I’m a big fan of a big salad. I just can’t think of anything better than the combination of cool, crunchy raw vegetables and something warm like a bean burger. It’s the best.
Throw in some dark red kidney beans (be still, my heart), mountains of shredded carrots and homemade honey mustard, and you’ve got yourself a damn meal.
Today’s salad was unexpectedly enjoyed in the comfort of my own home. I trotted off to school this morning ready for a class, a test, a 1/2 day of work and another class, but my boss instructed me to use my afternoon to study for tomorrow’s test (it never ends). Happy day! [In my defense, I'm not skirting work. I had gone in to work extra to gear up for an event we have in two weeks. He shooed me away.]
So the afternoon has taken a delightful turn for the awesome, and I’m about to hunker down and study clinical nutrition before breaking for a class field trip to the Catwaba Indian Reservation. My community nutrition professor is the reservation’s full-time RD during the day so she’s taking us out to see what she does. I love field trips…
And she said we’ll get to eat traditional food–three sisters stew and cornbread. She had me at cornbread. And stew.
