In trying to make healthier food choices  suppers this week have looked like this:

I dont really use 'recipes' for salads...I just add whatever is available. This one had regular iceberg lettuce, raddicio, red leaf lettuce, kale, red peppers, carrots, onion, and a few black olives and tomatoes. 

once mixed it looks more like this:

Topped with some shredded cheese for protein and chopped walnuts for crunch.

I got the cute sturdy colorful plastic salad bowls at Publix. Love them.
I am also giving the green tea a try. So far I dont much care for it, but I have read it is so good for us.

I know that one small square of the good dark chocolate (70% or higher of the cocoa) per day is good for our hearts, so I have mine with a few walnuts which gives me good omega 3s and makes it taste like a really decadent candy bar! I like mine in the afternoon!

Wrapping up some DIYprojects this weekend including this lamp which turned out just like I wanted!



I just love this shade of emerald green!

The fun orange and white lamp shade is from the Dollar Store and was only $5.00. So if you have a drab or boring room an EMERALD GREEN LAMP AND AN ORANGE ZIG ZAG lamp shade will probably liven it right up! 

This week's reading:
This book was so good. It was about a military family and spanned a few eras and three wars. If focuses mainly on two sisters and begins in the 1930s and goes up to the early 80s.


  1. Debbie,
    Thank you so much for visiting. As you noticed I have been MIA for a while. Health issues and a pacer replacement has slowed me down significantly. Enough whining.
    Thank you for following me and I promise I will get busy soon. I I look forward to seeing what is going on in the Sister City. I love Charleston but have not been up in several years.
    My, that salad looks good. I agree most salads around here consist of what's on hand but you had a lot of good things on hand. I love chocolate but don't keep a lot around because I can't discipline myself around chocolate. I do keep a two pound bag a walnuts around that I can't seem to leave alone.
    I will do a little touring around you blog and I invite you to do the same.
    Blessings, Ginger

  2. Oh your salad looks delish! I made a salad yesterday for the first time in weeks. Thinking I'll have another one today!
    I love your "new" lamp! I love the chevron patterns that are so popular right now.
    Thank you for your visits and have a good week!

  3. I put the book on my reading list! I know I would like it! I love your yummy salads and try to make 'desserts' like that, too. I put a tablespoon of peanut butter with some chocolate sometimes...oh my! Love that bright green, too! It doesn't look like the same lamp. Great job!

  4. Thanks for the book review. I adore what you did with the lamp. We are trying to eat salads often, too. My husband loves olives. I know the green tea has many benefits; I don't care for it but drink it anyway! Hope you enjoy the rest of the week.
