Oh, Yeah!! This is my new best friend. I love to get salad in a restaurant, on a salad bar, but never at home. Never could understand why. Then Daughter Kristin suggested that I try a salad spinner. And I'm eating salad again at home. It's absolutely amazing. The dry lettuce and other salad makings hold the dressings better, and they keep for days in a plastic container in the fridge. Daughter Pam loves the salad spinner - I think my salad ingredients are most definitely dizzy when Pam's cooking. She loves to pull that string. I told her that she needs to alternate arms so that her upper arms remain the same equal size. Kristin believes that if you pull the string in a certain way, you can work upper arms and your abs. But seriously, it does make a big difference. Last night all the kids came for dinner. And Mary made steak salads. In case you don't know, here in the Pittsburgh area, steak salad is a big thing. All your favorite veggies are in there, hard boiled egg, cheese, many times ham, your steak, and especially French fries. I like to add dried fruit, sunflower seeds, and bacon bits. Add your favorite dressing, and you have a meal in a bowl. And mmmm it's so good.
On Monday, Jake decided to gnaw on Grammy's finger, and lo and behold, there was a tooth on the bottom. And Monday was his 4 month birthday. Then last night, he bit my finger again, and there's a little tooth coming through on the top. Kristin said that "the book" said he shouldn't cut teeth until 6 or 7 months. But I guess Jake hasn't read the book. Off to the sewing room. Toodles!
