May 2013

Last week I participated in an extreme poverty initiative called Live Below the Line. It ran from April 29th to May 3rd, and the challenge was to live on $1.75 per day of food or $8.75 groceries for the week. My team was called Bloggers below the Line and together we raised $1,568, and I personally raised $320. Thanks to everyone who sponsored me I really appreciate it.

Nothing says summer like a fresh crisp salad with fruit and toasted almonds. hmmmm! We're on a Kale salad kick over at our house. My colleague at work - Julie - convinced me to give kale another try, and she was right it really is a super tasty salad. I made this last week to go with some lentil sliders, and it was the perfect accompaniment in place of fries. Enjoy!
