Better than Lame

Written by , Posted in Thoughts

SimpleOrangeSaladIt’s citrus season. We have more oranges than we know what to do with.

This is a good problem to have.

We eat them raw, on salads (I made an Asian Chicken Salad the other night and added mandarin oranges. It was delicious!!), in smoothies, and now, as a sweet side.

On Thursdays I usually have lunch with some girlfriends. We alternate hosting duties and collaborate on the food. It’s always a good time. I’m thankful for such sweet friends. This week we were at Jo‘s house. She made (the most amazing) French Onion Soup. You know how much I love soup, right?! French Onion is one of my favorites. And with gruyère cheese on top!? Goodnight! Wish I was eating it again right now.

I didn’t have any ideas for something to go with the soup.

I guess my brain was done.

I was going to bring 4 or 5 oranges and peel them there.

That would have been fine. And a little lame.

Instead, I made something up.
