Okay, I know I have said it before but I love Spring.  Right now I am going through a ready to mix it up food wise phase.  I am ready for Spring produce and wine.  I know wine is good at any time!  I just get excited to go wine tasting this time of year.  Although it may be a little harder to do that now...  because nobody will look at you weird if you bring a baby to a wine tasting, right??  I guess we need to invite some grandparents to come stay.

This salad, oh this salad.  It is by far one of my favorite salads ever and the only salad I can get myself to order when we eat at one of our favorite restaurants in town.  There are soooo many good sounding salads there too.  I just love this one so much and since we rarely eat out it makes it hard to order something different.  It is a super simple salad, but the few ingredients it features are some of my favorites... figs, blue cheese, prosciutto, chicken and a peach dressing.  Yum.
