Roasted Salad, The Silkworm, and Embracing What You Love

Let's talk about embracing what you love with wide open arms instead of hiding it under the bed or in your junk drawer or in that awful cabinet where leftover containers and their lids go to part company forever. No? Just me? Okay. That's fine.

 I embraced this salad into my stomach almost as fast as I embraced that book itno my head.

I've been on a bend recently. It's not one that I was planning on sharing with you or anyone besides my Kindle, really, but honestly, I'm way too into this bend to be able to keep quiet any longer: I am so. totally. obsessed. with the Cormoran Strike mystery novels that J.K. Rowling wrote as Robert Galbraith. So obsessed that since I prepared this post, I've blown through the third and only remaining book of the series. I CAN'T HELP IT. So please go enjoy the post about book two of this series, The Silkworm, with the full knowledge that late last night, I finished the third book in the series and will never be able to walk alone in a city ever again. Cheers!

In other much more exciting news, it's still National Brain Tumor Awareness Month, and we are still going gray to celebrate survivors, remember those who have lost the battle, and raise awareness for research efforts. Here on Page & Plate, we're collaborating with TakeTHATTumor and celebrating #gograyinmay with healthy meals that fit any lifestyle. Today, that meal is roasted salad. I hear you over there, you people who don't believe that salad is a meal. IT IS. Or it is also a lovely side. Take your pick. no hard feelings. But just saying, I embrace salad as a meal ALL THE TIME.
