why i am not a food blogger

i looove to cook, i love to experiment, i love to browse food blogs with photos and descriptions and recipes that make my mouth water... even with that limited space, i love spending time in the kitchen and trying out something new, or making an old family favourite over and over again.

so, why am i not a food blogger? well, because i simply forget to take a photo of our food almost every single time. it just never occurs to me (or too late) to grab my camera and make a fancy stylish photo of what i made / i am making. same with the above salad. i ate half of the plate before i remembered that i might make a little food blog post about it.

quick and easy: my favourite winter salad lunch:
  • leafy greens (i prefer lamb's lettuce, also known as mache or corn salad, see above. spinach is a great alternative)
  • some fruit (i used grapes above but chopped up apples are even better)
  • seeds as topping (sunflower seeds, pine seeds, pumpkin seeds)
  • a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, olive oil and maple syrup - yum!
  • oh yes, and i add goat cheese or feta at times as well!
we usually don't have that much salad in winter, so this is a welcome alternation on the typical soup and cooked vegetable menue!

Guten Appetit!

I have have been adding craisins and blue cheese to my salad's lately, very tasty. I also like sliced pears with blue cheese and walnuts.
Your salad looks wonderful.

The salad looks lovely! I never remember to take pics of recipes I make, cookies I bake, etc either. I am always too busy enjoying the fruits of my labors!

Now this looks like a delicious salad, like at some fancy restaurant! We sometimes add toasted almonds as topping. I didn't find any salad like yours in our area yet. Maybe I have to check out the farmers' market.

yummy:)))) I always wonder that about the kids schooling...it's a HUGE part of our day and yet I never blog about it..hmmmm...Not sure why. Maybe for the same reason, I just never think to grab my camera:) Hope you're having a great week!
