DONE! Salad Days 360-365 plus 3 days to spare
Tuesday, April 3 was John's birthday. We had a nice dinner, including a nice green salad. I even tried a new dressing... it was tasty enough.
Thursday, April 5, I made a Greek type salad with tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, yellow and orange bell peppers, cucumbers, feta cheese and about 1/4 cup of the sloppy joe meat we made the kids for lunch. That was pretty good. Not as good as a real Greek salad.
Friday, April 6, was the BIG day. I had made it... but I missed it. I am in the habit of salad now and completely missed the fact that I had eaten salad everyday for 365 days. I didn't even celebrate with a special salad. Instead, I ate a plain green salad. In fact, I didn't even remember that I had made it until I started writing this blog. LOL.
Saturday, April 7, we made sausage dogs for the family. It was a busy day, so I got a German potato salad from the store....
Sunday, April 8 was Easter. We had a fruit salad with fresh pineapple chunks, bananas, apples, strawberries, and grapes, mixed with a bit of coconut milk and pistachio pudding mix. It was tasty. Too bad I forgot H can't eat pistachios. She had to take Benedryl to sing in the Easter Concert.
Monday, April 9, I made Split Pea soup with the leftover Easter ham and had a green salad. So what do we do now? Well, I've decided to keep going. However, I've decided to expand it to soup and/or salad, and I'm going to do better at adding recipes. I'm not sure who is reading this, but at least then my kids can have some recipes as they all begin to fly the coop. I guess I will have to do better at keeping up too. Also, it's too bad I'm not better at the whole picture thing. Most definitely things taste better than they look.
