We had packed up our four bikes to the brim and loaded up one of the nonbike riding wives car with provisions for our fun filled weekend. A couple times a summer we try to take a ride a little farther than the local areas and this was one of our weekends for that.
Along with biking and eating we managed to convince Dana to take us on a boat ride on the lake.
Some of the others chose to do other things on Saturday, but Patty and I couldn't resist the opportunity to spend an afternoon on the lake with this bunch. Thanks Dana!
After our day of various activities we all gathered back at 320 for an evening of entertainment provided by the grand's, a fire in the fire pit provided by Bruce and a delicious meal provided by all of us. The star of the dinner was a salad that Angie brought over that I thought you might all enjoy. Several of us are in various stages of Weight Watcher's so this salad with only 2 pts. per serving was a big hit. The recipe makes a huge bowl that would probably last a long time in the refrigerator. Here's the recipe for this tasty salad that I have no idea what it is called.
Angie's WW Salad
2 cans of corn
2 cans of black beans
1 large green pepper chopped
1 large onion chopped
2 small can black olives
8ounces Fat free Italian dressing to taste
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and enjoy!
Many blessing to those of you that are busy getting your children ready to begin the new school year in public schools, private schools or homeschools. I remember what a busy time this is for young families. My prayers this week will be that we continue to have a choice where and how our children are educated.
Blessings dear ones,
