Keeping the house, the kids and the hubby without breaking the bank, the earth, the people I love, or myself.

Broccoli Salad (no bacon!)

1 Large head fresh broccoli
3 large apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 can mandarin oranges, drained (reserve juice)
1/3 c chopped walnut (or sunflower seeds)
1/2 c light miracle whip
juice from mandarin oranges

Cut broccoli into small florets, combine with apples and oranges (don't discard stems of broccoli, it's full of nutrition! Cut into bite size pieces and steam it one day for lunch!) Add dressing and mix. Add the juice from the mandarins a small amount at a time, until the texture and flavour is just right. Sprinkle nuts or seeds over the top just before serving. If you chill this for a while before serving, the flavours will blend better.

About Me

I am a happily married woman with four children and various cats and kittens (fosters). I love to read and my favourite authors are George RR Martin, Thomas Hardy, Raymond Carver, PD James, Kurt Vonnegut, J. K. Rowling, and Margaret Atwood. I know there are only three women in that list (and none of them American), so if you'd like to suggest some I'm willing to give them a shot! And yes, I am an American living in Canada. (Hence the nick -- CannedAm.) I like it here. There are things about the states that I miss, but my love is here and this country has things to offer that my own does not. Things that make my quality of life much better than it ever was in Ohio. Guess I'm stuck here. Though there's a nice spot in the Appalachian hills where I'd love to spend my retirement.
