• Personally speaking….

    Finals are done. School is done. Blogs are getting dusted off. I hope to post at least once a week about some of the things that matter to me -- a young vegetarian woman in Virginia.

Kitchen Sink Salad

Organic Produce I stopped off at Walgreens and Food Lion on the way home. Walgreens to buy the non-food items to see if I really do save. That and they have the eye drops I need for my Lasik healing. I then went to Food Lion to wander the aisles a little but mainly went to pick up mushrooms and bacon for a recipe I saw.

I looked in the organic section to see what was available and how much it’d kill my budget. The local farmers markets aren’t open all the time yet nor are they stocked with all I need, of course. Boy were those prices high! But, I focused on the “dirty dozen” to get the most green benefit from my green. I picked up a few organic apples.

While there, I stopped off to look at one of my latest addictions: strawberries. They were cleaned out. Seems they’re having an unadvertised special on strawberries for 1.33 a pound. Yep. That’s dirt cheap. But then again, strawberries are one of the “dirty dozen” so I hesitate to buy too many “dirt cheap” strawberries. I, at least, try to buy ones grown and processed in U.S.A. Since they were out and I already had a little tub in the fridge, I didn’t pick any up. I wanted to use up the strawberries I do have so that I can buy more (and maybe check out one of those you-pick farms). I don’t have much time before I leave for Orlando for a week so want to clean up all the produce in the fridge.

Kitchen Sink Salad

That’s really all I can figure to call it. I had some produce in the fridge that I needed to either eat or throw away and I hate to throw stuff away. I sliced up a golden delicious apple, a hot house seedless cucumber (I love those cause I don’t have to peel them), romaine, spinach, boiled egg (only the white part), strawberries, and bacon (center cut). I drizzled it with about 3 tablespoons (I measured to see how much dressing I use to count points) of Newman’s Own Light Balsamic Dressing. Thoughts: Well, while I knew apple, spinach and strawberries would do well with balsamic, I didn’t like when I’d get a combination bite of strawberry and egg. So, I basically had two salads. I thought the egg, spinach, romaine, bacon combination was fantastic as seen in that recipe. I also liked the combination of strawberry, apple, spinach, romaine, and balsamic. The cucumber didn’t do much except blend into the spinach.

Update: I broke down and walked to Food Lion today to get some strawberries. They are from U.S.A. but not many left for $1.33.
