was actually a 3 X 3 Dinner Group ~
commenced this weekend!
"Mr. Ed" and I were asked to bring the Salad!
So~o~o. . .
While watching Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond made the best looking Salad, which I copied from Food Network. When viewing our local Food Network station, I often copy recipes and stash them away until an occasion arises for something new or different!
