May is Salad Month!

Well I'm starting a little late this month. Let me explain why. Trevor got a job! After being laid off for four months, this is very good news indeed. A huge shout out to my wonderful boyfriend and the career journey he is embarking on!

In the span of about six weeks, the two of us will be in places such as Texas (both Austin and Dallas), Kansas City, Bend, Seattle, Lincoln City, Florida and possibly San Diego. We're about in the middle of this hectic time so the blog has been put on the back burner unfortunately. I had mixed emotions about my dedication to the blog, but sometimes you have to forgive certain things in your life. After all, a blog is not mandatory and not something that should create stress.

With that in mind, I've decided to do a leafy green month. So far the blog has been very successful at stretching my boundaries in the vegetable world and we are frequently incorporating vegetables in to our meals. I don't shy away from restaurant menus that have too many vegetables on them. However the one thing I'm still really iffy on is salad. So far no matter how much fat you put on it, it's still like eating grass. So this month my goal is to learn to love salads! 

While we have a hectic rest of the month, I will try and make at least a few salads by May 31st. However, I'm also going to be actively ordering salads at restaurants as well. Wish me luck!

A preview of months to come: Cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts, Squash, Peas, Herbs and probably a "remix" month in which I try recipes I didn't get to in other months. If anyone has suggestions, just let me know!
