Game winning


I'm back! I bet most of you didn't know I was even gone - you just gotta love the new "schedule a future post" aspect of blogger. Now you never know if I'm here or there! It's good to be home, but it's hardly relaxing. And I don't expect relaxing for a couple more weeks, although I did get an email today which indicated that at least when relaxation does occur I'll have a couple weeks of it!

So the rules of the game are pretty simple - create a quick, easy, light summer dinner for one. While Thatboy is more than happy with a salad dinner, I don't think he really appreciates a salad meal the way I do. The crisp apples, crunchy almonds, sweet cranberries, spicy onions, and tangy cheese just tell me to pass go and collect $200. In other words, this one is a sure fire winner.


Cran-apple Salad
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 cup mixed greens
1/4 cup dried cranberries
sprinkle of blue cheese crumbles
1/2 green apple, diced
1/4 onion, sliced
favorite salad dressing

1) Combine almonds, greens, cranberries, blue cheese, apple, and onion.
2) Drizzle with dressing and toss.

  10. Thatboy prefers his salads without dressing - it's something he's done ever since I met him when he used to eat a bowl of lettuce every day in the dorms.

    I don't really measure, but I give it a couple light swings over the salad. I call it a "drizzle" but that's not an exact cooking term. It's probably around a tablespoon.
