Awesome Salad and Quesadillas

For some reason I love sharing recipes and what I eat.  This salad doesn’t look like much but it is full of yumminess!  It’s mixed greens, pineapple, avocado, and sweet vidalia onion.  I always buy and use vidalia onions because regular onions make me cry lol.  The dressing is 1 tablespoon of olive oil drizzled on…

Salmon For Lunch & Healthy Relationships

I have had a terrible cold for the last five days.  It’s beginning to clear up and my appetite is returning to normal.  I made this wonderful lunch today.  I made roasted asparagus and salmon on a bed of spinach.  I used olive oil, salt, and garlic powder to bake the salmon in foil.  Then…

Late Summer Musings

We recently enjoyed a late summer walk at Thomas Darling Nature Preserve.  It’s a groundwater-fed glacial wetland. …

Little Buffalo & Reeds Gap

Over the weekend, we traveled to two State Parks that we’ve been to before.  At Little Buffalo, we visited the Butterfly Garden and saw some amazing butterflies.  A lady volunteer told us to look under the leaves of the milkweed and I found the cutest little monarch butterfly caterpillar. Then we traveled to Reeds Gap…
