No really, I ate it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A salad. I. ate . a . salad. !!!!!!!! I ATE A SALAD! Did you hear me? I said "I ate a salad!" This is huge people! Monumental!

I've never eaten a salad in my life. Ever. Not one, single salad, in my entire life. 38 salad-free years. I'm not exaggerating. I make salads for O and the kids all the time, but I never touch them. I hate vegetables, all vegetables, with the exception of corn, and french-cut green beans. I don't eat vegetables, ever. But today, I ATE A SALAD! Granted, it was a small salad, and the only veggies it contained were a couple of different types of lettuce, and a bit of spinach. But it was still a salad. I added mandarin oranges, almond slivers and some grilled chicken breast, and topped it with a very small bit of fat-free raspberry-walnut vinaigrette.

And it wasn't horrible. I didn't gag even once. It wasn't great, I mean, it was certainly no bacon cheeseburger, but it wasn't bad, and something I could probably eat on a fairly regular basis. I didn't care for the dressing though, but seeing as I've never eaten a salad before, I know nothing about dressings (except for the ranch dressing I dip my chicken wings in LOL) but I think I'll go with something a little less sweet next time.

Congratulations on the salad debut! Very funny post. Looks delicious, by the way.

Would you mind if I add you to my blog roll?

Fuka-chan - Wow. I'm totally speechless! That is completely unbelievable! How is it possible that he's never been to McD's? How has he lived w/out ebi burgers all these years????

Lulu & Sara - See? All that nonsense about getting adequate nutrition while your preggers is complete hoo-ha! I didn't eat a single veggie during any of my pregnancy, and had fat, healthy babies everytime!

Gigi - O has always been surprised that I can make really great salads, considering how much I've always hated them!

Gina - Do you make lots of salads at home? I know if I could eat more it'd certainly help my weight loss!

ChrysMum - Thanks! And I'd love to be added to your blogroll!

Congrats on choking down the ruffage- I knew you didn't like them but I didn't know you had never even gone to the dark side even once- have you ever had your cholesterol checked?!?! Don't tell me because I have eaten so many salads I am sometimes just sick of chewing, and this is your first in 38 years, I will have a coronary if I find out that yours is better than mine!
