Sooner or later everyone eats their own words! Recently, this little girl has entered my life and made me eat mine! As I grow older and it takes me longer to do ANYTHING, including cleaning my house; I have always said I would NEVER have a house dog.

With that grilled meat or picnic meal, a nice cool salad might be a good accompaniment and I suggest this Corn Salad to perk up your meal! It is packed full of fresh flavor from the garden and very easy to put together.
