“We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.”  Benjamin Franklin

Today I’m going to have a salad for lunch.  It’s one of those “time to clean out the fridge” salads.  I also did a trip to one of my favorite markets and picked up some jars of pickled and marinated veggies.  These would include Brussel sprouts, asparagus, and artichoke hearts.  Love them.  They’ll be a nice addition.

Also, I have half a clam shell of greens sitting in the fridge, and a mystery package I pulled out of the freezer, which turns out to be smoked salmon.   No brainer!

The greens, I must admit, are generally purchased with money and resolve.  I’m usually not in the mood for greens, but I purchase them because I know their nutritional value.  I love veggies, but prefer them substantial and roasted.  However, with enough cover from the salmon and marinated veggies I’ll be good to go, as will the greens.

Using my loveliest, chipped bowl, I assembled the salad and put it into the fridge.  Recently, I found that if I pre-prepare my meals in the morning and have them ready to eat or zap, my day is less stressful.  Also, preparing my food before I’m fully awake makes it more difficult for me to rationalize iffy choices.  I’m generally filled with good intentions early in the day.

Lesson of the day – If you see me eating a salad in a restaurant, I’ve been kidnapped and am trying to signal you.
