Indeed, even on the darkest days, this delicious platter of Massaged Kale and Strawberry Salad could make you grin with a joy.
I had incredible few days with my girls. Three or four hours passed by like it was 20 minutes, but that’s always the feeling when I am with my awesome girlfriends.
Well, we like walking around the neighborhood, coffee time, breakfast, chuckling.
Honestly, that makes me happy. More often than not, we talk about what we will make for lunch, or that is my thing.
I assume in light of the fact that I generally begin that discussion.
Since I talk about things that make me happy at the moment, I often sit in my yard and think about pretty much everything.
I came to the conclusion that life is simple, but we make it so complicated sometimes, well, most of the time.
My oldest son would say just about now: “No dip, Sherlock.”
Small things do fulfill me, satisfy me, make me happy. On the other hand, to better clarify regardless of the fact that it’s cliché somehow.
Nonetheless, the fact is that I am simple person. Even those little things are acknowledged, appreciated more than you would suspect.
I am thankful for anything great that comes my way. I cry even when I am happy, but, of course, those are always tears of joy.
A few days ago, my 9 years old returned home from school, parked his tush on the sofa, turn on his Gameboy while waiting for me to fix him quick after-school snack.
All of the sudden I heard a melody that I haven’t heard in quite a while. I was shocked that he even knows the song, let alone the lyrics.
Without interrupting, I let him sing it. “What’s up” song by 4 Non-Blondes came out in ’93, or that is the year when it became huge.
I still remember it like it was yesterday singing every day when it came on MTV.
“And I say, hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah… I said hey, what’s going on?”
That made me smile, smile big…
Delightful sounds of music could fill your heart with joy, much the same as this delicious plate dependably fill my heart with joy.
Makes my day somewhat brighter, somewhat more content, a little happier even when I am feeling blue, or down.
The taste is astounding, since kale is a solid dull green vegetable, and strawberries adjust that exceptionally well in your gut.
I included a modest amount of organic cashews for additional crunch and nutrition, seasoned with sea salt, and massaged kale in this divine and simple homemade vinaigrette.
I hope you like it as much as I did. It is probably one of my top 5 favorite salads ever.
