Full of Beans

Tomorrow is Hannah's birthday party/ bonfire. It's sure to be a busy one, as was today, so if you don't hear from me tomorrow, that'll be why.

I hadn't planned on making a bean salad for tomorrow, but my visit to the garden this morning made me think otherwise. Three Bean Salad was a favorite of my parents and made an appearance at almost every summer picnic. Mom used canned beans, but today I used garden fresh ones instead. My Darling is a fan of this dish but my brothers in law are not so much so it gives my sisters a chance to enjoy the treat without making it themselves.

I had three small berry pickers here for the day. I sent them to the ragged blueberry patch while I picked beans and they each picked a box of sour berries to munch. They were quite pleased with themselves.

  1. Fresh bean salad... Oh I want some. It's favorite of mine, but not so much the rest of the family. We are having a BBQ at Julie's this evening for Nick's 15th birthday, Monique's 25th, Monica graduation, Kaleb going back to college, Elijah doing well in Water Polo and any thing else we can think of...Just want a party. I was request to make my potato salad, and choc.chip cookies...which I am.

  3. That's right, I was supposed to take some left over bean salad home. I forgot. It was delicious.

    We are out of blueberries here. Hope you have enough to share. I ate your zucchini already.

    1. My blueberry patch is rather sad and I haven't spent much time down there at all. I don't even know how many berries there are.
