What am I reading now? Loyalty's Web (Joyce DiPastena)
Annd. . . what do I think so far? Normally I don't read books with words like knave, battlement or breeches in the text, but I really enjoyed this one! There were so many subplots to follow and twists in what I expected that my motivation to read it was effortless. This is full of greed, power grabbing, intrigue, herbs, treason and loyalty. Oh and romance--yay! Of course, it's the whole mix of the above that made it a can't-put-down sort of read.
Shrimp Salad Topper
I know you're drooling right now. I am too. Just one look at the picture is all it takes--Pavlov would be so proud.
This is a delicious salad for a quick meal. Just combine these ingredients and serve over your favorite mix of greens.
1 1/2 pound cooked pealed shrimp
1 stalk chopped celery
1/4 c. onion
3 Tablespoons dried basil (or 1/4 cup chopped fresh)
20 Kalamata olives, halved
1/4 c. mayo
2 Tablespoons white vinegar
3 c. cherry tomatoes (halve them if they're large)
See, here's proof--I don't only do desserts. Enjoy!
