Today I created a salad, made a favorite dish, and discovered a new dessert. Then, naturally, I called my mother to tell her what I had done. :-)
She, in turn, told me what she had done for dinner. It sounded unique and exciting.
We have lots of these conversations. However, I, for one, know that knowledge is fleeting, especially when I haven't slept the night before. So, we are going to write down our accomplishments to share with each other.
Menu for today:
Spanish Noodle Skillet (from the More With Less Cook Book): my tried and true hamburger standby
Rainy Day Fall Salad: recipe follows
Apple Pudding (from the Betty Crocker Cook Book): it was easy and amazingly good!
Rainy Day Fall Salad
Put fresh spinach in a bowl. Top with a handful or so of shredded cheddar cheese and a chopped apple or two. Cut a couple slices of bacon into little pieces and fry, cool and add to top. I put the salad on the plates and added a light olive oil dressing to the individidual servings.
The above menu was eaten by my husband, my three year old and my almost two year old.
