These are our salad days.

One of the best things about our trip to North Carolina was that it gave us a chance to spend time with old friends we haven’t seen in a long time. I spent a good bit of our first wedding party talking to my friend Karin about all things food. I told her about this blog and she diligently read it. Clearly, she got a good sense of what I like, because she sent me a link to this recipe.

I think we all know that I love a main dish salad, especially in the summer. Tonight’s attempt did not disappoint.

Really, how can you go wrong with a bunch of grains and some tasty protein? And then, of course, there’s the feta.

I’m having a bad day. I started the ball rolling with the name change process recently, and I complicated things for myself by keeping my middle name and adding my original last name as a second middle name. Now I’m plagued by self-doubt (What middle initial do I use on my taxes? How will I sign? What if the Middle name box on a form is too small?) and have worked myself into a frenzy that has literally lasted for three days. If you read this and have two middle names, now would be a great time to tell me how much you love it.

Anyway, at least the food was good.

    Worked out well for me. Just be careful what you name your kids. Little separation there never hurt anyone if you know what I mean.

    I’d say the 2nd middle name was far from my biggest challenge in life.

    Don’t worry about the middle name thing, I have two middle names and the IRS never gets EITHER of them right but I still get my refund. If I ever get married, which I doubt will ever happen, whoa! I could end up with 3 middle names, that would surely be a catastrophe!

    Thanks for the insight.


    I agree!


    I had no idea that you had two middle names. I am totally going to talk to you about it at work tomorrow.
