Traveling Tuesday ~ Tiles

Travel Tuesday ~ I am going to have to spend this tuesday dreaming again.
Dreaming of the view of the beautiful tiled dome of the cathedral of Positano.
From every viewpoint ~ it is fabulous.
The sun reflects off of the tiles and that beautiful blue water.
Magical . . .

PhotoHunt ~Curse

The PhotoHunt for today is Curse . . .
I don't think that a fortune cookie is exactly a curse ~ that would be if something bad was predicted.
But I couldn't find anything else.

PhotoHunt ~ Lacy

My photos for 'Lacy' come from our day at the Chianti Cashmere Goat Farm . . . Where pretty lacy patterns are knitted with the yarn made from Cashmere Goats
Nora Kravis is the owner/goat farmer/ inn keeper/ beauty and brains behing the place.

The 'fur' of these special goats is combed, cleaned and then that fiber is spun into cashmere threads. Local Tuscan women do the knitting and create the Lacy patterns.

This is such a happy place ~ even the puppies look like they could contribute a little to the pile of fibers.

Nora also has a villa for rent . . . if you ever wanted to wake to the sound of goats and watch Tuscan sunsets ~ Sounds like paradise.

Cooking Light ~ August BarB~Q

For the Month of August, the Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club is caught up in the heat of summer ~ no matter where in the country we are. We have decided to have a Summer BBQ (don't forget the Off)
I found  This Recipe for Potato Salad Bites It looked like an interesting combination of potato salad and roasted potato skins.

Potato Salad Bites
12 small red potatoes, halved (about 1 1/4 pounds)
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup light sour cream
2 tablespoons minced fresh chives, divided
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons finely chopped drained capers
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Slice the potatoes in half and cover with olive oil. Roast cut side down @ 450 for 20 minutes. Allow to cool.

Using a paring knife, carefully cut a circle in the cut side of potatoes. Using a melon baller or small spoon, remove pulp from potato, leaving a thin shell.
Combine pulp, sour cream, 1 tablespoon chives, and next 5 ingredients (through pepper).
Evenly fill potato shells with filling; sprinkle with cheese and remaining 1 tablespoon chives.
Broil until they are toasted
In my opinion . . . it was a strange mix of lemon/caper/Parmesan. I think when I make them again (and I will) I will either do the lemon caper or the Parmesan.


Now . . . let's see what everyone else has brought for our August BBQ.
Jerry has a Farro Salad with Cherry Tomatoes, Onions and Almonds
Val is making a Berry Melody with Limoncello and Mint
Sara is making BBQ Pork Ribs
Shelby is bringing Clams Casino (clams with pancetta)
Y'all enjoy ~
