Suggestions?? Anyone?

Readers/comments (not sure which) have been scarce lately...I know it's partially my fault because I haven't had too much to write about lately, and because I've been really busy the past few weeks. Now that I only have 4 days of work left, my schedule will be opening up very my question for you is...what would you like to see more of on my blog? Are there specific infertility (or non-infertility) topics that you would like to read more about? Any other suggestions on how to attract more readers to my blog?

Also, I'm looking for a really great salad recipe to take to our church picnic on can be a pasta salad, veggie salad, non-traditional salad...anything really! I need suggestions, people! Thanks everyone!!

Hmm, I have a lot of salad recipes that you might like but I'm trying to think of one that won't get too soggy at something like a picnic.

The only one I can think of that won't get too soggy is a homemade ceaser dressing. I have a couple that you could make the dressing ahead of time and then just put on the salad right before serving, including an orange salad, and a strawberry salad. :)

My vote is for a macaroni salad :)

I'm sorry I've been a bad blog commenter lately. Now that I'm home I will try and comment more!

Hey Teri! I'm a faithful reader, just not always a commenter. :) Maybe you could try 4 bean salad: pick any 4 cans of beans (black, kidney, green, and garbanzo are what I use), throw in about 1/4 cup each of chopped celery, onion, and bell pepper. To make the dressing, bring 1/2 cup of olive oil, 1/2 cup of cider vinegar, and 1/2 cup of sugar to a boil and then cool it to room temp. Dress your beans and veggies and refrigerate overnight. There's no mayo or eggs, so it's fine to sit out at a picnic. :)

Things have been busy around here, too. T-ball every Sat. plus once during the week. Two HOA meetings in less than a week and a Architectural Control Committee meeting at my house.

Here is a salad I love to take places. So good!!
BLT Pasta Salad

2 cups uncooked pasta
5 green onions, finely chopped
1 large tomato, diced
1-1/4 cups diced celery
1-1/4 cups mayonnaise
5 teaspoons white vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
1/8-1/4 tsp pepper
1 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water. In large bowl, combine the pasta, onions, tomatoes, and celery. In small bowl, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, salt, & pepper. Pour over pasta mixture and toss to coat. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours. Just before serving, add bacon.

I read everything you post, just don't always click through my reader to comment.

I posted my favorite broccoli salad recipe last week on my main blog- it's quick and easy, and always goes over well.

I also have a good corn salad-- it's kind of unusual, but everyone seems to like it. Combine 2 cans of drained corn (sometimes I get the white/yellow), 1 drained jar of sliced green olives/pimento, 1 bunch of chopped green onions, 1 chopped green pepper, and about half a bottle of fat-free Italian salad dressing. Chill before serving.
