Happy Little Salad

Isn’t this a happy little salad?

Happy Salad

The answer is, “Yes. Yes, it is.”

It’s cherry tomatoes, boiled potatoes, sugar snap peas, cucumbers, and mushrooms, tossed with Italian salad dressing.

And it was very very good. And it made us happy.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: What food makes your main character happy in their mouth? Blood, brains, and human flesh don’t count — sorry.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I bought beautiful lettuce today and thought of you. I have been eating frozen steamed vegetables you cook in the microwave.
    I went to the store and found the most delicious greens (organic) I could find. ๐Ÿ™‚
