salad for dinner.

last night randy and i attempted to eat a big, tasty salad for dinner. and we did. and it was indeed tasty: venison steak, red pepper, leek, purple onion, broccoli and mushrooms atop a bed of spinach and romaine lettuce.

i have been craving all things green! been eating a lot of carbs lately which doesn't have to be awful if it's good carbs, but i've needed more veggies this week.

after we each finished our salads, we looked up at each other, with a smirk. “i’m still hungry,” i said. “me too,” said randy. we laughed. then we put fallon on a leash and took a walk to the local ice-cream place. i guess we’ll have to make bigger salads or more food next time we do salad for dinner.

in other news, our church small group meets on thursday evenings and there is a food theme each week. this week’s theme is bacon (technically it’s bacon and beer – these people enjoy quality beer. it truly is about quality not quantity in this situation). randy immediately offered to make “cheesy bacon bombs.” i’ve never heard of them but he saw a picture online and wanted to try them:

cheesy bacon bomb = a hunk of mozzarella cheese wrapped in biscuit dough, then wrapped in bacon. then friend in oil. holy cholesterol.

randy tried a few out last night. he even put jalapenos in some. he then said, “these are great. i’ve got to make them once a year. no, once a month.” maybe he should have his cholesterol checked, too 🙂
