Salad #4 + Toddlers

I know it is late and this will most likely be a very disjointed post, but I have a very good excuse - TODDLERS. A few of my sisters are still making babies. As a matter of fact, a sister-in-law should present us with another one in June.

Today, I got up, delivered my Monkeys to school and went to watch E-man and Jack-Jack - the progeny of sisters #2&3. These are most excellent little people, however, little people take a whole different kind of concentration and I am major out of practice. We had a good day and my Mamala spent much of the morning with us. However, at the time of this post, I am completely wiped out.

Let's get to the salad. I did not make the salad today. I did show up with a grapefruit, but my most beautiful mother brought the salad.

She put together mixed greens (get them in a bag at the store) broccoli slaw, dried cranberries and sun flower seeds. We had to dig for dressing, but sister#2 had some decent Italian. Very good salad - savory and sweet.

Just a note about broccoli slaw: This stuff is awesome. It is the inside of a broccoli stalk shredded with some cabbage and carrots. You can put it in all sorts of stuff.

  1. YES!!! I love adding broccoli slaw to salads. It not only adds bigtime crunch and cancer-fighting benefits---and surely we all want to do whatever we can to avoid that---but it's just delicious in the salad. Sounds like a great day, actually. And let's just say I can relate. Even teens can be exhausting---when there are several demanding your undivided attention at once, more so than toddlers, I find. But the way I look at it, it's such a blessing that children of any age actually WANT your attention, it's worth it. (And a glass of wine always helps...)---Silence
