I’m heading into the home stretch with my manuscript and due to turn it in next week. It’s all happening a lot more quickly than I ever expected. The March 2014 release still seems like it’s decades away, but I know it’ll be here before I know it based solely on how quickly this manuscript deadline arrived.
I’ve got another great blogger here to share with you today. If you’re not following Donya at A Southern Soul, you certainly should be! She’s sharing some great food over that way. I’ve not known her for long, but already know that she’s good people. Y’all also jump over to her Facebook page and show her some love from the Southern Bite family and make her feel welcomed. I am so grateful to her and her willingness to take the reigns. Take it away, Donya…Well, I’ve got to say it straight up y’all, I am just beside myself with excitement that Stacey invited me to be a guest writer today! As you know, he’s been so busy with his new cookbook and then had unexpected surgery. I am honored he asked for a “stand-in” and hope you enjoy hanging out with me today.
Springtime has finally arrived along with warmer weather. Those two things make me think of cooking outdoors and fresh salads. With those thoughts in mind, I combined several delicious ingredients that my family loves – grilled shrimp, bacon, and spinach. I turned these three into a wonderful salad that makes a complete meal. Just add a little crusty bread and you are done!
I wanted to share this recipe with you today because of this – Stacey and I have never met in person. We’ve become friends via our blogs, our love of food and our love of where we’re from. Which got me to thinking…that if we lived closer to each other, I have the feeling that we’d be sitting on my back porch, enjoying this salad, taking in the sunshine and sharing great stories of food and family. Thanks, friend…
I hope you all will give this salad a try and stop by to hang out with me at A Southern Soul.
Counting my blessings,
