Celebrating Black History

It's officially Black History month, a time for all people to become more aware and educated on the history, struggles and accomplishments of black people. While February is the month dedicated to black history, the opportunity to learn more about black people should be taken throughout the entire year!

Until the next time...BE BLESSED!

Today...the first day of Black History month, begins with a great loss. Today the world lost an icon who brought people together from all walks of life through soulful music and dance. Today Don Cornelius was found dead in his home at the age of 75. Cornelius and his hit show, Soul Train, were very instrumental in introducing the world to artist such as James Brown and Aretha Franklin. Many dancers such as Jody Watley, Rosie Perez and more got their start on Soul Train as well. According to the New York Times, Soul Train laid the groundwork for countless dance programs, including current hits like Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” and MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew.”

I remember watching Soul Train with my sister and brothers, trying to imitate all of the dance moves and let's not forget trying to get hip to the latest fashion trends! Man...those were the good ol' days! This weekend my husband and I caught an episode on Bounce TV (check your local listings) while we were getting ready for my son's basketball game. My lil man was very entertained by the dancers and how they danced and the clothing they wore. "Mom, what are you watching...what are they doing...what is that they're wearing?!?!" LOL!!!

Rest in Peace Mr. Cornelius...thank you for giving us the 'hippest trip in America"!

Until the next time...I wish you all LOVE, PEACE & SOOOUULLLL!!

In hopes of eatting healthier and adding a variety of salads to my familys' dinner menu, I decided to make my very own Greek Salad last of our favs! I used the following ingredients but feel free to add or omit what you like.

  • a mix of lettuce (romaine hearts and a bag of mixed greens from Dole)
  • green bell pepper
  • kalamata olives (pitted)
  • red onion
  • grape tomatoes
  • cucumber
  • feta cheese w/ sundried tomatoe and basil
  • Greek dressing
  • gyro (lamb and beef mix) meat from local greek restaurant (Greek to Me)
  • pita
I just rinsed and chopped up all the veggies, drizzled the dressing over the salad and topped it off with feta cheese! Oh...I almost forgot...I wrapped the pita in a paper towel and warmed in the microwave for about 15 seconds!!!! As my girl Rachel Ray would say,,,it was 'YUMMO'!

Sally's Greek salad

If any of you make this salad let me know what you think as well as your variations and versions of this tasty salad!!

Until the next time!
