My Sister's Marvelous Go-To Crunchy Tossed Salad with Fresh Veggies

My sister introduced me to her marvelous crunchy salad when I recently visited her.  The genius of this flavorful salad is that she marinates the vegetables before adding to the lettuce, and all you have to do is toss right before serving!

This is the go-to salad for most entrees and her husband's absolute favorite!  I know you and yours will love this toothsome salad as much as we do!  It also makes a wonderful light meal with cooked shredded or sliced meat, shrimp or salmon.

Quick and Easy Eggs In A Cup

Whether you are in a rush or have limited cooking resources...you don't need a stove top to enjoy a nice soft scrambled egg or omelette. All you need is a microwave!  While staying in the guest suite of a relative's home recently, I prepared several eggs in a cup with various additions.  I shot a couple of photos with my phone after preparing one while there, as I did not bring my camera with me.

These eggs in a cup are fluffy and delicious, with or without cheese, or any other additional ingredients.  The one in the photos below is made with mozzarella cheese; however, you can use whatever cheese you prefer or have on hand. This method is so simple and delicious, that it is actually my favorite way to prepare them at home.

Eggs in a cup have been popular for some time now; but, if you haven't tried them yet, you'll be delightfully surprised how easy and good they are!  It might take a time or two to adjust the cooking time to your microwave; however, you'll find the method incredibly quick and easy!

                                                My Favorite Way...
                                     With Lots of Gooey, Melted Cheese!
