I thought that today I'd give a shout-out to poor Rudee, who has been such a good sport for taking all the teasing I give her about not liking eggs.
Although I do have to pause for a moment and think about that. How can you *not* like eggs?
OK. Moving on.
Rudee shared a recipe with me that I made for Thanksgiving.
It's easy, and very pretty. You mix 1 cup chopped cranberries, 2 cups diced red apple, 1 cup diced celery, 1 cup red seedless grapes cut in half, and 1/4 cup toasted and chopped walnuts. You could also add 1/3 cup raisins, but Rudee noted that she doesn't use them, and I didn't either. Isn't it pretty, all bright and festive?
But we're not done yet.
Next I combined 8 ounces of vanilla yogurt (the recipe called for low-fat, but when I went to the grocery store, the choice was full-fat or non-fat--and shockingly, I opted for the latter) with 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Then toss with the nummies in the other bowl.
Cranberry Waldorf Salad. Totally delightful, and such a nice contrast to the rest of the Thanksgiving table, laden with starch and protein as it was. Everyone loved it. I do believe there's a strong possibility it will reappear at Christmas.
So, Rudee, I guess I forgive you for not liking eggs. Even if most of the time, I'd have to view that as a major character flaw.
