I'm stunned that November has arrived, this year just seemed to fly by. Except for the time I was at work. But that's everyone's experience, right?
We had a great vacation in October and 10 glorious days away from work. As I'd mentioned in previous posts we were meant to have a few days away in Cedar Key but were canceled due to storm damage.
We had fun anyway doing short outings, riding, eating, imbibing and things we both enjoy. I read quite a bit too. Then I slid into a rut about getting on the computer and haven't posted since October 22nd. Dunno what happened but I still visited some blogs, read the news (Meh), played Wordfeud on my phone (It's like scrabble) and that's about it. I had zero motivation to post even though we have had some great meals and I have read a few books to chat about.
Anyway, I wanted to share this stunningly gorgeous salad from Northside Pies in Tallahassee as well as hook up with Deb's Souper Sunday series. It's been a while for me.
On one of our vacation days we stopped at a locally owned pizza place. We like to support local businesses and frankly, they are usually way better than a chain. Northside Pies has a lunch special where you may choose two slices or one slice and a salad.
It's great getting salads when we dine out because I try and examine the ingredients and ballpark the measurements if I want to recreate a recipe. They use the freshest ingredients and load it up.
Don;t you hate it when you get a side salad and the tomatoes are bland and tasteless, the lettuce wilted and the other ingredients are limited? Makes you sorry you ordered it but I can tell you, this place makes it fresh and they don't skimp on the ingredients. You get quality and quantity.
So, here is my offering for my first post in November.
I will be joining Deb at Kahakai Kitchen for her Souper Sunday series. The linkup for this week may be found HERE. Please join in!
