Wednesdays Unplugged – Wedge Salad with French and Blue Cheese Dressings



"I have learned that to be with those I like is enough." ~ Walt Whitman



NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!

Today was our daughter's birthday so she got to pick the meal… her usual Fettucine Alfredo. She asked for Black Tuxedo Cheesecake for dessert… didn't even try to make it, that's what the Cheesecake Factory is for!


Also on our daughter's request list for her birthday dinner was wedge salad, high on the popular request list. I figured it was time to share it.
