April 20th

Yesterday and today we did a salad lab for home ec. The kiddos weren’t to excited about salad, but I didn’t really care! smile.gif

They had to get out all the ingredients…

The boy did all the chopping…~~please note that he is using HIS knife~~

The daughter mixed up all the other things….

And I……….well, I got to taste it all.

Clockwise from the top right.  Aunt Cindy’s potato salad, Macaroni and Cheese Pasta salad, and Waldorf salad.  It was all good, but the Waldorf has always been a favorite of mine.  Please note that there is no green in the Waldorf…….that is because I abhor celery….blech…patooie….cough….grossedout.gif

Do you have a favorite salad?

  1. I love just about any fruit salad and the Waldorf is very good – I prefer it w/out the celery as well though I love celery.

    I would most likely eat the macaroni salad if it was served to me but I don’t eat potato salad at all. 😛

  2. I guess now I would have to say tuna salad with carrots and onions, hold the mayo and everything else that makes it really yummy.

    The macaroni salad looks really good.

    My absolute favorite cold salad is a chicken salad with grapes, cashews, celery, cheese, and a sweet dressing on a bed of lettus or a croissant.

  3. Aww, how can you not like celery? It is so benign; all crunch, little taste.

    I love made at home Taco Salad, frozen fruit salad, and just regular ole salad salad.

    Now bagged salad is a different beast and I think it is disgusting.

  4. I like 5 bean salad. Of course I end up with all kinds of other stuff in it. Tonight for dinner i am making Shrimp Scampi with chinese noodles(no gluten)and I am fixing a salad with chinese cabbage and bok choy. This will be a first for my fellas,but they say they will try it.

  5. I like pasta salad, fruit salad, taco salad, BLT salad, and I love a regular lettuce salad with black and green olives, pepperoni, deli ham or turkey or both, fresh mushrooms, fetta or cheddar or mozzarella or Monterayjack or a combination of these, tomatoes, oh yea…lettuce and fresh spinach leaves…Yum! 😀

    I have never had a Waldorf salad. I too don’t like celery…and I don’t like onions. :b

  6. I don’t really like Waldorf salad at all. There is just something so unsalady about it. I just like a plain tossed salad with veggies.

  7. I can imagine your kiddos not being thrilled about a salad lab! Blech!

    My salads consist of whatever veggies look good at the store. I do not put any dressing on them; I like my veggies unadorned. 🙂

  8. Hey, Chocolatechic…like your blog, and love all the pics! I like tuna salad with onion, celery, relish, yummy! How long have you hs’d your dk’s?

  9. I have home schooled for 10 years, and I have loved every minute of it.

    There was one year that I didn’t think I could go on. I had no support, and I was having serious problems with my marriage……I had no one but God. He got me through.
