Weekend Cooking

For the last several weeks I have not had much time to cook. Today, even though I had to work, I came home and quickly made a batch of Cheeseburger Soup. It is chilly and windy out, so this is the perfect cold weather food.

Last night my mom had one of her brothers and his wife over for supper. In addition to Janssen's recipe for Crockpot Chicken Chili that I passed on to my mom, she made a great salad. I have thrown together the basics of it, with the idea that I will mix up the dressing and just add some to the lettuce/cauliflower base as needed since adding dressing will make it all soupy and the lettuce soft and mushy.
Here's the recipe:

1 head lettuce, chopped
1 head cauliflower, chopped

1 sliced red onion

2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

2 c. seasoned croutons (adding later)

2 c. cashews (I'm adding these later, too)


1 c. Miracle Whip

1/2 c. sugar

1/4 c Paremsan cheese

fresh ground pepper

Combine dressing. Add croutons, nuts and dressing just before serving.

I'm looking forward to having this for supper during the school week. I think it sounds just about perfect and would be a great side for a piece of fish, chicken or even steak.
