    What a fantastic idea for a post! I love every one and I’m afraid I might be craving that salad all day. :)

    I know it’s only 8 in the am here in Arizona but can I come for lunch? And then we could sit for a while on your wonderful porch and discuss the best whites for kitchen cabinets and neat vignettes and projects to create and other great reads and then maybe the briefest of a “lean back and drift off” in your great chairs before I head for home. Can I come? Can I? Can I?

    Oh that salad, yum. I’ve been making one similar, but with chicken, that we just can’t get enough of. I think it’s called Chipotle Chicken Cobb Salad.

    Also love the idea of using a trifle bowl for a beverage container. It would look cute with tiny bottles.

    Oops, it’s called Mexican Cobb Salad with Chipotle Dressing. Really fantastic.
