Back in business

I am so very happy to report that my camera is back in my possession. I am tickled pink! I am able to take lovely macro photos again. I am a happy camper.

I also have a metric ton of tomatoes. Or so it seems at times. Whenever I am out in the garden I bring in at least a few pounds of tomatoes off the vines...and those are just the Early Girls! My Mortgage Lifter tomatoes are just coming in and the Sweet Pea and mystery tomato from my mom is blooming now. I should have even more tomatoes soon. I am off from work and clinic on Friday, so I will find a way to use that plethora you see above and post it here.

In the mean time, salad has been a big part of meals this week, tonight I bumped them up a bit and made a Cobb Salad.

I kept things simple, using iceberg and green leaf lettuce and topping it off with a few tomatoes from the garden, some hard boiled eggs, avocado, bacon, green onion and chicken. Keeping things even easier, we dressed it off with a yummy bleu cheese dressing.

Wrapping up the fabulous-ness of it was the dry rub I used on the chicken prior to grilling it. I just mixed equal amounts of salt and garlic powder and added in a few shakes of poultry seasoning. Grilled and sliced on the salad it was awesome with the dressing. The salad was also perfect for the heat we've had this week, filling and so yummy.

So my cooking has been minimal over the last couple of weeks. Hopefully, having my camera back will encourage me to cook, otherwise, I have nothing to post here!


  1. I have never made a cob salad before but your picture looked so great I had to give it a shot. And I must say... WOW! Great flavors. The egg balanced out the bacon and the avocado made everything work together.

    Thanks for the inpiration!

  2. Thanks OlyPappa, glad I could be an inspiration and that you liked the salad!
