Ramen Noodle Salad

This weekend was the parties for ODESSA!!!  On Saturday was both the shower and the bach party (well, the bach party was for both her and her fiance Eric) and it was soooo much fun.  Teesha and I hosted the shower in my apartment and then headed up to the roof afterward for the combined bach party.  It was fun to get all the friends together and hear all the wonderful stories of both Odessa and Eric.  They are two absolutely amazing people and I couldn't ask for better friends.  It's so uplifting to hear how they have touched so many lives and how everyone knows they will continue to do that for so many people.  They are both soooooo gifted!!!

Unfortunately I don't have any pictures yet, however when I get them I'll forward them to you.

Since this is a food blog too, I thought you may want to know about the salad that I made for the shower.  It was yummy!! On the side we served cranberry/walnut bread and chicken.  Mmmmm....


1 head lettuce (pieces)
6 to 8 green onions (chopped)
1 (6 oz.) can Mandarin oranges
1 c. chopped celery
1 c. chopped mushrooms
1/2 c. slivered almonds
1 (3 oz.) pkg. chicken flavored Ramen noodles, uncooked & crumbled

1/4 c. salad oil
1/4 c red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. celery seed
1 tsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp. sugar

Seasoning mix from noodles

Mix together lettuce and green onions. Add all other ingredients except noodles and almonds and set aside in an airtight container until serving. Blend together dressing. Just before serving, add dressing, almonds and noodles to lettuce mixture.
