Sometimes you need fast food. Not that salty processed junk, but food. Good food. Fast. This tomato garlic salad comes together in no time, there is even minimal chopping! I like to have it with eggs in the morning, or add some chicken at lunch. It also pulls off a spot on a dinner plate as well. It’s like the “little black dress” of salads: Good any time!
I am away from home again, house/cat sitting. I like it. I get to use different appliances, plates and light sources. It’s like an adventure. I even like living out of a suitcase, or in my case, laundry basket. That’s right, I am a classy packer: throw a bunch of stuff in a laundry basket, some paleo baking essentials, and I am ready to go! There is a convection oven here and I am excited to do some baking.
There are a couple of character kitties here. One cat who I have to sneak up on to pet. I was told she would warm up to me but I don’t know how fast that will happen with me constantly hunting for her to love. The other cat, has a lion’s hair cut, and is quite chatty. We spent most of today wandering around the house meowing at each other. We bonded. That happen when you spend an entire day chatting with a new friend, even if it is a cat friend.
