M-J’s Low-Carb Luncheon Salad

M-J’S LOW-CARB, HIGH PROTEIN LUNCHEON SALAD

Bacon bits, 1/3 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese, an avocado cut into pieces, Romaine lettuce and almond-coated white-meat chicken combine to make an elegant, high-protein luncheon dish.

I top this low-carb salad with home-made ranch dressing, which I create from mayonnaise, buttermilk, and/or sour cream, mixed with onion and garlic powders and dried parsley. When I don’t have the powdered onion and garlic, I will dice bits of fresh ones very fine and sauté them before mixing with the other ingredients. Add salt and green or white pepper to taste, then blend with a wire whisk.

Women’s Warm Winter Slippers at Target

OriginalLY PostED by M-J on 01/12/2008

These comfortable slippers are the next best thing to sheepskin, very comfortable and warm, with a non-skid sole to keep you from slipping and falling on slick floors. Ladies’ “Chandra” scuffs are faux-fur lined, real suede mules; they come in several colors. They’re a good deal at $16.99 per pair. My tests prove that they will not put scuff-marks on floors, despite their name!
