Thank all of you for you kind comments about the kitchen. I will do my best to post pictures Thursday afternoon or Friday morning of the real stuff that happens in there.
Quite a few of you mentioned you would like to turn this into an event. So....for anyone interested, post as many pictures as you like of your kitchen as you are preparing the feats of all feasts, feel free to include your dining area, your guests, the whole enchilada!
Post by Friday and let me know in the comment section if you would like to patrticipate so I can be sure to visit your blog.
How many of you have had a Carrot and Rasin Salad recently? This is an old school salad that still rocks! I was yenning for this big time last week.
Peel 4 carrots and slice in the food processor or grater. Add in 1/2 cup of raisins. Stir in 1-1/2 tablespoons of mayonnaise. That's all there is to it! This keeps in the fridge for about 2 days. Yes, you can keep coming back for more!
Some recipes call for lemon juice. I don't normally add lemon juice but I did this time and won't ever do it again. It made the salad too tart and it didn't have that nutty, comforting feeling that I was anticipating.
Other tweaks you can add are chopped pecans or chunks of pineapple.
This is a Fall salad that I truly enjoy...hope you try it soon!
