Spinach Salad

The simplest, bestest Spinach Salad eva'! My roommate during college used to make this often and it's all we would eat for dinner. It's extremely filling and full of flavor.

Bacon Bits (real or fake)
Hard Boiled Egg, sliced
Red Onion, thin slices
Balsamic Dressing

For the dressing, take a dry Italian packet and use balsamic for the vinegar.

You can layer the salad, or just dump the spinach in a bowl and sprinkle with the rest of the ingredients. I prefer the layer method, that way the goodies are throughout. The quantity of ingredients is all up to you.

Brandied Carrots

Mom makes this for most big dinners, or during Thanksgiving. I made it for TND last week. It was a huge hit! And why wouldn't it be, look what goes it in.
The carrots are all nice and shiny from the honey...Mom's original recipe!Nuff' said!

I used Brandy instead bourbon.

Brandied/Bourbon Carrots

baby carrots for 8-10 people
1/4 cup brandy or bourbon
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup butter

Saute all together until tender crisp.
