Simple Easy Meals; Nostalgia for Simple, Easy Times
I have been puttering in the kitchen a bit, but what I've been preparing is fast and mundane and not blog-worthy: Broccoli-cauliflower salads, tossed salads with whatever is on hand, roasted chicken with rice.
I sneaked home for lunch the other day and tossed some lettuce in a bowl, along with some thin slices of red onion, a doze grapes and a few mandarin orange segments.
Simple. Good. But maybe not blog worthy.
I have been spending a lot of time online, dreaming. Not only have I been yearning for travel, but I've been looking back to other times, simpler times. It seems to me that there are many, many signs that we are headed in the wrong direction on many levels. Way to much hatred and bitterness than is healthy for a country.
I've come to the conclusion that growing when I did was a good thing. From the comments I've read online, it seems a lot of us feel that way.
The photo was taken at the Village St. Paul in Paris. It was taken in spring and it looks springy.
