Salad Crazy

Yesterday I had the day off, it was sort of nice since I know days off is going to be a rare thing starting soon. Anyway, I decided to make some salads for lunches.

I made a broccoli salad (which was my favourite), a pasta salad, and a double berry spinach salad. Mmmm. I also made some crabmeat dip, and steak sandwiches for supper. D was very happy with what I brought to him and couldn't finish everything so he packed some for lunch today. Leftovers are the best.

A friend who gave me some rhubarb about a month ago also popped in yesterday and I gave her one of the jams I made. I forget whether I did a posting on the jam I made or not, but I had some on bread this morning for breakfast and it's so good! I think I will attempt it again, or maybe some salsa!

I like to make things ahead of time for lunches for the upcoming week. Salads seem to be great because they are cool for summer. What are some other make ahead meals you enjoy?


  1. I love salad's in the summer but never seem to be unable to pack them for lunch.

  2. I love homemade jams, they're SO good! I like salads with leftover meat in them... Yum!

  3. If you eat spinach salad, remember to add fat to it so you can absorb the fat-soluble vitamins!
