Cobb Salad

As you know Saturdays are devoted to yard work around here, especially in the spring. I always prepare lunch before I go outside. Lunch is wrapped carefully and stored in the fridge. The least dirty of us, goes in to the kitchen and brings us all lunch. 

Sitting outside in my dirty overalls, under the pergola, we eat a beautifully prepared lunch and sit to enjoy the fruits of our labors. 

One of my favorite lunches for a Saturday is a Cobb Salad. I like it because it is an arranged salad that can hold up for several hours. Give this a try, you will be sold. 

Besides, it is so much better than sending someone out for fast food…  while the rest of work ! I am joining Michael at Designs by Gollum's Foodie Friday.... she has some fabulous bloggers and her blog is pretty fabulous too.

2 large hard boiled eggs
