Don’t know what I’m doing having a cold salad on such a chilly, dreary day. Probably because I really do think salads are one of the easiest foods to prepare. Heating a soup would have taken much more effort. But when winter comes, it’s worth it.
So to make up for the chill of my lettuce, I had a hot beverage on the side
This is a Dandelion Herbal drink that Lauren brought me. Quote the website: “It is made of water-soluble extracts of roasted roots of dandelion, chicory and beets, and the grains of barley and rye.” Once brewed it tasted just like Pero to me. A bit roasty and earthy but also smooth and rich. Thumbs up for the convenient to-go pouch!
My salad was a wonderful mish of moshed up things: carrot, bell pepper, olive oil, VINEGAR (!), pecans, goat feta, sea salt and dried Frog Hollow ranier cherries
Jeff at Frog Hollow Farm sent me goodie box after meeting him at Foodbuzz this weekend (and the year before and the year before) – including a mix of dried fruits (their fuzzy fermented-y peaches are the best!) and pears! Thank you Jeff!
Sunny side up with toast on the side – our 100% whole wheat cranberry orange bread!
My mom uncovered this linen last weekend – thought I needed it for the blog! Sometimes I forget my name actually has 9 letters…
