Buttermilk Basin Summer Blog Hop {Day 11}

Today is our day of the Buttermilk Basin Summer Blog Hop!  We have been following along and just LOVE everyone’s adorable designs!  If you haven’t joined in yet check out Buttermilk Basin’s Blog for all the info.

This is our first summer here in the Pacific Northwest and we are absolutely loving it!  The days are long and not too hot but even if it does get hot there are plenty of giant evergreens to provide shade.

Here is our favorite summer potluck recipe…

And Kathy has put together a perfect little summer sewing project for the hop.  Just look at this adorable little piece of watermelon (another potluck favorite)  it looks good enough to take a bite out of!

    Hi Robbi, Thank you for your comment. This is a recipe that was given to me about 25 years ago from a dear friend. It was a recipe we liked so I never questioned the name. The recipe does use ginger which is one of the many ingredients in the spice blend known as curry so maybe that it where it comes from???? I am sure if you wanted to make it with a little curry powder added into the dressing it would be great.
    Let me know if you try it.
    Have a great day,
