The Washington, D.C. metro area is experiencing very cold weather. I listened to the meteorologist  @ 5 AM reporting that today, the Arctic clipper could produce around 40 miles per hour winds. Tomorrow morning the entire viewing area and nearby points will wake to sub-zero temperatures. It’s the perfect time to remain at home and safely indoors.

Still nurturing our colds I didn’t feel much like cooking so I put together a fresh salad with fruits and warmed up leftovers from last night’s Sweet Onion Pasta. Total prep and cook time was ten minutes. the salad took ten minutes to assemble (made Monday) so all I needed do was to plate, add freshly sectioned naval orange and sprinkle with dried cranberries, raisins and shredded cheese.

my bib aprons

I love my aprons that I have collected over time. These bib aprons hold treasured moments and are quite dear to me.

Made of a strong cotton weave and brightly colored, they represent my varying moods, and I can don the appropriate one to be ready for cooking or baking.

fresh salad

Salads are one of the healthiest things we eat. Try using a variety of colors and add some fruit in with the greens and veggies.


Lovely Fresh Fruit

Just rinse, pat dry and slice. It’s a tiny banquet of flavor that is simple, elegant and perfect for your waistline. Fruits provide healthy benefits for the skin and give you energy, too. Even without any dressing the combination of strawberry, banana and orange was truly balanced.

Last night we added fresh fruit to our salad. For the dressing we drizzled red wine vinegar, olive oil and a dash of salt and ground pepper. I did sprinkle a little shredded mozzarella cheese on top and it was just right.
