DAY FORTY THREE:

green apple, celery, white onion, toasted pecans & goat cheese on red leaf lettuce + thin slices of garlic crusted roast beef…so tasty!
The rest of the fam had this:  http://www.canadianliving.com/food/garlic_crusted_sirloin_tip_roast_with_mushroom_gravy.php which is a fantastic method to cook a roast.  I have used this recipe many, many times, using less expensive cuts of meat and it turns out perfect every single time. Recommend!  I felt like something zingy, and that was satisfied with this salad.  Dressing was a simple mix of lemon juice, mayo, red wine vinegar, evoo, salt & pepper.
