Salad Talk


I got up this morning with the thought that I wanted to start the new month off right with a new post on my blog. The trouble was that I couldn’t think of anything to talk about. LOL. I have some thoughts about future posts, but those thoughts haven’t gelled fully in order for me to write about those things. So I just decided to let it go, because I knew that something would pop into my head even if it is just one of my random posts. Fortunately, my inspiration came in the form of lunch!

This is the salad that I had for lunch and it was SO tasty!



Every since I’ve been having to study so much each day for school, I have sometimes ended up skipping lunch or eating whatever is around. But that way I ended up either starving or sick from eating something weird. Lol. So over the last few weeks I’ve been trying to make a better effort at making lunch for myself. I always eat breakfast, usually cereal or oatmeal, and then I make a decent dinner for me and Brit Boy, but I was neglecting lunch. I knew that I had to do better when I found myself eating dinner like a cavewoman because I was famished. Lol. It was not pretty. So I decided to rescue my poor stomach and make a more regular lunch for myself. You’ll be happy to know that I’ve learned my lesson! It’s all good now. I’m remembering how I was raised ;-)

You know I love blogging about food, so I’ll share what it consisted of.

My ingredients: mixed lettuce, scallions/spring onions, a few chunks of cheddar cheese, and some beets on the side. I splashed it with a little bit of vinaigrette dressing after I took the photo.

This whole salad talk has got me to thinking about a conversation that I had with my sister on Skype the other day. We were talking about our love of salads and she said that she could eat salad everyday if she had to. She knows how to lay out a salad! We’re gonna have to have a nice salad together on my next visit home :-)

I will say this...I could definitely eat a salad just like the one I had today several times a week. I do like this lunch thing...I wonder what I can have tomorrow????

Until next time...

Sissym,
I'm glad we share a love for salads! And yeah, even though I blog about cooking and like it, I don't like it every day. I need time in between to recharge my cooking batteries.LOL. Have a great day. Hugs!
