This Spring we made a quick trip to Seattle. We only spent two full days in Seattle, but we were able to pack a lot into those days. My favorite thing we did during our trip was a visit to the Chihuly Garden and Glass Gallery.
My first experience with Chihuly glass was in Las Vegas. I fell in love with the ceiling in the lobby at the Bellagio. The next time I stumbled upon Chihuly glass was on our tour at the Makers Mark Distillery in Kentucky. They have a ceiling full of beautiful Chihuly glass flowers.
While researching things to do in Seattle, I found the Chihuly Garden and Glass gallery. It was right next to the Space Needle, so I put it on our list.
O-M-G! You MUST put this on your bucket list. It was the most AMAZING art exhibit I've ever seen.
I am walking you through the gallery in this post. The photographs don't do it justice. I could have spent the entire day here. So incredibly beautiful.
Need a delicious side dish for your upcoming 4th of July cookout? This Orzo Salad would be perfect! Orzo, roasted red peppers, capers, artichoke hearts, olives tossed in a quick homemade lemon olive oil dressing. SO colorful and super simple to make. It makes a ton, so it is great for a party. We served it the other day with some grilled pork tenderloin and it was perfect!
This Orzo Salad can be served warm or cold. We ate it both ways and it was great either way. We actually ate it warm for lunch and cold for lunch the next day. It is one of those dishes that gets better as it sits. It has more time for the dressing to soak into the pasta and veggies. Give this a try at your next cookout. Everyone will thank you!
