Know what's really good? Croutons. No one give them enough cred. They are crunchy and buttery and soooo good in a salad when they soak up a little bit of dressing but still stay crunchy.
Also, isn't it the best when you are talking to a dog and it gets all smiley at you and tilts his head because he doesn't know what you're saying but he's just happy that food or outside might happen?
