I’ll have a yummy salad, today!

NOW I know what I should do with a beet… I cannot wait to make this salad. I don’t know what’s taken me so long to find a good way to try my first beet….
Thank you, Alice. It looks scrumptious!

I have been eating a lot of salads lately and I am enjoying them very much. I like the fact that you can assemble whatever you like and what’s important (whatever you have on your fridge).  This salad in particular is one of my favourite as it has simple but very healthy ingredients in it. To make it I used  2 boiled beetroot (full of vitamins and minerals, low in fat and full of antioxidants), green beans (full of vitamin K), fresh spinach (important for skin and hair, provides minerals,protein, iron) and feta cheese ( good for your bones as a good source of calcium).

For the dressing:  I used good  organic Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and salt mixed them all together in a small cup until they are mixed well and  then pour it over the salad (this way the flavour will mix very well together).

So Many Cravings, So Little Time…

I’ve been craving so many flavors lately, so I thought I would throw put as many of flavors together in one dinner as I could.. real butter, garlic, spicey, asparagus and a cheese I haven’t tried before. This is what came out…

The whole reason I decided to start this blog is to have one place to put my thoughts, photos and experiments in one place.

I feel bad about my past cooking trials. The kids will put the guilt trip on me for many years to come for only having about six decent meals for them to grow up on.  Now they have to come to me to get a new adventure at the dining room table. THAT is why they will only “think” they are making me feel guilty…. the kids will drive 3 plus hours alone, or with a car full, just to eat whatever I want to make them, now that I like to cook for them.

So whether I grow it myself, or find it at the coolest farmer’s market on one of many road trips, I want to make the best dish possible.  I’m about enhancing not changing…. whatever it is in my world I am doing. Playing in the kitchen is just the most recent passion I love to share.

Hope to see you around….
