I hope everyone had a terrific and tasty Father's Day. I gifted the Quiet Man a red wheelbarrow, and of course that made me think of the William Carlos William poem, "So much depends upon a red wheel barrow..." I know how you feel, red wheelbarrow. So much depends on the person who makes food around the house, too.
So, here's a copy-cat quickie for you on a busy Monday. Paradise Bakeries are springing up around the country, offering yummy but pricey fare such as sandwiches, freshly baked bread, cookies, and salads. From the menu, this delicious baby green salad with cranberries, sunflower seeds and blue cheese caught my eye. I paid my fistful of greens, tried it, loved it, came home and copied it. It's relatively inexpensive to make at home and possibly even more delicious. You could serve it as a side salad for four, but frankly, you might happily eat the whole bowl yourself. Next time I will.Baby Greens with Cranberries, Sunflower Seeds, and Blue Cheese
