I want to be real with you when I write and share about food. I'm not one of those 'eat to live' kinda gals. Sure there are some things I consume primarly because they provide outstanding nutrition to my cells. But, even those things over time (aka: my morning green smoothie) grow on me to the point that I crave them if I'm forced to go without. Most foods I eat because I LIKE THEM....a lot. I enjoy certain textures, tastes and flavor combinations.
Midday Meals: Soups, Salads & Sides
A little different spin on the ‘same old’ is all we need sometimes to freshen the perspective. Routine gets old, laundry lacks its luster and let’s not even talk about weeknight evening ratrace to get it all done only to hit the pillow hard. Then, it all starts over the next day.
Well, recently, I was feeling the weight of routine. My spirits low and my ability to stir up enthusiasm for the little things waned. I’m certain my girls sensed the restlessness in my complacent attitude as it approached anxious by dusk each day.
Anyone out there possess an adventure seeking palate? I do, I do! I also have one living in my house, my six year old daughter! She loves anything with strong flavors, complex combinations or bold tastes. She welcomes very sharp cheeses, strong sauerkraut, roasted seaweed, sautéed garlic and onion on about anything and mouthfuls of pesto-drenched salmon.
