Butter is super healthy.

Not if one has heart disease.

Moving on now.....
Tonight:
I've asked Costco for help. They're my new Betty Crocker. ;)

We are having a rotisserie chicken.
I took some sour dough dressing I made awhile back and adding it as a side.

I get to use my new salad spinner. I am big on buying fresh lettuce, and other assorted greens. Cant stand the bagged lettuce but I understand why those who are fixed for time love the convenience.

We're having a Greek salad tonight with grape tomatoes, cucumber, feta, and some of my olives I put up last summer with a lovely organic Greek olive oil and red wine vinaigrette.

a spinner is especially useful with dirty greens such as collards
no amount of hand washing will cleanse all of the dirt residue
but a spinner makes short work of it

It was hot here today too and we have air conditioning. It is really humid and makes it worse. Hubby saw your picture and said it looked really good.

Thank you. I will tell you it was easy to use and did the job.
Again, I bought it at Costco for about twenty dollars.

Today was kind of busy so we got a pizza at a local joint we have loved for years. They have won all kinds of awards but the last two pies we have had were not good. So it is time to find another pizza joint.

We had tomato and cheese sammiches, cucumber salad on the side.
My cucumber salad usually has cucumbers, onions, and sometimes bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and olives in an olive oil vinaigrette.. A salad with no lettuce. The leftovers I use the next day on a toasted sesame seed bagel and a shhhhhmear of cream cheese. Smacking lips after every bite follows.

Beef and cheddar
A small serving of fries.

Curly fries are ok occasionally, but they aren't really my favorite. Kiddo likes them, though.

Have never had collards, but the spinner is essential for spinach

What fruits and veggies does your little buddy like? When they were babies feeding them baby food starting with fruits then yellow veggies for me it wasn't a problem but when I was to introduce green veggies they would spit them out. I had to hide them in apple sauce and other fruits to get them to eat them That continued for year. I found myself pureeing veggies to add to meatloaf, and other dishes to get them to eat them.

We give him organic fruit pouches, apple sauce, apples, and oranges. He'll occasionally eat other veggies and fruit when we're eating them. He is mostly interested in proteins, milk, and juice right now, though. Dude is super strong, knock on wood, so i hope that we're doing something right.

I wish I had those fruit pouches when my kids were that age. I had a real hard time with my kids getting them to eat green veggies. I do not know why. It was just the way it was. But today my youngest grandchildren love broccoli that they call little trees and other veggies that my kids would not eat. Not sure I did anything wrong but am happy they are eating those things.

Tuna salad sandwiches on poppy seed Kaiser rolls with Claussen dill spears on the side. Fresh blueberries for dessert.
