Whew! Saturday, finally, but it will be a busy weekend. In an hour or two, DH and I will be traveling up to the Fox Valley for a family reunion/Christmas in July August gathering at my aunt and uncle's. The gathering was partially inspired by a visit from Oregon by my Great-Aunt Madolyn, the youngest of my paternal grandmother's sisters. Her daughter, Kathy, is traveling with her. Kathy is a weaver so I'm especially looking forward picking her brain seeing her at the gathering. I'm bringing this dish to pass. I used corkscrew pasta shapes and added some celery for crunch, an extra tomato, and, for the onion, I chopped half of a small red onion and three large scallions. I love this salad but can't make it at home or I'll eat it ALL.
Sunday will be full of chores, packing out the basement, and some work-work, if I can stand it. I know the work pace will slow a bit in about 2 weeks when I have a week-long conference in D.C. I may even be able to catch up with the excess stuff, if I plan it right. /sigh. My scheduler (an actual real person) is new at the job and is still getting the hang of it. Too many things to do, too few people. Something has to change or my level of sanity will change. heh.
