    Jdouglas- pears and gorgonzola sound delicious! That's pretty much all my DH likes on his mixed greens (dried cranberries, steak and the sunflower seeds). And I always add some clover sprouts and red cabbage for nutrition and fiber!

    Faye- I think you'd like the dried cranberries! One of our favorite holiday salads uses dried cranberries, green peas, and ranch dressing (the buttermilk recipe one)... sounds really odd, but it's oh so good!

    Tonight is the leftover roast chicken. I made gravy, so heating it up will be easy if we decide we want to. Reading RFB's salad has me thinking of going that direction though. I love dried cranberries in salad, especially combined with some sliced oranges or pears and some gorgonzola.

    RFB, what else is going into your salad tonight?

    Raesmom, your crockpot might be one of the easiest things to cook with while you're living out of boxes. One pot, and done.

    RFB - interesting salad toppings! I love sunflower seeds on salads. Will have to try dried cranberry as well.

    Raesmom - hope you are feeling better today!

    Faye- we're doing a sirloin steak tonight, too! But, my DH has requested it in a salad with his "nibbly bits"- dried cranberries and sunflower seeds :-)

    Tonight we are having sirloin steaks that I picked up yesterday. They were marked down but look very good. Serving them with sauteed mushrooms, zucchini and onions. Also having corn on the cob and rolls.
