The hearty whole grain wheat bulgur will add a nutty flavor to any salad. Combine it with feta, cucumber, red onions, and kalamata olives for a Greek style salad.
Whipped, The Blog
It is so odd how we are born with unique palates and preferences. Our oldest daughter is much more like a normal carb-loving kid. She is somewhat picky about meat, adores pasta and pancakes and is always bargaining for sweets. We knew something was different about Baby Whipped (who is now Toddler Whipped) when she turned away from her cupcake on her first birthday. Gasp!
Over the past year, we have discovered that the little one has an affinity for kalamata olives, broccoli, cucumbers and feta cheese. She likes to torture herself by repeatedly trying spicy things. She shudders, her eyes water, she guzzles milk and giggles as she goes at it again.
Our little rascal has been known to sneak sips of coffee when she finds unattended mugs. Don’t call the authorities. We don’t let her drink caffeine. I just find it interesting that she even expresses an interest in them.
My food hasn’t exemplified the utmost creativity of late. I’m starting to weave new recipes back into the fold. But, there have been a lot of standbys, or variations on a theme. We almost always keep good quality feta cheese in our refrigerator from a local ethnic grocer. I have found that feta, kalamata olives, red onion and cucumber can be added to almost anything to make a delicious meal. Mix the combo with pasta, salad greens, chopped chicken or quinoa. Drizzle with a little olive oil and red wine vinegar and you’ve got a meal.
