My latest addiction....

So, this salad is my latest addiction. I can't get enough of it. It's a simple salad, but the dressing is to die for!

It's called Blueberry Salad, but I used strawberries instead since they are in season!

Blueberry Salad
(from our church cookbook, DeAnn Winter)

Lettuce ( I used spinach)
Monterey Jack cheese, cubed
1/4 cup pecans, toasted
1 cup blueberries (or strawberries)
red onion, diced to taste
red pepper, diced to taste ( I left this out)

1 small onion, minced (can use dried onion)
1 1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tsp. dry mustard
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups oil
2-3 TBSP poppy seeds

Wash and drain lettuce. Place in a large salad bowl. In a blender, puree dressing ingredients. This will make a LARGE amount. Sprinkle cheese, pecans, berries and red onion and pepper over lettuce. Drizzle with dressing, toss and serve!

It makes a serious amount of dressing, so just know that :)
But it's soooo good. YUM!!


  1. YUM!!! I have a salad that is very similar that's a favorite of mine except mine has mozzarella cheese and sugar coated almonds.

  2. I really hope that I rediscover my love for salads after the girls come...the smell of lettuce has just been revolting! So weird! But this sounds really good.

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

Excited about Chemo, Preaching and Pumpkins.

As the days draw closer to my next round I find myself almost excited?!?!  Is that just the weirdest thing? I know what to expect now when I go, I have the BEST support system and I know it means one more round down and one more day closer to being done with all of this. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my week break in between, but I don’t feel anxious going in. I feel hope. Something I thought was going to be allusive this entire process.  ( PS: I reserve the right to change my mind about this at any point along the way!!) Tomorrow brings a blood draw, appointment with my oncologist (okay that always makes me nervous- I like the PA better) and then another Pre-Chemo Movie Night with friends and family. If Cinemark stops this before I’m done with chemo I’m going to have an issue!!! Oh and I get my hair cut!! You know, even if I mostly only go to doctors appointments you gotta keep the hairs lookin good. Tonight I got to teach/preach for the first time since March. I had a lot of anxiety go
