The Veggie Option: Superfood Salad

While visiting family recently in the U.K., I had the opportunity to try some of Marks & Spencer’s to-go salads and ready-meals, all of which were excellent. I was really taken with one in particular – the “superfood salad.” It was so tasty that I decided I would try to recreate it when I returned home.I should have written down the ingredient list, as by the time I got home I couldn’t remember exactly what all went into it. I decided to experiment a little and see what I could come up with on my own. So this isn’t an (Read more...)

The Veggie Option: Vegetarian Chili

I’m not sure why, but autumn always reminds me of R.E.M. I was saddened to hear that they split up this week after 31 years together. They were one of my college favorites and a staple at the radio station where I deejayed. I saw them at Wittenberg University on the Little America Tour (in support of Reckoning), at Vets Memorial on the Fables Tour, The Taft for Life’s Rich Pageant, and at Riverfront Coliseum on the Green Tour. After that I continued to buy their albums but stopped going to see them live because I missed the intimacy of (Read more...)
