WOOHOO! Let me say it again, readers. WHOOOOOHOOOOO!!! I just got my federal tax return and promptly paid off both my credit cards. No more credit card debt for me! What a great feeling!
This meal may seem simple, but it was all about celebration. I knew, when my right hand hit “pay” on my credit card website, I wanted to have a beer in my left hand. So yeah…this salad was totally planned around beer. (What…like you’ve never planned a meal around a drink before.)
As I tend to do with green salads, I don’t have amounts for the greens and vegetables here. Just use the amount that looks good to you, grab a beer, and enjoy!
