Now to my topics... Let's start with the Broccoli and grapes! I used them to make a GREAT SALAD! I recently went to a women's event in a church and they had a delicious salad and it included broccoli and grapes! I started looking for recipes that looked "similar" and I found this delicious recipe in Allrecipes.com... I made some slight modifications... so I want to share with you my version of Broccoli Salad Supreme!
What you need: (this is a very big salad... you can make half and it would be more than enough for 4 people)
- 10 cups broccoli florets
- 6 cups seedless red grapes (I used these for my salad too and even I loved it I think I would like it better with less grapes... So I guess 5 cups would be fine!)
- 1 cup sliced celery
- 1 chopped red onion
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 1 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled (I just sprinkled some of the bacon flavored soy stuff they sell for salads, it was good but I am sure it would've been better with the real stuff)
- 1 1/3 cups walnuts
Here are some pictures:
I also made brownies last night.... They were ok... Hubby loves brownies.... so we had that with a cup of coffee... which takes me to my next topic.... HUBBY IS SUCH A SWEETHEART! Lately when we go to a coffee shop I've been using "Sugar in the Raw" for my coffee... I just love it! As I've mentioned before, he is "in charge" of coffee here at home.... and he surprised me yesterday when he went to the store and got my "sugar in the Raw" ...
I mean... you might thing it's nothing "huge" but for me it is... I just love how much he pays attention to everything I like or the things I say... He does this all the time! and it's those "little things" that make me love him even more!
Thanks for reading my dear friends! I hope you had a great Monday! Do not forget Friday is almost here and it's all about you and your coffee... so send the pictures! And thanks to Marty for already sending his picture! I loved it! (To know more about Coffee Fridays click here )
