My favorite yard ornament

I rescued this chair about 10 years ago, it was being thrown out by one of my neighbors. It was a teal blue and the seat was missing but I just loved the style... The basket fits perfect just add your favorite flowers. Looks great with a big pumpkin in it at fall time.....

Shrimp and Orzo Salad

This is one of my favorite summer salads!! Shrimp, Orzo, cherry tomatoes, black olives, bermuda onions, feta cheese, fresh cilantro  and a lemon, olive oil and crushed black pepper dressing. So delicious!!

3/4 box Orzo cooked,
1 can medium black olives sliced,
apprx 50 large shrimp chopped,
1 container cherry tomatoes sliced,
1 wedge of feta cheese crumpled,
1/2 medium red onion chopped and 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro.

Dressing: 1/2 cup olive oil,
1/4 cup lemon juice fresh ground black pepper to your taste.
Put all ingredients in a large bowl and toss with dressing. Garnish with lemon and a piece of cilantro!
Grilled Chicken can be used instead of shrimp....
