    Default ...and Other Salads

    I actually love salads, they are one of my favorite things to eat. The picture is of the salad I ate for lunch today and it was delicious! Why don't I eat one of these every day? I love them, but I seldom make them and end up throwing away about as much salad makings after they go bad as I actually end up eating. Am I too lazy to make salads everyday? I don't think so, as I am not normally a lazy person. It is because my knees hurt so bad when standing still on the concrete floors, whereas when I stay on the move the pain is less? Maybe... It is much quicker to put a frozen Healthy Choice, Lean Cuisine or Marie Callendar in the microwave and sit down until it is done; but, not nearly as good as a fresh made salad or as good for me. From now on, I will make a concerted effort to make at least one fresh salad per day--I love them and they are good for me! I can move my cutting board to the table, sit down and start chopping!

    I have purchased the bagged salads, but they aren't near as good or fresh to me...and doesn't last near as long. Plus I can buy a whole head of romaine or green-leaf lettuce for from just less than a dollar to about $1.35...the bagged stuff is several dollars for about a quarter to a third as much lettuces as a whole head...and the bagged stuff always tastes kinda "processed" to me, maybe because of the plastic bags.

    But, in a pinch, I have used them and probably will again...but, I really want fresh, non-packed in plastic ingredients.

    I am happy that since I resolved (yeah, I know it's only been 2 days) to make and eat a fresh salad every day, this is today's lunch:

    Yesterday's lunch salad had a 5-oz can of albacore tuna on it along with Newman's Own Olive Oil & Vinegar dressing. Today's dressing is Newman's Own Light Honey Mustard.

    Yeah, I know that no one really cares, but, it is making me "accountable" to pretend they do.

    No, no bacon...I would like bacon, but I don't cook bacon cuz I don't like the mess it makes on the top of my stove. Hormel does make some packaged bacon bits that aren't too bad...Name:  bacon bits.jpg

Size:  18.0 KB that some folks like to pass off as "bacon bits"...but I have had the Hormel ones before and they just have a little taste of plastic on them from being package in a plastic bag. I seem to be kinda sensitive to the taste of stuff packaged in plastic bags.

    Default Re: Cucumber. Salad

    Happy to say that my run on eating salad at least once a day is still intact...I think that in my case it is having the lettuce already chopped up, washed, and spun dry is the key...then I only have to pull out and chop up a roma tomato, a tiny cuke or cut a piece from a larger cuke, a radish and slice off a bit of onion. I find that my chopped lettuce lasts about 3 days in the fridge in the spinner and a large head of green leaf or romaine lettuce lasts for two spinner fulls. Boil up 4 eggs at a time and then it only takes a couple of minutes to throw it all together.
