PASTA SALAD...READY TO SERVE, READY TO LOVE!

 
I don't know about you, but after the week draws closer to Friday night, I am ready to kick back and relax! That does not mean that dinner will not be homemade however. What goes better with a glass of Pinot, then a cold pasta salad and a crusty loaf of homemade French bread? Linger in the kitchen and find out how everyone's week went? What plans do they have for the weekend? It's playtime! We could eat this until the cows come home......
