Wife Jan is on the Noom Program and I made an Israeli couscous salad packed full of vegetables and fruit for the Fourth of July. It was so popular with my family that wife Jan asked me to make some for her dance in the park potluck this Sunday. Last time, I listed a vegan option for the salad, but Jan thought some of her friends might be vegan, so I made a new, strictly Vegan salad. Of course in my ultimate need not to make the same dish the same way twice in a row, I made some changes.

Karl’s Greek Spanakorzo Salad (Spinach and Pasta Salad)
I am making some Greek lemon chicken for a weekday meal. I made Spanakorizo (Greek spinach and rice) as a hot side dish last Easter. Today, I want to use the same flavors to make something lighter. This is more a fresh spinach salad with pasta, not orzo with a bit of spinach.

Karl’s Pepper Chicken Pesto with Rotini
Writing this blog really pushes me at times. It makes me feel that I am failing if I do not do my best at every meal. Once upon a time I could make a regular meal, now I am constantly thinking, “What can I do to make this meal different?”

Karl’s Cold Sichuan Noodles, California Style
This dish has become my “go to” dish for potlucks (as in “We’re having a potluck. Karl’s going to bring his Sichuan Noodles, isn’t he?) This is one of the dishes that I included in my niece’s wedding recipe book. Many members of both families provided their best recipes to start off Katie’s married life with good food.
