Strawberry Poppyseed Salad

O-M-G!! This is the most delicious salad. After 3 hours at the park and zipping by the library to return books, we went to Panera Bread for lunch. I had heard about this salad during a commercial on the radio (and was drooling afterwards) so was delighted to see it available. I got the pick two and had the half portion of the strawberry poppyseed salad and half of a chicken salad sandwich. Ohhh so yummy. The star of the meal was definitely the salad. Just picture it, taste it...crisp romaine lettuce, strawberries, blueberries, mandarin orange sections, pineapple chunks all drizzled in a wonderfully sweet & tart fat-free poppyseed dressing. After tasting it, Morgan told me that I just *had* to figure out how to make that dressing. LOL! Seriously, it was that good. Alex was even eating the pieces of fruit from the salad WITH dressing on them.

Ok, I was just about to sign off when Kali the Daring decided to scare the crap out of us. She likes to get on top of the cabinets in the kitchen (up on the plant shelf near the ceiling) which is normally no big deal. Just now she stepped off the cabinet onto the curtain rod over the french doors...all 4 feet!! It is a cylindrical rod! A wooden dowel...and it is made to roll in the holders. Egads!! Corey jumped up and retrieved her from her "high wire act". Man, if it isn't the kids it is the pets.
