Steak and wing sauce salad (man salad)

Man salad.  This is a salad that a man could love, not some frilly girly salad.

It features steak, the flavors of buffalo wings, and fried onions.

It’s the perfect salad for date night in.

According to hubby, the fried onions add just the right touch of “unhealthy” to make it enjoyable to eat a salad for dinner (and the baby spinach provides enough nutrition to make up for it).

He was thrilled with the flavors and textures, and pronounced it a satisfying all-in-one dinner.

Summer Salad Round Up

It’s the last weekend of summer, traditionally the time for the last bar-b-que of the season, so I’m rounding up all my summer salad recipes for your convenience.

My weekend plans are super fun!

I’m driving out to the country to pick up our share of a cow from the meat processing plant.  I’ve never done this before, so it should be an adventure.

This city girl has never been to a processing plant.

We’re stocking the turtle pond my husband built in the backyard.

This city girl has never had a pond in her yard.

Adventures in motherhood beckon. [Read more…]

Marinated Onions – Recipe

This picture of Marinated Onions was the very first food photo I ever got a complement on.

I still love the photo.  Even more, I love those onions.

I crave these, and I should definately make them more often! [Read more…]

Pea Salad Recipe – Y’all This is Good Stuff!

I made some Pea Salad from all those hard boiled eggs I’ve been playing with.   If there is a dish that tastes like summer to me, this just might be it.

Y’all, I have a confession to make.  Under normal circumstances, I just can’t follow a recipe exactly as it’s written.  I just can’t!   But occassionally, I find something that is just too perfect to mess with.

Paula Dean’s pea salad is just that — perfect.  But I messed with it anyway.

We had ours with a lovely leftover grilled porkchop (almost as good as bacon).  Otherwise, I would be tempted to add about 1/2 a cup of crispy crumbled bacon to the dish.  But oooooohhhh… mmmm…. yum!  [Read more…]

Salad according to my kids

My kids have a warped understanding of what goes in a salad.  They also have the strange belief that salad is my favorite food.

(it’s not.  that’s a tie between cheese enchiladas and chocolate mousse cheesecake. don’t make me choose!)

Since they were making barfing noises at MY salad for the day, I decided to ask them what they think makes a good salad.

Lettuce

Ketchup
