Hi Guys! Thank you so much for all the wonderful advice for my run this Sunday…we’ll see how it goes! Our last new recipe before the big game (you know, the puppy bowl) is a wedge salad. Man, I really love these things. I know a lot of people turn their nose up to iceberg lettuce, but I love it. I love its crisp-juiciness…is that a thing? Who knows. All I know is that I love iceberg and I love a good wedge salad. I also feel like if there’s going to be any “salad” at all, sitting around on Sunday…shouldn’t it be one with salty, crispy prosciutto? that’s also drowning in a gallon of rich and creamy bleu cheese dressing? Me thinks so. If you don’t fancy a wedge salad, maybe delicious Korean Fried Chicken Wings are your thing? Or Beer Battered Fried Olives? Or even Kitchen Sink Chili? Just a thought, that’s all. Hope everyone has a great weekend….and let the best puppy win! xx, Jenny
