Taking a quick study break to post my new favorite breakfast/snack:
1.) crave hearty, raw comfort food
2.) crave cold salads and warm roasted fall vegetables
As I’ve mentioned before, I rarely eat salads in the winter months, it just never sounds good! No fresh produce, limited affordable organic greens, no appetite for cold food.
Now that fall is here, and warm weather is almost over, I am eating salads like it’s going out of
If you are not into giant leafy green salads or perhaps crave something more filling, I think you will enjoy this recipe as much as I do! It is easy to make, keeps well in the fridge, and makes a perfect October afternoon picnic sammy.
Makes about 2 1/2 cups
The photograph of this creation is just a mess and does not do and justice for this awesome salad.
But trust me, you’ll love it!
What are you doing on this Tuesday afternoon?
I’m getting ready for work (yuck) and then going out with a friend later. Had a long day at school and now I just want to relax for the next half hour!
Half of a leftover bean burrito
Half of a leftover espresso fudge brownie
a few too many servings of pistachios
8 ounces of raspberries
a handful of grapes
Confession: I HATE typical salads. You know, the house salads with ice burg lettuce, cold tomatoes, cucumber, and carrots. Seriously, just thinking about it makes me want to barf! How boring!
I always tell people… “if I’m going to eat a salad, it has to be really interesting”, like this one:
This salad beast was amaze. It was everything I was craving and then some, I was really impressed with myself.
Ever since I bought this red cabbage on sale, I have been craving a sweet & nutty salad like this one.
Today, after school, Scott and I are taking a PAID trip to Whole Foods (yes, we live 45 minutes away from the nearest WFs). Basically, a (quite popular) vendor at our FM sells ridiculously good salsa but apparently isn’t a good sales rep. So, Scott told him that he knows how to get his salsa into big businesses like Whole Foods and he was totally up for it. Hopefully Whole Food is interested so my boy can make a nice chunk of the salsa profit! But more importantly, it’s all about helping each other out. One of my favorite things about working at the FM is the vendors we work with. We all look out for each other and help each other when possible, it’s cute. Boy, I wish I could say that about my day job, huh? 😉
Remind me of anything I need to pick up at Whole Foods/ Trader Joe’s!
