This Broccoli Salad Recipe is a slight twist on the classic adding sunflower seeds, extra bacon, and craisins.
It’s the longest we had ever been apart and I must say absence makes the heart grow fonder…at least for us.
We were texting and call each other like teenagers.
I took that week as an opportunity to get things done since sitting around missing him wasn’t accomplishing much.
It’s a nice pantry (though I’m not really into the sunflowers they have in there but whatever).
It was kind of a mess and I was surprised how much expired food was in there sadly even stuff that expired before we moved so I moved over expired food.
In doing so I had to drag everything out only to realize I have a baking chip problem. 🙂
17 bags of just chocolate chips is totally normal right?
I bought myself flowers because I had never seen coral colored peonies other than in a catalog before and well they are my favorite flower.
Was eating some granola and was reading the label….ummm?
Yeah, I know it says oats but when you first wake up and read that trust me you are thinking you just ate organic cats.
I tried the chocolate birthday Oreo last year and it was good but these are downright addicting as I think they taste far more like cake than the others.
Also people keep telling me that they make a Sherbert Flavor.
I can’t find it I’m so sad.
Peabody vs. the knife ended badly.
I sliced open the inside of my finger on Friday afternoon.
Luckily a small hole and they gave me the option of stitches or butterfly and I always go butterfly.
So glued back together again. 🙂
Graceful I am not.
The other thing I did while my fiance was gone was make a huge batch (double this recipe) of this Broccoli Salad Recipe (my favorite way to eat broccoli) and ate it the whole week he was gone.
I double the bacon that this recipe originally called for and add cranberries and sunflower seeds and nix the tomatoes.
You can play with it as well.
P.S. It’s a great day to buy my cookbook Holy Sweet!
