On Monday when our three older kids came home from a three week trip to the Great Northwest and all points inbetween we had a Welcome Home dinner for them. They requested Stuffed Bread and a Summer Berry Salad. Aimee and I had lots of fun setting the table and making it a festive occasion. I used my white Totally Today dinner plates topped with Spode Blue Room salad plates. The cobalt water glasses I got years ago at Dollar General. I finally got to use my Pier One blue porcelain teapot napkin rings. I love the way the table turned out.

Summer Salad Recipe

3 Heads of Romaine Lettuce Chopped

1 pint of strawberries sliced
1pint of blueberries
1/4 red onion sliced very thin.
Toss all ingredients in a pretty bowl and top with Brianna's Blush Salad Dressing.

I forgot to take a picture of the Stuffed Bread and since we never have leftovers no pic.

I make a salad similar to that one....we love strawberries and purple onions and blueberries (hey, who doesn't?). We used to make stuffed bread , but now that I have to be gluten free I tend to make lunches and dinners we can all eat ;-)
