Winter Pear and Walnut Salad Recipe

This week has been insane.  As many of you know, I care for my ninety-two year old mother-in-love.  She has Alzheimer's and dementia which means that she needs round-the-clock care.  Well, last Friday she fell and broke her hip.  It was devastating and we've basically been at the hospital non-stop ever since.  That means we've had A LOT of hospital food.  I finally had some time at home yesterday to get my house put together, and I was craving some salad. I went to the fridge to see what I could throw together and that is where this Winter Pear and Walnut Salad recipe was born.

Okay, I realize salads aren't necessarily recipes, but if you're anything like me, sometimes it's a struggle coming up with flavor combinations to keep them new and exciting.  That's why I love this Winter Pear and Walnut Salad recipe.  These simple pantry staples pack a whole lot of flavor which make this the perfect lunch or even a light supper.  I can't wait to share it with you so...

Let's Get Started!


The Saturday Sip: My Winter Reading List and a Book Club

Seasonal Living is something I have talked a lot about on this blog as well as my social media platforms.  What is seasonal living you ask?  To me it means living the fullest life possible in every season.  This could be celebrating both large and obscure holidays, making the newest season of your favorite television show and event, doing seasonal activities such as visiting pumpkin farms or sleigh riding.  You get the picture.

Right now we are in the thick of winter.  One of the things I love doing in winter is reading.  There is just something magical about cozying up with a fuzzy blanket, a pup or two, and a good book that makes my heart happy in the winter time.  I usually set seasonal reading goals for myself, and make small bucket lists.  However, this year I thought it would be fun to make this a group effort.  I have put together a Winter Reading List, and created The Kitchen Wife Seasonal Reading Book Club Group on Facebook.  This way we can read together, discuss what we did and didn't like about each read, and grow more as a community.  I'm really excited about this and I hope you are too.

The winter reading list is as follows:

Since we are getting a late start to this one I kept the list short, but I'm really looking forward to diving into these books and talking about them with you.  One thing I want to stress is that this is NOT meant to be agonizing.  I don't mind if you read the actual book, kindle version, or listen to it on audible.  I say that because I will be doing all of the above.  Let's just keep this as fun and light hearted as possible!  

So let's get started with our winter reading!

And as always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Living, 
~The Kitchen Wife~
