Thank you, Brianna!

Mammer's Bday Part 1 025Meet our new favorite salad. You may see it at EVERY meal. Why?  Because MY SON ATE IT! Spinach. Lettuce. HE ATE IT! And, not just one bite. A LOT! I was BEYOND SHOCKED! And, beyond happy! Thank you Brianna whoever you are…for making a dressing that makes my son eat salad! And, thank you Carrie for this priceless recipe.
