This Quick Easy Green Salad Recipe is made with a delicious Clementine Vinaigrette (thank you, Aggie’s Kitchen).

Fresh greens and yummy dried mandarin orange slices (Sun Tropics) that we found at Costco, with gorgonzola cheese, nuts, and pomegrante seeds!

It’s so quick and easy.

Whip up this Clementine Vinaigrette.

The perfect holiday salad!

I was looking through my photos, reminiscing a bit about our home we left in May, where we lived and raised our kids for eleven years, when we had a snowy Christmas.

And then our new small home (yes, it’s tight with five of us right now) in central Oregon. We love all the snow, and mountain living!

It’s all about attitude and gratitude, folks! Look around us! We have enough for today, blessings right in front of us.

I know Christmas is hard for many. But the blinders of expectations can cheat the true blessings. Expectations can be the killers of true gratitude and joy!

One year later, in this snowy mountain home, we focus on the blessings and where God has us today, where we are no longer hooked by expectations or externals.

“It seems to me that we often, almost sulkily, reject the good that God offers us because, at that moment, we expected some other good.” – C S Lewis

It’s really a peace and contentment through the blessings of Christmas (Christ coming to earth and living in our hearts) that brings true joy!

What will be on your menu this weekend?

  1. We are making clam chowder tonight (I’m doing a regular and a non-dairy version), then tomorrow morning homemade cinnamon rolls, and for dinner BBQ ribs, baked mac and cheese, cole slaw, green beans and lots of sweet goodies.

    Merry Christmas to you!
