A picnic by the lake

Well, after all that exercise it was time for our picnic!

The feast included a tri-tip steak.

(Cooked perfectly, despite what you might think after looking at this photo)


And a most DELICIOUS Strawberry salad,


So delicious in fact, that I asked Sherry for the recipe, so I could share it with you.

Get a pencil, it’s complicated:

Start with a bowl of lettuce and some sliced strawberries.
Then add:
Candied walnuts (from Trader Joes)
Gorgonzola crumbles (Trader Joes)
and finally the most yummy cranberry dressing (from, you guessed it, Trader Joes!)

Okay – how great is that?

That is MY KIND of recipe! 😉


And if you also add to the feast Sherry’s MAGNIFICENT, WORLD FAMOUS pasta salad, sweet watermelon, fresh bakery rolls and a to-die-for strawberry custard angel food cake….


… you have the makings of a PERFECT PICNIC BY THE LAKE!
