salad

Welcome back all! I’m so glad you decided to drop by.

Remember my something out of nothing blog? Well, it’s about that time again. With summer being a busy travel and social time, we have been trying not to overstock and simply use what we have in the fridge so as to minimize waste. SO, wanting a salad but having no lettuce, I took a risk and this is what I came up with. I was pleasantly surprised how refreshing this was. So if you are in the mood for something other than the same old salad, I suggest you give this a try. NOTE: I made this just for myself as a meal. So if you are making this for a side, you might want to consider doubling this recipe.  Read the rest of this entry »

My husband LOVED this and even asked if there was more!

This meal all started because yesterday, I had a great day. I was being observed in the classroom for the first time by my supervising professor and the lesson went well. My supervisor seemed to really enjoy my teaching. My students were engaging in great thinking and one student even said I looked very nice. Then I went to campus and got to talk to my favorite professor (who I have not had in the past year). We chatted for nearly 45 minutes and she told me she was proud of me (WOW!). She also said she liked seeing my recipes on my facebook. Well, naturally, I went home after that comment and whipped up something new to share with everyone. So, Dr. Calabria, this one is for you.
