Spinach & Blue Salad with Blueberry Vinaigrette

My Saturday morning routine consists of sleeping in (which usually means 7:00 am) and then hitting the farmer’s market by 9:00. My husband was out of town this past weekend, so some friends called me up to go to the market and then off to a neighboring town for an old-fashioned car show, where vintage cars and trucks lined the streets. Here are a few of my favorites:

This vintage car looks great in its coat of shiny purple with the white upholstery.

After we finished with the car show, we drove out to their home in the country where I helped put the horses in the pasture, took a few pictures of their chickens, and even came home with a couple dozen farm fresh eggs.

The different varieties of chickens produce green and brown eggs.

 

After I arrived home from a very fun-filled day, it was time to make something with the bag of fresh spinach I picked up at the market. I created what I call my “Spinach & Blue” salad. This salad is very quick to put together and makes a colorful display of nutritional yumminess!

 

 

Toasted Almonds

Gently toasted almonds add a nice crunch to the Spinach & Blue Salad.

 

Blueberry dressing

Blueberries, olive oil, honey, and apple cider vinegar makes for a tasty dressing.

Toasted almonds, blueberries, and crisp spinach are the start of the Spinach & Blue.

    Homemade vinaigrettes are the best – so much better than store bought! And this one looks great. Did you mash up the blueberries in your dressing? It doesn’t say so, but your end result looks like that was the case.

that way you actually get good guides In the 1930s, Elsa Schiaparelli with Madeleine Vionnet rose to prominence. Both were known for their innovative designs while not shattering the fundamentals of fashion. Schiaparelli became popular with her black knitted white bow. In addition to their well stocked inventory, you'll find dozens of dresses under "clearance sale" where you could pick up a designer beaded dress in the mid $100s. Choose from animal print, solids, paisley, sequined, chiffon and more for a custom look that's uniquely you. Featured designers include Betsy Johnson, Shelli Segal, Shoshanna, Tracey Reese, Nicole Miller, Anna Sui and Faviana. Joining me on the call is our Chairman and CEO, Mr. Qiming Xu. Please note that we will be making a number of forward looking statements today and all such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations and assumptions mentioned today, due to a variety of factors that affect the company, including risk specified in the most recently filed Form 20 F.. Of course the fun does not end when you turn off the computer. You can play the fashion games any time, and this is the area that adults especially truly enjoy. The adult can head to the department store and gather up any number of terrific outfits to try on. See if the stones are set by prongs. The prong placements also set Juliana apart, by giving it a claw like appearance, which is far from the traditional setting. Since Juliana jewelry was handmade or handset, you can expect that every piece is set by a prong. While mainstream men kept it close cropped with side parts and slicked back dos, many guys sported long hair in an effort to blur gender lines and shake traditional standards of masculinity. In the late 1960s, some African American men embraced the trend popularized by the civil rights based is beautiful movement, adopting natural hairstyles and a wardrobe influenced by an African aesthetic, including brimless kofia hats. Horn rimmed glasses, aviators and large frames made a bold mark on eyewear during this fashionable decade.. The first five episodes of Aquarian Age are interesting in how they play out. With a lot of series, be it short like this or a full season show, would do what these five episodes do in the space of one or two episodes normally. For a half season show to do the first five episodes like this is surprising but it seems to really work in its favor.youporn
