gave her this awesome strawberry salad recipe which she passed along to me and I have been meaning to whomp it up for a while.
Super Strawberry Salad
fresh strawberries (chopped into halves)
Super Strawberry Dressing
1 small package small strawberries
1 cup honey
3/4 cup red wine vinaigrette
pinch of salt / pepper
Pour all ingredients into a blender - and well...blend it until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours (you could make this dressing the night before and let it chill)
Who needs a strawberry smoothie when you can have this?!! So refreshing and sweet (but not too sweet) - it was the perfect summer time salad!
Surprisingly, it was also man-approved...Forrest is a fan!
*Hey Rhonda S.! I'm not sure if you read this blog or not but if you do - thank you for a delicious recipe, we both loved it!
It's Bachelorette o' clock!!! Salvie can't wait to find out which dude comes back to surprise Ashley - the suspense is killing him...
Yes, that is a long-sleeved shirt and blanket in July. Forrest keeps our house super cold...hot flash?!?!
