Three Course Lunch

Even though she can be completely frustrating one minute, she certainly makes up for it the next.


We’ve walked, played a little, eaten, and napped.


She is good for helping me rest and trying to get rid of this headache.

I needed to eat the rest of my soup from yesterday, so I heated that up while I put together a big salad.


We’re going to Nick’s parents house again this weekend so we can do Christmas with his sister and her husband, so I’m trying to make sure we eat stuff from the fridge this week. This salad helped me use up the last of the lettuce from last night.


  • romaine
  • carrot
  • scallions
  • radish
  • craisins
  • pecans
  • dressing of olive oil, balsamic + dijon


The soup was just as good reheated today. I do like homemade soups better than canned/boxed, but this one was actually pretty good. Not too thin and it had a lot of flavor.


And instead of a chocolate plate (I’m saving that for dessert :) ), I had an Oikos with some apricot conserve + almonds.


Right now, I’m cuddling a sleepy puppy and going to take a break from looking at this screen – my head seems to get worse when I’m looking at the computer :\


Do you like radishes? What do you do with them?


  1. I haven’t had radishes since I was a kid. I didn’t like them back then but maybe I should give them another try (tastes change drastically)!

  2. Isn’t having a puppy fun!! These past few days home sick would have been so lonely without Lucy Dog – I love having her around :)

    As for radishes, I think I forget that I like these bc I never seem to buy/eat them but whenever I randomly do I am always pleased! Also, I can’t remember if you have read Molly Wizenberg’s A Homemade Life (?) however she has a great simple radish serving idea that this just reminded me of! Mmmm :)

  3. wow that salad looks ahmazing :D I love when lunch has parts to it!

    never had radishes before.

  4. loving all the courses in your meal. if one thing can get rid of a headache, it is maggie. what a darling little sleeper :) hope your headache is long gone, brandi!

  5. Lol I don’t think I have ever even bought radishes. I guess they are alright though.

  6. oh Maggie makes me melt!!! I’m sure you savor those moments when she naps :)

  7. Maggie is sooo cute! :)

    I love radishes. I enjoy them all by themselves but also in salads.

  8. Puppies are a love hate relationship at times.

    I love radishes quartered and dipped in dressing like baby carrots.

  9. I do like radishes but I understand why a lot of people don’t. I think you either love them or hate them, but I find that if you slice them very thin, they are more enjoyable then eating them whole.

    Have a wonderful time doing another Christmas! Love that it never ends! :)

  10. Your salad is so colorful. It looks delicious. Craisins are popping up in all kinds of recipes. The puppy is darling too!

  11. That sweet puppy does seem like the perfect prescription for a headache :)

    I’ve never tried radishes! But your salad ingredients sound really good, inspires me to get more creative with my salads.

  12. omg puppy naps are the best! you just wanna hold them so they sleep in your lap :) your pup is the cutest ever!

  13. You are absolutely KILLING me with this puppy cuteness! what a sweet little bean! (and yes – I remember when we first got Lando – I was SO excited when we brought her home, and about a week later – I thought to myself “Holy COW, what did I get myself in to”) – I’m pretty sure that was after a week straight of sleepless nights because every two minutes she was crying! I promise – being a puppy parent gets easier!

  14. I like radishes but never buy them for some reason.

    Sleeping puppies are the cutest!
