Annual Wednesday Night Concerts on the Beach...

Have begun once again! Last two weeks were cancelled because of the weather. It has been and is a GLORIOUS day! As close to perfect weather as you can get. Sunny, cotton ball clouds, nice breeze, no humidity and temps not too hot & not too chilly. I had the windows & doors open all day. A bit of heaven on earth.

I made a kick ass pasta salad, the best pasta salad I've ever made to go with left over fried chicken for dinner here on the beach. We've got some beers. I've got "The Unlikely Lavender Queen" to read and I've got a hot pretzel. I'm with Vic & a friend is stopping by. Life is good at the moment!

teri, I had that pretzel and enjoyed every bite! There's nothing on the Jersey Shore like Sandy Hook - that's it for me!

Lisa, it was simply amazing! We stayed until past dark and got to watch a huge orange red moon rise! It's one of my favorite places on earth!

You're seriously going to make us ask for that pasta salad recipe?! :) Sounds like the perfect evening to me. Savor!

Jo said...

Lizzi, I think it was the best time I've had yet at these concerts!

I'm really bummed that my sd memory card with a bunch a pics on it from last night isn't working in the computer so I've got to find another way to get them off the card so I can make an album. There are some amazing pics on there!

Lol Tera! I totally just wiped it up. I used cold mini pasta bow ties, chopped green olives, chopped cukes, diced red onions, chopped mushrooms, diced peppers (red, green, yellow, orange), crunched up bacon (12 slices)halves cherry tomato's, halved small mozz. cheese balls, diced roasted red peppers, a few healthy sprinklings of shredded parm. cheese well tossed/blended with a dressing of red wine vinegar, a couple of cap fulls of balsamic vinegar, a cap full of extra virgin olive oil, 2 tables spoons spicy brown mustard, garlic, pepper, parsley flakes & basil flakes and a generous helping of grated parm. cheese.

Wish I lived closer to the shore to enjoy that. It sounds like so much fun!!

I look forward to it. It's just a nice evening out at the beach at one of my fave places in the world (and I feel the most beautiful spot at the Jersey Shore along with Cape May and Tuckerton).
