Shredded Kale Salad

Another day another ice storm and more school closings. This winter has been particularly unpleasant and I really cannot wait for spring. It was 39 degrees yesterday and I actually opened a few windows to get some fresh air in the house. Come on 40's!!! Hell, I will have short sleeves on by then. Haha

Our local Shop Rite has had very good prices on kale and fennel. I love the fennel because it is 2 for $5 so I buy the biggest ones they have. While both vegetables are good roasted or sauteed, I really like to make a kale and fennel salad, but last night we tried a different salad recipe from Oh She Glows and man was it really, really good. With it we had the basic best salmon loaf, I used the fronds from the fennel in place of the dill, and I highly recommend the combo.

I used just one large head of kale and added four cloves of garlic instead of two for the dressing. I will say if you are using more kale, make extra dressing for the side. It is that tasty.
She does have a recipe for pecan Parmesan, for all the vegans out there, but when I tried making it last night, it came out more like a pecan butter, This was alright by us because it was very good on our toast this morning. :) We used straight up vegetarian parmesan in its place with the cranberries and we threw some almonds in as well. I cannot say enough about how good this salad is so give it a go if you can.

The Best Shredded Kale Salad

If you are getting battered by today's ice and snow, stay safe and warm!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

I AM ON A MISSION

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe


I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

Bad Writing Abounds In Twilight Novels

I have never had the desire to read the "Twilight" series. What I knew about them sounded like a bad young adult novel and I could not be bothered. Besides, I read Anne Rice's Vampire Series years ago, which I thoroughly enjoyed, but that was enough vampire lore for me.I have a very good friend that loves "Twilight". One day I saw her book on the table, picked it up, read one page, threw the book down and said to my husband, "This is written like absolute crap!" And yet the books are best selling series and the author makes millions. Bless her heart. I hate dumbed down books and I really hate books written as if the author never took an English class. Oddly enough, Ms. Meyer was an English major, go figure. From what I have read in regards to the Twilight books and heard during conversations about the beloved series, I know that I do not like her main characters. They sound like people that would fall under Too Stupid Too Live for me. A vapid, needs to …
