100 blog posts!

We have finally started getting some beautiful weather. We had a lazy day today, just hanging around outside in the sun. On beautiful days like this I always like to eat something cool...something like a salad! As the kids continued to play outside I put together this simple but tasty dinner. The kids wanted more bread sticks right away but had to finish their salads first...which they did. The boy ate his dinner in about ten seconds flat.  I originally got this salad recipe from my good friend Amanda, she brought it over for a potluck many years ago and it has been popular here ever since!  Here is my 3 year old daughter's plate, she thought it should be her turn :)

Spinach Salad

4-5 cups baby spinach
1/2 cup sliced dried apricots
1/2 cup craisins
1/3-1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2-3/4 cup feta
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1-2 tbsp poppy seeds
salt and pepper

*Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl
*In a food processor, pulse together all dressing ingredients
tada (easiest meal ever)


  1. Congrats on #100!!! Many, many more to follow. I shall toast you with a glass of fresh almond milk when I arrive home tonight. :)

  2. That salad looks delicious. I will definitely be trying that one!
