My body is saying “thank you” a million times over tonight.  It’s finally salad weather.

I know and understand that in today’s world of produce being grown and flown in from all over the planet, I can have a salad any time I want.  Problem is, when it’s cold outside, I don’t want to eat a salad.  I want soups and stews and homemade bread and casseroles and good things like that.  But as the temperature rises the thought of soup gives way to leafy greens and anything else I can think of to top them.

Tonight it was a grilled pork tenderloin.

I marinated the tenderloin in the Honey Clementine BBQ Sauce I made earlier, and grilled it from the top rack of the grill.  Came out great.

The Honey Clementine Salad Dressing worked perfectly.

So… off-topic a bit…  When did “wax beans” start getting called “Yellow Beans?”   I was surprised to see them labeled that way at the produce store, today.  And when did “string beans” lose their string?!?  I haven’t been paying attention!

I blanced the two types of beans and a bit of broccoli, boiled a couple of eggs, sliced a tomato and chopped a green onion.  All on a bed of mixed greens.

We’re going to be seeing more and more of these as the months progress…

Who knows…  maybe I’ll even drop a pound or two.

It could happen.
