Spinach Salad and Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

For my readers that have been running to the store and then making all of my recipes as soon as I post them, you will notice that you have some extra bean sprouts, bacon and eggs from the Thai pizza and baked egg breakfast. Solution: Spinach Salad. Really easy.

For the salad, mix together:

2 bunches spinach
A handful of bean sprouts
1 small can of chopped water chestnuts
5 strips of bacon cooked and crumbled
2 hard boiled eggs

For the dressing, mix together:

1 cup olive oil
1/2 onion grated or chopped
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3/4 total of sugar and vinegar (either 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup vinegar or the other way around depending how you like it)
salt + pepper

Then, if you have a sweet tooth and realize you have already eaten all the chocolate in the house, make these easy peanut butter cookies. They will not win a blue ribbon at the state fair cookie contest, but they are good and easy.

Mix together:

1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg

Form in small balls and press down with a fork to flatten. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. If you didn't eat a good portion of the dough, it will make 24. Sprinkle with sugar.


  1. Just spoke to somebody that made these cookies from your blog and said they were so tasty!!! I bake a fresh batch of cookies every weekend and will make these the ones to try.
