|S'murtle - Jilly's Cupcake Bar, St. Louis|
My co-worker has a gorgeous calendar hanging above her desk. I pass by several times a day just to admire the calendar girls…cupcakes…beautifully decorated, fabulously photographed, yummy cupcakes. Damn them, they are totally inappropriate for the office (like that tart they hired for reception). So I decided to start a calendar of my own. One much more office appropriate - not so decadent and distracting. I have my quarterly calender girls picked out already:
|Spring Salad - pickycook.com|
This is the young temptress, Miss Spring, dainty and sweet - sporting delicate baby greens and juicy ripe red strawberries. She’s lightly dressed, yes, but oh so innocent.
|Summer Salad - annpurnacaterers.com|
Miss Summer follows. Stunning, round, voluptuous melon balls, dark sweet grapes, slices of succulent peaches and a sprinkling of late season strawberries. She is sporting a sprig of mint and looks wonderfully cool sitting in her cantaloupe cup.
|Autumn Salad - AskGeorgie.com|
Following the fabulously hot Miss Summer, I’ve chosen a bold and sophisticated Miss Autumn. Simple and elegant, shredded purple cabbage decorated with the season’s crispy red apples, she’s dressed in a tangy mustard vinaigrette. It’s just the right amount of coverage for her tantalizing sweet crunchiness.
|Winter Salad - wisefitnesstips.com|
Finally, the well-seasoned Miss Winter. Preserved beets and sun dried tomatoes snuggle with lettuce, green onion, cucumber and lovely farmer’s cheese. She is sporting a sprinkling of dried herbs from the garden and a smidge of olive oil and red wine vinegar.
See, it IS possible to be tantalizing without being sinful. I may just have something here…
