So this past week I spent with the cupcakes was wonderful and everyone made great recipes. This cowboy caviar recipe is different and it is delicious! Molly's Summertime Cowboy Caviar 1 can shoepeg corn-DRAIN 1 can blackeyed peas -DRAIN 2 avacados -cube 2/3 cup of chopped cilantro- note-my husband hates cilantro so I make his without 2 bunch of green onions- cut up small 1 cup of tomatoes- Molly used heirloom tomatoes but any tomatoes would be good Dressing for this is 1/2 cup virgin olive oil 1/3 cup red wine vinegar 2 cloves garlic- mince fine 1/2 t. salt pepper to taste 1 tsp cumin Combine ingredients- add dressing. We ate crackers (rice), tortilla chips and Mary's (more) crackers from Costco....it is hard not to eat the whole batch by yourself! --------------------------------------------------
It was wonderful to have such a beautiful view out the window as we sewed along...
Speaking of delicious things- Molly made these broiled tomatoes with herbs for dinner one night and they too were wonderful...this time of year it is fun to eat the produce that is fresh....
This whole evening was slider night and you can see how cute the table was dressed...along with a new dress (clothespin dress) for each girl made by Molly....so cute and dinner was so nice too
Mel finished her entire scrappy alphabet for the trunk show for Out of the Box with Easy Blocks book....fun and cool with complementary colors!
Here is a photo of my Granddaughter's bug quilt as it was coming along...I now have about double this amount of blocks and I used all dumb dots by Michael Miller...great fun and it is going to be pretty...imagine, a pretty bug quilt!
Susan brought each of us a chunk of New York fabric which is wonderful since I am starting a BIG APPLE quilt with me as the star.... :0)

What a great sounding recipe, I've never heard of shoepeg corn before. Is that a brand name?

Love the fabric from New York city.

Looks like you all had a fun time again.

Thanks for sharing the pictures and stories.
