Um, is it illegal to take pictures of magazines and post them on a blog? At least I will cite the pictures and tell you they are directly from the September issue of Food Network.
Anyways another thing I love about going to my parents house is reading the latest issue of Food Network.
What did I learn yesterday while reading?
How to maximize my salad bar creations to get the best bang for my buck. I think I need to write an article for their next issue on how to create a salad mountain so tall that the table next to you asks how in the world one person can eat that many servings of vegetables at one time…….pure talent.
For salad bars that charge by the lb, the toppings that are the best deal for you to throw on are: Bleu cheese, bacon, cheddar cheese, peas, walnuts, chicken and cranberries.
The foods that are still a good deal but not as good as the ones above are broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, chow mein noodles, avocado, croutons, olives and pepperoncini.
And the toppings that you should just go to the store, buy and store in your purse to throw on your salad because they are way more expensive by weight are radishes, beets, chickpeas, celery, eggs, mandarin oranges, green beans and cucumbers.
Sorry if I bored the junk out of you with that but I spend my free time figuring out how I can make Billy proud with a $7 salad charge on my credit card statement rather than the normal $13 charge.
In other news I stopped counting how many peaches I ate today after the third one.
Where is your favorite salad bar?
What is your ALL time favorite salad topping?
What is the most random thing in your purse/bag/backpack right now?
-Golf balls to roll out my feet on but I think I might have to stock up on the chickpeas, oranges and celery in my purse for my next trip to the salad bar.
