Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Italian Wedge Salad from Carino's: Delicious!

While in Bend, Oregon, we went to dinner at Carino's Italian Restaurant. While the consensus is that it was "okay" (we like the Olive Garden better overall), I did have the best salad I've ever eaten! Heaven on a plate. It's not really a salad to eat to be healthy. I want to try and replicate at home so I can eat it every night for dinner this summer.

The menu describes it thus:

The combination of strong flavors was fantastic. The apples were very tart- I'm guessing granny Smiths. Apparently, I love cheeses. I grew up eating Kraft singles. I don't drink wine, so wine tasting is out, but isn't there cheese tasting somewhere? That night was the first time I had Gorgonzola cheese, and it was awesome! The bacon nearly killed me with it's perfect texture. Whoever was on shift at Carino's that night knew what they were doing. I'm drooling just thinking about it.
