the weekend.


Spent some time with very dear friends, stayed in jammies til noon, went for a sunny walk up main street, nursed a bit of a hangover, met my brand new nephew, sat out in the sunshine, did crafts, cooked tasty food, felt overwhelmed by life and then felt settled and happy again.

We stopped at a farm market on our way home from visiting family and bought delicious veggies. Dinner was easy and tasted like summer.

Smoked Paprika, Lemon and Yogurt Potato Salad

6 cups fingerling potatoes
2 cups green beans, cut into 1.5" pieces
1 cup asparagus, cut into 1.5" pieces
1 cup corn (I use frozen)
1 orange pepper, chopped small
2 green onions, finely chopped
1/2 cup grated asiago cheese

1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh dill
2 tbsp mayo
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp dijon
zest and juice of one lemon
1 clove garlic, grated or finely chopped
1 tsp smoked paprika
salt and pepper to taste

Cook potatoes in boiling water until done, cut into 1" chunks. Boil beans and asparagus until lightly cooked, submerge in cold water to retain bright greens!
In a large bowl toss together the potatoes, beans, asparagus, corn, pepper, onions and cheese.
In a small bowl whisk all the dressing ingredients together and pour over the veggies and combine.
