Pesto Pasta Salad
The Pioneer Woman

  • 8 oz. Rotini (corkscrew) pasta
  • 1/3 c. prepared Pesto
  • 1/2 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
  • 1/2 c. milk (for thinning purposes)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 head Romaine lettuce
  • 1 c. grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 c. black olives, halved
  • 4 oz. mozarella cheese, cubed
  • 4 tbs. pine nuts (optional)
  • Parmesan for sprinkling
Cook the pasta in salted water according to package instructions. Then drain it & rinse in cold water. Allow pasta to dry slightly, then toss in a bowl with 4 tbs. pesto. (Add more if you want the pasta to be more coated.) Add Parmesan & toss. Cover& refrigerate pasta cold. Make the dressing by whisking together mayonnaise, sour cream, & milk with the rest of the pesto. Add salt & pepper, taste, & adjust seasonings as needed. The dressing needs to be somewhat thin & pourable in order to coat the lettuce & pasta later. Set the dressing aside. If using pine nuts, toast them over medium-low heat in a small skillet until they brown slightly. Set them aside. To assemble, make bed of lettuce in large bowl, then add generous layer of pesto-coated pasta. Add tomatoes, olives, and chunks of cheese. Spoon a good amount of dressing over the top; it should be thin enough to seep down into the salad, not so thick it will stay on top of everything. Sprinkle salad with pine nuts & a little extra Parmesan & serve!
The Funny Bone

A passenger in a taxi tapped the driver on the shoulder to ask him something. The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up over the curb and stopped just inches from a large plate glass window. For a few moments everything was silent in the cab, then the driver said, ‘Please, don’t ever do that again. You scared the daylights out of me.’ The passenger, who was also frightened, apologized and said he didn’t realize that a tap on the shoulder could frighten him so much, to which the driver replied, ‘I’m sorry, it’s really not your fault at all. Today is my first day driving a cab. I have been driving a hearse for the last 25 years.’

Showroom Upgrade

north georgia replacement windows showroom 

Our showroom has undergone a lot of changes so far in 2013, and we are encouraged by the new layout and product selection currently on display. One of the biggest improvements has occurred within our door department. We have one of the larger selections of Therma Tru fiberglass doors on display. Catalogs are beneficial, but it is always more helpful for consumers to see and touch the products firsthand. That’s exactly what you can do when you visit us at our showroom in Roswell. We have over 30 doors on display, showcasing various woodgrain options, colors, and decorative glass styles. Likewise, we have additional glass samples in efforts to display the majority of decorative glass patterns offered by Therma Tru. Whether you’re in the market for a new door, or you need windows, please make plans to stop by our showroom and see us soon!

No Longer Bound

north georgia placement windows proudly supports no longer bound, an addict rescue operation

Rescuing addicts, regenerating men, and reconciling families. That’s the mission of No Longer Bound. Started by one of North Georgia Replacement Windows’ customers, Mike Harden, this 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization began in 1983. Harden returned home from a tour of duty in Vietnam with a strong cocaine addiction. Through his personal relationship and encounter with Jesus Christ, Harden was able to overcome his addiction and eventually was led to start No Longer Bound. The ministry has grown a lot over the past 30 years and currently has two campuses, one in Cumming, GA and the other in Bremen, GA. Each year, over 80 lives are transformed from drug and alcohol addiction. With this rehabilitation, the men also gain valuable work and life skills through the ministry’s various outreaches, including their Thrift Store and Cars4Recovery program.  For more information on NLB and how you can get involved, visit their website  at www.nolongerbound.com.

Energy Savings Tip

Newsletter - Quarter 3

Memorial Day is just around the corner and that means countless pools will be opening across the country. As much fun and entertainment that they provide, a pool is also a place to lose large amounts of energy- and thus money! 

Tip: Invest in a pool pump timer. This will limit the number of hours your pool pump operates, letting you determine when and how long to leave it on. This simple addition can help save money and energy over the course of the summer!
