4000 miles, Winter salad, MacGyver

1. My little friend was napping when a far-away friend phoned. The timing couldn't have been better and we were allowed a nice, long chat that ended with, "I'll see you in March!".
2. I'm addicted to this wonderful salad. I've eaten one for lunch every day this week. (My only adjustment is to substitute toasted pecans for the sesame seeds and pine nuts since I already have them on hand.)
3. Poor husband! He kept the old dryer working for 30 years and now the new one is already acting up. Turns out that wire from a burnt-out set of Christmas lights comes in handy when you need it : ) Which backs up his argument for hording electrical junk.


  1. Gosh he's a handy guy, that husband of yours!

    Thank for the link to the salad. I've bookmarked it--the kids are going to love it. :)

  2. That salad looks and sounds good. I make something similar with apples or pears and sprinkle blue cheese on it - walnuts or pecans usually. I love the dressing so much that I put it on all salads now.
