5.24.06 Midweek Munchies and Taco Party

Want to know more about , check out Harmonia's Hut.

The yellow translucent tupperware bowl does not give this pretty salad the justice I feel it deserves. This is one of my favorite spring salads using fresh broccoli. I like to cut my veggies and fruits in to small peices (a little less than 1/2"), however this picture makes it look like they might be smaller than that. This salad has broccoli, red apple chopped, a little bit if thinly sliced purple onion, currants and sunflower seeds. The dressing is my sweet mayo dressing (scroll down until you see this recipe).

SHOPPING: This Friday I will be hosting a Taco Buffet party on my DH's side and then once again on Sunday for my side of the family. The party is to honor my son who was accepted to a computor networking and technology program. He is now at the end of his homeschooled years and will be semi-independant, staying with his grandparents Monday night through Thursday night and coming home on weekends and days there is no school. This picture is the one we used on his party announcement exclaming, WOW I got accepted!

I will be shopping tommorrow evening on my way home to pick up the goods for both parties. One thing that I think might be shareworthy is my TACO LENTILS recipe. It originally came from a Light and Tastey Magazine several years ago. I tried it and the family really enjoys this. I have made soy taco meet before with TVP, but the family prefers the lentils better.

That salad looks great - I'll have to try it and post about it.

Congrats to your son! I'd encourage him to stay focused, yet pick up new technologies as they come around. IT is going to be an interesting industry over the next few years. It will be neat to see how a lot of the outsourcing plays out and the opportunities that will arise as the baby boomer population retires. Good for him!!!
