The Bowl of Wisdom

I love bowls – I have many of them.  My kids and husband tease me all the time about the quantity of bowls I have stashed in the kitchen cabinets; all different shapes and sizes.  I had a garage sale last weekend and had a hard time selling any of my bowls even though I had plenty not in use that I could have sold.  Maybe I need to go to “bowl re-hab”…

In the summer we make a lot of salads – big bowls are great to serve salads from.  Nice round high sides to toss the ingredients and then scoop out.  We made homemade pizza the evening before the garage sale so the next evening I whipped up a salad from left overs in the refrigerator.  Italian salami (sopressata), fresh mozzarella, red onion, steam green beans, artichoke hearts, green olives, roasted peppers, cherry tomatoes, cheese, etc… Tossed with some romaine and drizzled with a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Finished with some coarse ground sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and we had our selves one delicious salad … in one very attractive ceramic bowl I might add!

I have some pictures of the salad – in the bowl.  btw – I did not sell the bowl you see in the picture, it’s just too pretty.  Enjoy the beginning of your summer by tossing your cares aside this Memorial Day weekend and relaxing.  Enjoy a salad full of delicious fresh ingredients tossed in your own bowl of wisdom.
