BLT Salad a la Everyday Foods. Today's "lunch", a relative term here, since it's almost 4:00 p.m. Let's see if we can avoid "complications" (read nausea) for Victor. Bacon = turkey. Another success! What better comfort food than croutons made from scratch...and homemade Ranch Dressing. It's just buttermilk, mayo, apple cider vinegar and chopped green onions. I added a bit of sour cream for thickness otherwise it can get watery.
I first found this recipe in Issue 19 of EF, Jan/Feb 2005, in their special light issue--New Year's Resolutions, you know, turn over a new leaf by quitting all the rich foods that you stuffed your face with between (if you're a mom) Halloween candy and Christmas cookies. It's by far my most worn issue, with about 10 of my favorite recipes. Turkey chili that uses cocoa powder and molasses--SO good. It's the Super Bowl issue too, so there are several meals for a crowd.
Now I just call up the recipe from my Zip List Recipe Box. http://www.ziplist.com/mylist My husband, Mr. Organized, knows that we save more money on buying groceries if we go with a list that was made with a menu in mind. I pick my recipes and it automatically adds the ingredients to a shopping list that I can print and take to the store with me. If I had a smart phone/iPad, which I don't, I could just look it up there. Oh wait, I do have an iPhone--but I promised I'd send it back! I will. I haven't even turned it on or anything! But it sure is tempting! :D
