Around the Barn

Last week I visited one of my best friends who lives in St. Augustine, Forida. It is such a beautiful town, I really enjoyed my time there. Here are some pictures from the barn where she keeps her horse and also cares for another horse.

Orzo Pasta Salad

For those end of summer BBQ's or year-round house parties -


Cook 1 box Orzo Pasta, drain and let it cool off. Once cooled, add in:

1 can red kidney beans

1 can small black olives

1 red onion (chopped)

Carrots and Celery (chopped)

Cheese, chopped in small squares ( I used Sharp Cheddar but you can add any kind you like)

2 tbsp Olive Oil

1-2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar


Mix well! Other ingredients you may wish to add: pepperoni, artichokes, green pepper, tomatoes


*Just a tip - add a bit of salad dressing before serving (not more than a couple tablespoons. Italian, Greek or a Vinegarette work well)
