Salad time

Good morning.
It was a sunny, cold day yesterday. High of 28.
After all my ambition on Monday, Tuesday wasn't the same.  :-)
I repacked the spinach I bought for this weeks salads. The spinach below was from what I bought last week.
As you can see, it still looks as good as when I bought it. The secret is in storage.
Remove the band around the bunch.
Do not wash until you use it. Place a paper towel in a plastic container, Loosely add the spinach, and seal with lid and put in fridge. It will keep for over a week.  :-)
Romaine will keep fine in a plastic bag for nearly 2 weeks.
And speaking of salads,here's what I got this week for them.....
And here we have romaine, spinach, english cucumber, carrots, eggs, tomato, fat free shredded cheese, and bacon bits.
I sliced up some romaine and spinach, then shaved a carrot.

I like the thinner pieces of carrot in salads.  :-)
The slice the cucumber. I like english cucumbers because the seeds are so small.
Slice the egg, and tomato, add a little shredded cheese for texture, and bacon bits for crunch and you have 3 nice salads.
I don't care for the tomato with the egg, so I'll have 2 different salads. Craig's is the third. He doesn't like bacon bits.  :-)
And I didn't get around to making the wings yet, maybe next week. probably just as well. I'd probably eat too many.   :-)
And now, time for another work week. This one is looking pretty busy.
