One of My Favorite Summer Salads

We have this salad almost every week since there is an abundance of tomatoes and cucumbers right now. Start with cottage cheese. Add tomatoes, black olives, purple onions, cucumbers, and snip a few fresh basil leaves on top. OR leave out the cottage cheese altogether and just use your favorite salad dressing. Sprinkle with fresh grated black pepper and you've got lunch!

Today I pickled!

Here is a sampling of the pickles I made today. My neighbor asked if I'd like to pick his cucumbers, so I managed to get 11 pints of bread and butter pickles, and 6 quarts of dills!

Plus plenty left over just for eating. I'm about pickled right now! Help, I'm turning into my Mother!
