Swiss Chard and Watermelon Salad

With the warm weather back watermelons are back in the grocery stores and in our garden swiss chard has started to appear so taking inspiration from my Watermelon-Cucumber Salad we made Swiss Chard and Watermelon Salad.

  • 4 cups of watermelon cut into bite size cubes
  • ½ a medium sized red onion cut into thin slices
  • 3 cups cucumber cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 tablespoons of mint (we used spearmint from our garden)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup feta cheese crumbled

  1. Place the first four ingredients into a bowl cover and place in the refrigerator
  2. When ready to serve
  3. In a separate bowl mix together the lemon juice and olive oil
  4. Gently toss the salad in the oil and lemon juice
  5. Top with crumbled feta and serve

We like this salad very cold and so have been known to place the salad dish on a bed of ice in a larger container.

From our table to yours

Grandma Jiggles

Up roarious laughter explodes from the shallow end of the pool.
Grandma you jiggle!
"Yep Grandma jiggles and I love my jiggles"
Laughter spouts once again from our granddaughter.
"Each jiggle is a treasure to me.  
I love my jiggles!"
Laughter is replaced with open curiosity.
"My jiggles remind me that I have three wonderful children 
that I love and who love me.  
That I love baking cookies with my spectacular grandchildren...
Like me she breaks in!
Yes like you.
I love your jiggles too Grandma!
The rest of the day was spent laughing and doing our new jiggle dance.

I am a Grandma who loves her jiggles!

Trinity Sunday

With the gifts of the Holy Spirit ensuring we are ready for the tasks the Lord is setting for us this year ~ God has our back!

When you hear the call how will you respond?
Will you be too busy.
Will you seek out someone else for the task.
Will you turn willfully deaf to the call of the Lord.
Will you believe yourself unqualified


Will you go forth boldly and answer 

Here I am Lord send me!
