For me, getting an Airstream travel trailer ready for a big ski trip is a lot of fun.  Planning the days, developing recipes for meals ahead and the prospect of what lie ahead is really, really exciting! I still have quite a bit of work ahead of me but I am definitely making progress.  Thank goodness I have a daily “to do,” checklist otherwise I may just fall apart with everything that needs to be accomplished prior to our departure.  I feel very much on track as of this very moment.

It was a big day for me getting the Airstream ready and I knew I would be hungry.  I was craving a salad . . .

At my local organic grocery store the other day,  I saw the most amazing vegetable I have ever seen.  The sign above the neatly piled stack of pale green bulbs read, “watermelon radish.”  There it was, sliced in half with the most beautiful pink inside.  The pink drew me in . . . how beautiful it was!  I also picked up some edible flowers that I could absolutely not resist.  The colors made me feel happy.  I love radishes and thought I have tasted every variety imaginable until this beauty caught my eye.  Excited I was!
