  1. All look delightfully yummy, except that we’re more into the winter stews and soups time here.

  2. I’ve had all of these and they are all delicious. Ice cream is my favorite summer food but salads are great too.

  3. I wish to God I could eat these beautiful salads but I can’t even though my high Thyroid is responsible for my stomach issues I still cannot eat salad of greens or tomatoes or silk milk or soy bars or anything, it makes everything worse…anyhoo I.m working out a plan to reduce this high thyroid, and maybe then I can go back to eating these, and believe it or not I use to cook….sigh

  4. Hi LL, We’ve had a change in temps here too, in BC. It is more soup weather right now. Today I’m making a big pot of slow cooker spicy carrot soup and some cheese muffins. But I could eat salad any day!

    Hi Joe, I agree, love them all! 🙂

    Hi Lorraine, That’s quite unusual not being able to eat things like salads, considering they are usually easier ingredients to digest than some heavier dishes. I hope you work out your health issues, sounds complicated. 😦

    Happy Summer, it will be here soon, G 🙂

  5. Hey I’ve nominated you for the Liebster award for all your amazing blogging 🙂 To accept/the info is in my latest blog post (

  6. since I’ve started taking 1,000 Vitamine D3, my hot flashes have disappeared and I feel so much better…have you ever tried it, it’s wonderful, It’s actually my ex-husband that told me about it, it”s a power house…and congrats on your nomination, I can’t think of anyone who deserves it more….

  7. Reblogged this on VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS and commented:

    Salad time is definitely here again!
