  And today’s Flashback Friday recipe, a salad from the archives that is so colorful and unique! Plus, it tastes amazing! 

Um, sooooo, it’s not actually 100% oven free because of the cornbread muffins, but I still shared it.

Forgive me? 

  I use my toaster oven, so I didn’t have to heat the whole house.  That helps, right?!  :)  You could also buy some cornbread muffins from your bakery and crumble those.

Thank you for all your sweet birthday messages!  I was so blessed to log into my email at the end of the day to find 190-some birthday messages awaiting me. Made my day!  30 doesn’t feel a bit different from 29, guess I was already feeling old and tired?  :)  Like Dale always says, the number 30 doesn’t make you old, it’s the 4 young children that take care of that!!!!!

On to food, one of my favorite topics, you are going to love this one!
