A sunny, Sunday afternoon spent at the lake - totally relaxing.
Except for the time that the kids were tubing of course. I would call that thrilling - Not so much relaxing.
Why does being around the water make me hungry? I didn't tube or fish or do much of anything except relax and for some reason, I was exceptionally hungry that day - just because I was NEAR the water apparently.
We had ribs for dinner and I had made a new pasta salad recipe from my taste of home magazine to go along with our meal. I loved the avocado and the artichokes in the salad but it was a little heavy on the lime juice. I will make this again but cut back on the lime just a little next time.
Avocado and Artichoke Pasta Salad
1/2 pound spiral pasta
14 ounce can artichoke hearts, drained
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 ripe avocado, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons lime juice
1 Tablespoon minced cilantro
1 1/2 teaspoons lime zest
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Top with cilantro.
Ribs and pasta salad and a day on the lake - happy summer friends.
