Happy Food and Wine Wednesday!

Personally, I love ice cream. Like, really, really, REALLY love ice cream. (What can I say? I’m my father’s daughter!) If I could get away with it, I’d have ice cream at every meal. Heck, there’s a pretty good chance it’d be all I’d have! But that fantasy comes with a price – mainly at the waistline as well as feeling yucky-tired all the time. Who wants that?

Since ice cream for the rest of my life isn’t happening, I have to figure out a way to balance it out, so I turn to my fave standby: salads! An awesome combination of greens and protein makes for a happy tummy. 🙂

A few weeks ago I was in Central Oregon where I met with fellow romance author-pal Marie Harte for lunch at La Rosa. I found this on the menu:

Really, I couldn’t think of a better meal to go with the great writing conversation! And, yeah, I had ice cream later. . .. 😉

Are you a salad fan? What’s your fave combination?

Happy Eating,
