Sweet Potato Spinach Salad

This is a great summer salad!

This is a great summer salad!

With the summer heat already here, it’s the perfect time to start eating our salads again! Don’t know why but the winter months just doesn’t spur up our appetite to munch on salads as a main meal but when the heat kicks in, its bar the door Katey, here we come a knocking! Just loved this combination of veggies, cheese and bacon and it will grace our plates again before too long; I mean, who doesn’t like spinach, sweet taters, lotsa red onion, feta cheese and crispy fried onions?

Of course, husband and daughter had to add extra ingredients to theirs which I thought would take away from the taste I wanted to accomplish, their problem not mine! I also used a little bacon fat drizzled over the top of mine, which I got severely scolded for by my daughter, it’s something I do very, very seldom so give me a break!!! They both used a three cheese Italian dressing which did go very well to.

We also tried Nabisco’s new Sweet Potato Good Thins which were over the top as a compliment to the salad. If you haven’t tried these new baked treats from Nabisco, you should put them on the top of your grocery list. They also come in other flavors which are just as good……………

Sweet Potato Spinach Salad
  • Amounts will depend on how much salad you will be making:
  • Fresh spinach, washed and drained
  • Sweet potatoes, peeled, cubed and cooked until tender
  • Bacon, fried or baked until crisp
  • Red onions sliced into rings
  • Crumbled Feta cheese
  • Salad dressing of your choice
  1. Arrange a bed of spinach on a plate.
  2. Top with remaining ingredients and finish off with your dressing.

Hope you enjoy! Oh, we did make it to the Air Show and it was wonderbar to say the least! Even got to meet some of the pilots before the main attraction, almost forgot I was with Husband, ha ha, just joking!! If you’ve never been to one of these air shows, don’t hesitate as they are some of the most down to earth guys and gals you’d ever want to meet and they are so appreciative of your support by just being there!

     Greek Meatloaf

Wow, if you want to have a different flavor for your meatloaf, you gotta try this!

Noodles with cheese sauce was a great side.

Noodles with cheese sauce was a great side.

The other day Kenny and I were doing a little grocery shopping at Publix Supermarket and as it was around lunch time, a lady was giving away free samples of Olive-Feta Burgers. You know what happened next, we were both trying these babies and although I am not a fan of olives at all, I bit and loved them……… Now, some of the ingredients were not in the burgers themselves but on top of the burgers as a garnish. I got talking to the lady who was serving us and she had the same idea that I had, MEATLOAF! I don’t know if she ever got to try it but Kenny and I were rarin’ to go home and put one of these together and hence, a winner again!

Greek Meatloaf
  • 1-1/2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 4 oz feta cheese
  • 4 tbsp chopped black olives
  • 1 teas Greek seasoning ( I used Cavender's all purpose Greek seasoning)
  • ½ cup chopped red onion
  • ⅓ cup chopped cherry tomatoes plus extra tomatoes sliced for topping
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 4 tbsp dill vegetable dip
  • 2 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup plain dry bread crumbs
  1. Combine all ingredients and mix well.
  2. Place in a loaf pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. Bake in a 350 degree oven and cook for 1 hour.
  4. Top with remaining cherry tomatoes that have been sliced and continue cooking for another 30 minutes.

We surely enjoyed this along with some homemade garlic knots and cooked noodles tossed with butter and more garlic! Needless to say, no kisses good night and lotsa toothpaste before bed, ha ha…….(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) In Greece, meatloaf is referred to as rolo (Ρολό) and it is usually filled with hard boiled eggs. Our next adventure?

On a quick note for those of our friends who have been following us, Kenny got some more excellent news from the doctor yesterday as his heart is getting stronger as we speak! Of course now I am getting razzed about having to put up with him for much longer than expected, poor me? Oh HELL not, I mean who would be my photographer and editor-in-chief, chuckle chuckle!!!!!
