I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Gorgonzola-Walnut Salad

Yummy, yummy, yummy on the tummy, tummy, tummy.   This is good for your lunch or for dinner.   Make sure you leave some of the candied walnuts for the salad, because you may want to eat them all as a snack.
