To say that you and Mike spoiled me on Sunday is quite an understatement.  I hope we see pictures of the delicious food that you prepared with no cow products.   I can’t believe that I left my camera’s  memory card at home, and had no time to find a replacement, so have no pictures of my own. Thank you for everything, including makeup that I wore on Sunday without having an allergic reaction  YEAH!!!!!!!

Here’s the recipe you requested, one of my favorites.

Mandarin Orange Salad

1/4 cup silvered almonds         

4 teaspoons sugar     

Mix sugar and almonds in non-stick pan.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves.


1 large head romaine                                

1/2 cup olive oil                                         

 1/4 cup sugar                                             

1/4 cup vinegar

1 tablespoon parsley

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 dashes hot sauce

1 bunch green onion, thinly sliced

1 can mandarin oranges

Mix oil, sugar, vinegar, salt, hot sauce, and green onion.  Chill.

Slice romaine into one inch pieces.  Place in bowl.  Sprinkle almonds on top of lettuce.  Mix dressing, add mandarin oranges, gently stir.  Pour over lettuce.
