Tomato Radish and Turkey Salad with Parsley Gorgonzola Dressing

Parsley is an incredibly healthy food that many people do not know how to incorporate easily into meals. The dressing for this salad uses two full cups of fresh parsley, and is delicious beyond words.

For the Dressing:

8 oz. crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 c. fresh parsley, rinsed well and removed from stems
2 c. heavy cream
½ tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. coriander
1 c. mayonnaise

In a blender or food processor, combine all of the ingredients except the mayonnaise. When the mixture is well combined, transfer it to a medium sized bowl and fold in the mayonnaise until the mixture is smooth. Chill for one hour before serving.

For the Salad:

Add equal portions of each, depending on how many are being served, and the desired portion size:

fresh red tomato, thickly sliced
fresh red radish, thinly sliced
cold cooked turkey breast, cut into bite sized pieces
a sprinkle of salt to taste
parsley gorgonzola dressing

Slice the tomato thickly for the bottom layer of the salad, then layer the radish and turkey over it. Add a light sprinkling of salt to taste, and then top the salad with the parsley dressing. Enjoy!

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.
1.There is a big difference between a roach and a palmetto bug. Real roaches are the guys from New York. They infest, they are spooky smart, they are dirty and nasty, and you have to work really hard to get rid of them. Palmetto bugs however, are big and creepy and dumb. You usually see them outside at night and they will fly right at your face. They don’t infest because they are native and they can’t survive in our AC temps. 2.Every public indoor place will always be frigid. Most of your friend’s houses will be as well. I take a sweater with me almost everywhere that I go, and if I forget to I regret it. 3.Outside of weather emergencies, weathermen are superfluous. In the rainy season, which is most of the time, there is an eighty percent chance of rain, every single day. The weather man has no idea what time it will rain, how hard, or for how long, and there is no way for him to predict it. You just have to go out there with your fingers cr…

The Power Of Willful Ignorance

I watched a woman say these words in a speech a few moments ago and nothing could be more true...willful ignorance is insanely powerful. Willful ignorance is the reason that good German people allowed their neighbors to be dragged off by the Nazis in the middle of the night. It is the reason that American people choose to believe our homeless are lazy and irresponsible instead of facing the reality that their situations have arisen because of widespread mental illness and cooperate greed. It is the reason that you will pick up a steak on your way home from work tonight, not bothering to find out where it came from, because you just don’t want to know. The truth is too disgusting.
I have gone on about the meat industry quite a bit and my goal here is not to do that. I love to eat meat, I will state that again, but the example that comes from our consumption of factory meat is so powerful when it comes to explaining willful ignorance that I want to use it. Out of ALL of the many, many,…

Christmas in Florida

Christmas in Florida
December tenth today and I swam my thirty laps in the pool. It’s pretty chilly, but I don’t really feel it after the second lap. I am so grateful that I am able to keep swimming this late into the season. My body responds much better to swimming than it does to running, and I still get a great cardio work out.
This is our seventh or eighth Christmas in Florida now. To be honest, it wasn’t much of an adjustment for me. I have lived in climates where we got tons of snow. I even graduated from high school in Northern Michigan, but I really don’t miss it. I am a worrier, so snow just makes me think of bad roads and car accidents. I think snow is absolutely gorgeous, but I don’t like the cold. I would be perfectly happy if snow stayed on mountains. I would visit it to ski.
I finally convinced my husband for the first time this year that we really did not need a tree. He is partial to real ones, and I have no real love for artificial trees. Not once in all of the years…
