recipe girl goes wild...

I lack the "throw something together and eat gene". I need a recipe to cook or at least an idea of what I should put in a dish. I cannot open the fridge door, pull things out, throw it in a pan and call it dinner. just can't! and that's okay! UNTIL NOW!

I was feeling like a chef salad. you know, lettuce, hard boiled egg, turkey, ham, few other veggies thrown in and dressing and boom ya got a meal. on this particular day though I was out of lettuce. yup, none! so I went with what I had and came up with this delicious dish. the first time I just winged it and the second time I measured everything out. wild yes....but not crazy!

out of lettuce chef!, salad

1 cup celery
1 cup carrots
1 cup sugar snap peas
1 cup jicama
1/2 cup broccoli
1 ounce of ham
1 ounce of turkey
1 egg
1/4 cup soya nuts
1 tblsp. sunflower seeds
2 tblsp. poppyseed dressing or what ever floats you boat

chop, chop, chop. toss in a bowl. mix and DONE! chew, chew, chew.

if you are concerned about getting your veggies in I think this would about cover it. I also think that whatever combination of veggies is in your fridge would work too.

thanks kath for the toe concern. I will be running tomorrow! I just might be limping.

and thanks to kim for her medical expertise! will I see you THIS time? last year's excuse was a fire or something? lame!

and while we are doing the whole gratitude thing....

thanks to my chum. you are a peach and a plum! I needed to laugh and laugh we did. our short, non productive art day was tons of fun. I love that what happens in the studio stays in the studio. thanks for an awesome start to what turned out to be a pretty decent day.
