Chopped salad with Ginger Dressing

This is a delicious salad which is great on his own or as a side dish.  

Crunchy, healthy and delicious.  Great vegetarian food or a side dish with spicy grilled prawns.

Did you let 10 seconds ruin the whole day?

It was a great day today, loads got done, I managed to achieve more than I expected but then my mood crashed.  A throwaway comment passed onto me third hand brought me back down to earth with a bump and I did it, I very nearly let it ruin my day.

I saw a post on Linkedin a few weeks ago pointing out that if you had £10 stolen from you but someone gave you £86,390 in the same day, you'd feel pretty good about life.  We have 86,400 seconds in a day.  Why do we allow 10 seconds to affect the remaining 86,390?

People say and do thoughtless things, hurtful things at times but the majority of things which hurt us aren't intended to do so and even if they were, it is a decision (conscious or unconscious) to allow that 10 seconds to become a big deal.

So here are some tips to put it all in perspective.

Goats Cheese Salad

I love salads which combine warm and cold ingredients and this super special salad takes delicious, creamy, melting goats cheese and mixes it with a spiced dressing and pepperly leaves.  Delicious.
