It’s my Sunday fab five with Mary Ann and Annie. This week let’s talk about A Summer Salad you will Love and More, including a Tuscan trip
SUMMER CORN TOMATO AND SALMON SALAD
We are fortunate to have a great seafood market Pier 46 in Templeton. When I spotted this summer corn, tomato and salmon salad in Epicurious, I knew I had to make it. By the way if you are in the area, they have the best Ahi Tacos in the world in my humble opinion.
SIX WAYS TO MAKE COOKING FOR ONE EASIER
Steve is commuting back and forth to Salinas three days a week. Those three days I eat well just “stuff”. I spotted this article in Cooking Light and thought it could easily be applied to cooking for two . I thought you all might find it helpful as well.
ATLANTA HOMES AND LIFESTYLES ON INSTAGRAM
If you have been reading this blog for long, you know I am a huge fan of Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles. This covered porch designed by Francie Hargrove , and photographed by DHC Photo made my heart skip a beat. You can follow Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles on Instagram here.
OUTFIT OF THE WEEK
I spotted this reversible (yes you heard me) quilted jacket at J Crew and thought you ladies would love it. I have a jacket that is similar to this that many of you wanted last season but it sold out quickly. This one is even better. I would probably not wear it belted. I think it might look too much like a robe. The black side would be great with the Ganni leopard turtleneck I have featured here many times. Mary Ann has the cute birdies (I need to try them to see if they will work for me) and I always love them on her. The pants are from Lyssee (more coming from them next week). The crossbody is also on sale.

BRENDA’S TUSCAN TRIP
In April, Brenda Coffee from 1010ParkPlace (she recently became my Ageless Style partner) is taking a group of eight women to Tuscany! In case you haven’t read her blog, this fabulous trip starts with two days in Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance. From there travel to your home for the weekf, a 15th-century historic villa and its gardens are one of the showpieces of Siena. Everyone will have their own private room and bath with views of the gardens and the surrounding countryside. Add day trips to Arezzo for one of the top cooking classes in Europe; a private trunk show in Pienza; wine tasting in Montalpuciano; shopping in Siena, and Brenda’s “AN INVITATION TO THE REST OF YOUR LIFE” workshop where you’ll discover what’s holding you back from becoming the woman who’s been waiting to be discovered.
Four of the eight spaces are already taken, so if you’re interested in going, email Brenda at [email protected] for a brochure.
That’s it from my desk this week. Thanks for reading A Summer Salad You Will Love and More. You can find all of my Sunday Favorites here. Now let’s pop over and visit Annie and Mary Ann for their favorites. Mary Ann is actually here visiting us, and Annie is in France.
