    Looks yummy. Are you going by the SP meal plan or is that a meal of your own design?

    Nice! As I was driving into town this week, I saw tons of workers and tons of berry boxes, so it is strawberry city around here, glad you are getting to enjoy them too.

This is strawberries & greens, a recipe I adapted from one served at a restaurant in TX. I replaced blue cheese with feta, since I donít like it. And you can use any kind of greens--I usually use spinach & combo of red & green leaf lettuce.
Feta 1 oz
Strawberries, fresh 1/4-1/2 c halves
Onions, sliced thin 1/8-1/4 c
Spinach 2 cups
Red/green leaf lettuce 2 cups
Pecans 5 halves, chopped
Newmanís Own
Raspberry Walnut 2 tbsp

Nutrients are for the higher quantities of strawberries & onions

    I make a salad almost exactly like that all the time for lunch... except I'm always craving a tang and the Newman's dressing is too sweet for me, so I do a reduced balsamic vinaigrette:)

    I love fruit/yogurt smoothies. I started drinking them myself and I just think how much better that is than a milkshake!

This meal consists of items made from two SP recipes:
crustless spinach, onion & feta quiche
and corn bread
I usually add 1/2 t-1 tsp of butter to corn bread, but it's so good I sometimes just eat it plain.

Delicious, simple & crowd-pleasing. Depending on how much extra I have, I usually freeze the corn bread & have both refrigerated & frozen the quiche. Never tried it, but could probably freeze the quiche before baking.
