my dan is not a big salad eater.
truth be told, he eats no salad whatsoever.
if we have a night where he needs to be out at a meeting or an event
& it's just the girls and myself for dinner,
i'll declare it chick food night.
that usually gets a resounding amen.
they love light fare, salads & girly things that my meat & potatoes guy would rather pass on.
so the other day we served up the oriental cabbage salad that's been around the block & has a few variations.
i used radicchio & think i'll stick with the sweeter red cabbage
but it's still yummy nonetheless.
1 head napa cabbage shredded
i add in red cabbage or radicchio
5 green onions chopped
brown 2 oz slivered almonds
1/2 jar sesame seeds
pack of crumbled ramon noodles
with 1/2 c butter ( yeah, i know)
wisk 1/2 c sugar
1/4/ cup vinegar
1/2 c oil
1 Tbsp soy sauce
dress just prior to serving
a couple weeks ago i stumbled upon these fabulous dishes from Home Goods.
the smaller bowls i picked up last year at Heliotrope in Decatur for you local girls,
but the blues match perfectly.
the white plates are sorta asymmetrical around the border
& have a cute modern italian flare.
i pulled out my painting from melanie
a couple weeks ago. when i saw the plates i knew i had to add them to my collection.
i usually don't keep our place settings out but they're so cheerful
i couldn't resist.
i am loving my narnia sign that i commissioned tara & andy to create.

i'm photographing 1 year old twins in the morning

i might just sack out in the chair!
