Summer Squash Salad

My husband and I guzzled this summer squash salad last night at dinner.  We had a massive feast of vegetables and salmon (the boys picked at dinner, though did just fine all in all).  Along with the salad, we grilled the salmon, eggplant, red peppers and broccoli.  Fresh fruit for dessert –cherries, apricots and strawberries.

It was a lot of fun.  Making it even better was the fact that my husband and I went grocery shopping together in the afternoon (love doing that with him) while the boys were over at Josh’s house running through the sprinkler.

I had a great live interview today with Dr. Alvin Jones on WCBQ-AM 1340/WHNC-AM 890.  He was just a total sweetheart.  Said he was going to come over to my house and knock on the door for some cookies.  A really great guy!
