Got Suh-lad?

I'm all into salads right now. Considering all the junk food I love, I guess that's not such a bad thing. I can't hear the word salad anymore without thinking of SpongeBob. There's an episode when Mr. Krab's daughter, Pearl starts working at the Krusty Krab. She gets rid of the burgers and puts "salad" on the menu. SpongeBob has no idea what it is and pronounces it "suh-lad". I don't know. I guess you had to be there. I just hear the word as suh-lad now.

Costco has some really good suh-lad stuff right now. Yesterday I bought a big mixture of lettuce greens. It's that really funky looking stuff. Seriously, some of it looks like the stuff Rick cusses at when he's mowing the lawn. But I like all those weeds and twiggy things, so it works. Costco also has mini cucumbers. Have you tried those? I never had until recently. They look like pickles, but taste like regular cucumbers. They're perfect to munch on all by themselves. So today my sah-lad featured a variety of funny looking weeds, some grape tomatoes, cukes, a fresh pepperonchini from our garden, a few croutons, a piece of string cheese cut up, some leftover peas, and some hunks of leftover turkey breast. I topped it off with a calorie-free bacon-ranch dressing. Maybe I'm a freak, but I love that kind of stuff.

I'm sure you'll all sleep better now that you know what I ate for lunch. I seriously came here to post a simple recipe for turkey breast. See what happens when you try to eat healthier? You're brain gets fried! There's no way I could be a full-time health food person. I'd go insane for sure. Anyway, the other night I cooked a boneless Butterball turkey breast in my crock-pot and it came out really, really good -- really! All I did was put it in my 6-quart pot, sprinkle a packet of onion soup mix over it, and top it with one thinly sliced onion. I cooked it for exactly 4-hours and it came out perfect. It's so easy, it's ridiculous. So, if you're looking for something easy, give it a try. After all, you can always use the leftovers in your suh-lad!


  1. Love salads. And I cook turkey breast in the crock pot too! So moist and tender that way.

  2. Ahh! Everyone is posting about food and now I want Suh-lad for breakfast too!

    There's a greek restaurant near work that has a dressing to die for. We buy the bottles (at exorbitant prices, natch) because they make salads taste sooooo good!

  3. Love the turkey breast idea, yummm. I've never cooked it in the crockpot so I'm going to try it. Also, I love salads with raw veggies cut up in them like summer squash, baby peas, and so on. Isn't Spongebob Squarepants a cutie?

  4. Sounds delish! I love salads but I'm on such a restricted diet these days there's a lot of things I'm not supposed to eat any more...sigh...

  5. You're hilarious. Of course we'll sleep better knowing what you had for lunch. ;)

    Now I want suh-lad!
