Eating with Our Eyes

After a 10 day period that included, in rapid-fire succession, aggressive work deadlines, malfunctioning major appliances, a seriously ill pet and a burglary, we’re just a little exhausted, but otherwise OK.  Except we tend to eat poorly in times of crisis, and leaned heavily on our favorite comfort/convenience foods.  You know the ones–mac and cheese, potatoes, take-out pizzas and sandwiches.  Then my mom sent me home with possibly the prettiest salad ever.  projects&promises|salad (2 of 3)

My mom’s a genius at food;  not just the preparation, but the presentation.  She could have been a food-stylist.  When we got this salad it felt like Christmas.  Actually, like the Christmases of “long ago” when appreciative children pulled jewel-like oranges from their stockings and were grateful for the sweetness and nourishment during the short, dark winter days.  Yay for salad, and moms!  projects&promises|salad (3 of 3)
