Simple Lunch

I had a lot of fun catching up with one of my friends back home today over the phone.  I was telling her about all my plans to cook and bake new dishes, and we made plans to cook together when I go home for a visit.  She has a wonderful kitchen with lots of fun tools and gadgets-except she doesn’t use half of them, because she doesn’t really cook.  I suspect she doesn’t know what half of her gadgets do.  I keep telling her one day I’ll just go shop in her kitchen and take what I need-she told me she wouldn’t even notice if stuff went missing.  Haha.  So, this post is for her, because she wanted something easy to make and requested that I send her something.

This is a simple bagel-wich and salad that I had for lunch.  My friend made it for me when I went to Montreal for a wedding; he’s an excellent host and  cook.


  • romaine lettuce
  • assorted berries
  • salad dressing of your choice

Mix all ingredients and you’ve got a tasty and healthy salad!



  • bagel, toasted
  • sliced tomato
  • lettuce
  • butter or mayo
  • smoked salmon

Assemble all ingredients as you would a sandwich!  Super easy!


It was a very tasty meal!
