On the Road in May

Y’all. We are HALF-WAY THROUGH 2016. Can you even believe that?! I’m already seeing people count-down until Christmas. Please. I just cannot. Stop the madness.

In the spirit of ignoring how quickly we are moving through the year, how about a look at what you all named the top 5 posts here on the blog in the month of May? Sounds like a plan!

Overnight Salad: A Family Favorite!

My husband’s family is BIG on getting together! Everyone gathers often at the family home, in the “party room”, as they call it (which is an old workshop transformed into a huge eating room with an attached screen porch and a full kitchen!) There are normally about 50 of us out there for any given event, and one of the favorite dishes of all is always the Overnight Salad.

I first had the Overnight Salad a few years ago when I attended the first dinner with my husband (before we were even married) and I LOVED it! Number one, it was gluten-free, which is how I must eat, and number two, it was GOOD!

Over the next couple of years, I helped prepare the Overnight Salad on several occasions, and my hubby’s aunt finally gave me the recipe. She’s not exactly sure where it came from, but one thing’s for sure – she can make it in her sleep now, and I’m well on my way, too!

So, without further ado, may I present…

Conveniently Healthy – With Steel and Grace!

If you’re a regular reader here on the Road to Domestication, then you know that, from time to time, I enjoy sharing stories about amazing people who have created an amazing product, or business – people who have taken an idea and really just RUN with it and started something incredible! I share these stories to inspire YOU to pick up the ideas that have been left behind in your life and run after them!

Today, we meet Mary.


I’ve known Mary for about 13 years now, and although she’s one of the smartest women I’ve ever met, I’ve never seen her do anything like this before! It’s pretty amazing! Have you heard of “salad in a jar”? Maybe you’ve seen it on Pinterest, something like this?


Well, Mary has taken “salad in a jar” to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL!

Mary has created four kinds of salads (complete with custom dressings) and two kinds of snack cookies (everything with all-natural ingredients). She “jars” the salads, and customers order them via text, Facebook or her website. Then she delivers them!

Can you imagine? Being able to reach in your fridge and grab a fresh salad in a jar to take to work with you for lunch? Or even come home after a long day and grab a salad for each member of your family, totally prepared, right out of the fridge, for dinner?
