Cure for the Boring Brown Bag Lunch – Mason Jar Salads

Kids aren’t the only ones that are getting brown bag lunches now that it is back to school. If you are trying to save money, or just like to keep track of what you eat, bringing your own lunch is the best way to go. But does it always have to be a sandwich, an apple and a drink? Um NO!

I have the cure of the boring brown bag lunch. The new cook book Mason Jar Salads and More: 50 Layered Lunches to Grab and Go by Julia Mirabella, is FULL of delicious and fun new salads that you can bring to work, or on a day trip. And what is more fun than a lunch in a mason jar? These are much more than just lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers with dressing. I have two of my favorite recipes, Pomegranate and Pear Salad and a Spinach, Radish and Quinoa salad, just for my readers to brighten up your daily lunch break.

Don’t be afraid of adding fruit or grains to your salads. I do this all the time with leftovers in my fridge and it adds a lot of texture and great flavor to my lunches. YUM!

Joan Rivers at QVC -fp

Oh dear! Comedienne and long time red carpet critic, Joan Rivers, had a brush with death last night.

During a surgery on her vocal chords, not plastic surgery, Joan stopped breathing and her heart stopped!

According to TMZ -

Joan Rivers was rushed to a hospital in New York City moments ago … after she stopped breathing during a surgery on her throat … TMZ has learned.

We’re told Rivers was undergoing the throat procedure in a clinic (specifically on her vocal chords) … when she stopped breathing during the surgery.

Sources say 81-year-old Rivers was rushed to Mount Sinai hospital in New York.

Come on now Joan, you can’t leave us all yet! Joan is way too up front, and has much more fire to spit at “starlets” on the red carpet to leave us now.

Our prayers are with her and her family. We’re pulling for you Joan.
