mini WEDGE salad

I love a Wedge Salad. It’s a mountain of cool, crisp, goodness. Too often however if I order one in a restaurant it’s just plain too much salad! I either eat it all and then am overly full when my meal comes, or I end up leaving half a salad on my plate…feeling wasteful. I […]

Soup-a-palooza couldn’t have landed on a better day! After a crazy weekend of driving all over in horrible weather and then the last two days spent in Med Centers or Dr. offices because my son did a number on his arm snowboarding. I am ready for a warm bowl of soup, my blankie, and a […]
