Koolest Cooler, New finds, Great Side Dish Recipe

Well I was flea marketing a few weeks back and found the Koolest Cooler out there...

Look at the graphics on this baby. I think I may have to reprint this in fabric.

The colors are great.

It was in great condition and very well cared for..

It will be going with me to all baseball games, soccer games and anything else that requires a cooler

Super summer fun!

I also found a ton of LARGE Blue Glass canning jars.. They have become my new collection and I LOVE them!

These vintage TV trays I found at an estate sale.. they are getting a make over.. more to come on that.

I also found this sweet little statue.. She had to come home with me.

And if you are looking for a super yummy side dish for this weekend.. Look NO further...This is so good and super fast and easy. Here is what you need:
4 cups of thinly sliced zucchini
3 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges
1/4 cup of green onions
set all of these aside in a bowl.

In a bowl or jar with a tight lid add the following and shake super well and then pour over the tomatoes, onions and zucchini.
3/4 cup of red wind vinegar (found with regular vinegar)
2/3 cup of vegetable oil
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of dried basil
Dash of 1/8 teaspoon pepper. 
Cover all this with a tight lid as mentioned above and shake up really well.. Then pour over the tomatoes, onions and zucchini and coat real well.  Store in the Frig for two hours, mix up well before you serve.. It is so so yummy!
Have a super fun 4th!  See you agian next week.
