We had a fun Day on Saturday. We met Big Daddy's twin brother, the artist and his family. They came into town from T-town to spend the weekend. Saturday we went to their hotel and spent the day at the pool. I would post pictures, but I will save myself the humiliation.
That evening we all met my mother in law at our local Mexican Restaurant and ate supper together. She had competed in the Rick and Bubba Tennis Super Summer Slam., as we all lay poolside. It was hot! I hear she did well.
Afterwards, my mom in law took the kids home to pick vegetables with Ernie in the his garden. I was delighted when she dropped them back off at home later with a bowlful of tomatoes in hand.
I had made a cucumber salad earlier in the day, so I just cut up the tomatoes and tossed them in as well. All three of my kids will fight over this salad bowl, like it was candy. They love it!
Cucumber & Tomato Salad
cucumbers and tomatoes, washed and cut into bite size pieces (you can also add onions)
*1/2 cup vinegar (any kind)
*1& 1/2 cup oil
*You can play with the amounts, I just pour and guesstimate
1 package of hidden valley buttermilk ranch dry seasoning mix
kosher salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
Mix all together and chill/marinate to allow the flavors to blend. Scoop with a slotted spoon.
This is a perfect summer salad. Delicious!
