So I'm a little slow this month. Sorry about that.
I have been so into salad the last couple of weeks. My husband and I have been making this salad that's pretty basic, but beats the heck out of eating just the lettuce that comes in the bag. We've been adding egg, cottage cheese, tomatoes, and cucumbers. And then I top it with one of my personal favorite dressings, Green Goddess.


Have you ever noticed how messy it can be to peel veggies, like cucumbers or potatoes? If you aim for the garbage can, you inevitably miss getting a few peels in. And I hate to just grind them in the garbage disposal because it can clog it (or so I've been told). So I have a very easy solution.

Put a piece of plastic wrap or a garbage bag on the counter and peel your veggies right over the top.
When you are done, you just wrap it up and toss it in the garbage. And ta da, no mess.! It can just be a grocery bag that you have hanging around anyway. I always have extras. I actually use those for dirty diapers too. It keeps the smellies out of my baby's room.
So the next time your working in the kitchen try peeling your veggies onto a bag or plastic wrap.
Now go get organized!

  1. Thanks to your suggestion I laid a tall kitchen garbage bag flat on the counter and pealed my potatos right over it. It worked like a charm. Thanks for the tip!
