Strawberry Avocado Salad

13 May

strawberry avacado salad

My friend Myra told me about this recipe so I started searching the web and found it at the http://www.allrecipes.com .

I have to admit I did change it up a little because I thought the dressing was too sweet.

2 tablespoons olive oil

4 teaspoons honey

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoons lemon juice

Mix all together and this is the honey vinaigrette dressing.

4 cups mixed greens including arugula and spinach.

One sliced avocado

8 to 10 sliced strawberries

1/2 cup pecans (optional)

two slices of chopped steak, feta cheese, goat cheese or chicken

Mix the greens, strawberries and avocado together

Drizzle with a couple tablespoons of dressing

Add whatever topping you like.

Do not over dress this salad.

The dressing is delicious but still sweet.

Thank you Myra and allrecipes.com.

Andy’s bacon omelette

25 Mar

Andy's omelette

I am so proud of my children because they all cook well.

They try everything and it usually comes out delicious.

I went to Trader Joe’s and found Sweet Sriracha Bacon Jerky.

uncured bacon jerky

This is on my no buy list because it is so good. I could eat the entire bag.

Andrew made an omelette with it.

Three eggs

Three slices of bacon

One whole green diced onion

Two teaspoons feta cheese

Three teaspoons  cheddar cheese

One teaspoon olive oil

Heat the oil in a non stick pan

Add the scallions and just soften them.

Beat the eggs and add to the scallions on a low flame.

Add the cheeses and three slices of bacon.

The bacon is already cooked so you don’t have to mess with another pan.

Flip the omelette in half and eat like you have never eaten an omelette before.

So good, spicy and definitely antacid worthy.
