Ten on Tuesday: 10 things to put in a salad

I assume these should be things I like? (And do I have to limit myself to ten? I do love my salad...)

1) fresh herbs (basil and dill, mostly, but sometimes tarragon, mint, or chives)
2) avocado
3) cucumbers
4) radishes
5) tomatoes
6) dried fruit (like Craisins)
7) toasted nuts
8) cheese (gorgonzola, feta, or tiny cubes of sharp cheddar)
9) croutons
10) celery

if I were to be allowed to continue, I would add

11) black beans (out of the can, rinsed and raised to room temperature)
12) carrots
13) lettuce (red leaf, Boston Bibb, arugula, endive...)
14) home-made salad dressing
15) heart-of-palm
16) baby potatoes, lightly boiled and sliced
17) corn
18) peas
19) pears
20) fresh blueberries

checking in

In the past few weeks I have

suffered through a bad cold
followed by nasty asthma
given myself a mild concussion on the cabinet door that pops open without making a sound (I stood up and knocked my head straight under it)
knit quite a lot
taken no pictures
put two raised beds into the garden
bought some plants and put them in, too (eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini, basil, and onions thus far)
also put mint into a pot on my porch
cooked some amazing food
once again, taken no pictures

I will try to pull myself together a bit this week.
