We try to eat a salad with every meal. It helps fill up and it gets some greens in us. 

Side Salad =  leafy green salad either a spring mix or just baby spinach with assorted topping I have available: tomatoes, mushrooms, green onion, red or yellow bell pepper, croutons, cheese, sometimes some chopped hard boiled egg


  1. That is a very nice painting you have at the top right of your blog, have you any idea of its provenance? I imagine it's a detail from a larger picture.

    1. It is by Dutch painter Vilhelm Hammershøi. The painting is "Interior with young woman from behind" and was painted in 1903.
