Spring Forward

I really love spring daylight savings. I just love how light it stays so late in the day. Yes, it was rough waking up this morning. But work today FLEW by. I had a hard time believing it was already 5, because it so felt at least an hour earlier!

Last night I wound up eating the leftover lettuce from
Saturday Night. There are still leftover beans and meat, but I figured the lettuce would go bad faster. I normally don't use actually salad dressing and just use oil olive and vinegar but not last night.

See those huge chunks of feta in the salad? I did not add that. That was IN the dressing. So amazing. It was called Cindy's Kitchen's Greek with Feta and Black Olive Dressing. And its actual listed as a marinade too. I might have to use it like that. I did have it with a piece of focaccia, which is officially gone (it didn't last more than 24 hours in the apartment). But apart from the bread, it was just lettuce and dressing.

Not quite my normal salad. Normally I will buy the baby lettuce mix and top it with fruit and cheese. My fav is pears and Parmesan. Anyone else have a favorite salad combination?


P.S. I wasn't planning on watching Dancing with the Stars to night. I'm not a big fan. But when I heard Melissa was going to be on it... well now I HAVE to watch. I just want to make sure she's doing OK. (Prime scheduling on ABC's part by adding her)


  1. I love spinach and baby greens for lettuce and my favourite toppings would be peppers, cucumber, onions, olives and feta. Sometimes I like to add strawberries or dried cranberries too! I love so many dressings, but my favourites would be plain old balsamic vinaigrette or a raspberry vinaigrette! I also love caesar salad! I'm actually a big salad fan, I usually have it with every meal!

  2. thank you for all the WONDERFUL comments! in New Orleans we went to eat at "The Red Fish Grill" "Cafe Du Monde" and Gallatoire" and I forgot the other places :( It was all so delish!!! you are entered for the contest!

  3. Hey, about posting a video...I tried doing it your way but I still don't see it!! I must be blind lol :)

    And as for my favorite salad...I love dark greens with goat cheese, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado...and any other veggies really :) And as for the dressing: olive oil, balsamic vinegar, LOTS of dijon :)

  4. Mmmmm salads! I love the traditional caesar salad with Italian or Ranch dressing. If I ever got toppings, I don't mind eating cucumbers, onions, and green peppers.

    I also love chicken salads :)
