Colorful salad

A delicious dinner to end a delicious day!  We ate a big colorful salad for dinner tonight, along with peas, lima/butter beans, apples, pears, and rolls.  Gotta keep the taste buds entertained!

The salad had baby spinach, mixed greens, bite sized chunks of apple, pear, and carrot, and dried cranberries tossed in.  Top with homemade balsamic vinaigrette, and enjoy!  Sooo yummy!

I think it's a good night to snuggle up with my honey and watch some TV in our little nest.  During winter, we always set up a room with a slim line radiator to keep us warm.  We can retreat to our nest to watch TV, read, whatever.  Since we're hosting out-of-towners a few times this winter, we set up in our master bedroom this year so we wouldn't crash any of the other rooms that may need to house people.

With any luck, tomorrow will be a little more productive than today.  Today was relaxing, yes, but productive, no.  Unless you count blog reading, TV watching, and napping as productive. ;)  Good night all!

Good call on the salad, I love adding fruit to salads, so yummy!

Hmm.. that sounds like a good salad! I have (almost) all the ingredients - I think I'll try it :D

P.S. Blog reading + Napping = very productive activities in my book (and tv watching can be too, if it's discovery or NatGeo)

Michelle, thanks! I love the mix of flavors that you can only get with fruits and veggies together.

Tina, hope you enjoyed the salad as much as me! It's become one of my new fave combos. The tv was HGTV; I think that counts as semi-productive maybe.

Thank you both for visiting!! :)
