~Chef's choice~

Ok, I love salads!  ....  But not the dry, tasteless pale iceberg lettuce that some buffets offer, with a yellow film over the dressing and garbanzo beans that look like they came from your grandmother's food storage~~that is not my idea of a good salad~

Cutler's Cookies, our local hometown sandwich/soup/salad deli now makes a spinach salad with strawberries, mandarin oranges, slivered almond and grated parmesan cheese thrown in.  These ingredients are upon a bed of fresh spinach leaves!  AND if that were not enough, it comes with a delicious poppy-seed dressing!

The reason I'm so happy about this addition to their menu is that it is the perfect size!   I love Cafe Rio salads but never can finish them!!  JUST TOO DARN BIG!

So thanks Stacey for introducing my palate to this yummy work of art!   ~~  ** they only make a certain amount each day, so get there early!!

A Special Day - July 9th, 2011

Tomorrow my mom is being sealed to her parents: 

A Special Day~

To mom and dad are joined today…

A brown-eyed daughter finds her way.

Their Barbara Jean will kneel and bow,

With sealing power to show her how.

Her daughter takes a grandma’s place-

Her grandson, Grandpa’s spot will face.

There will be there the unseen guests,

To bring to all their joy and rest.

Uniting family far and wide-

Eternal shores, Eternal tide.

Lucille and Clyde our love comes through

The Gospel Light shines bright and true.

Love for our Liberties

Watched Katelyn "fiddle" to open an early morning patriotic program in Layton on Independence Day.  She was the cutest one with a violin up on stage, all decked out in red, white and blue.  The speaker was short but powerful.  I pray for our Republic............this the greatest nation on the face of the earth, but taken for granted more often than not. 

From there, we went to Kaysville to watch the parade which Katelyn also was in ( her dance group ).....it was wonderful to see how Korean War and Vietnam vets were honored and applauded for as they went by.  The weather was made to order for me...............overcast, cool breeze, absolutely perfect to watch a parade in!!!

I love to watch little grandchildren instinctively put their hand over their heart as the pledge of allegiance is said and our Nation's Flag goes by.   Happy Birthday USA - May God Bless This Nation and help us remember what is offered to us as citizens of the United States of America.
