We don’t watch much TV but I can’t wait for Dexter to start. How does Dexter have anything to do with this recipe? Well I got some blood red oranges the other day from the store and of course, immediately thought of Dexter. :)
Although we don’t watch live TV, aside from the Bears games, we watch Dexter once it’s available on the Apple TV. Before we left for Miami we started re-watching Dexter from the very beginning: Season 1, episode 1. We’ve seen the whole series so many times and it just works well as background “white” (or blood red) noise.
On a side note my cookbook, Pigskin Paleo‘s going international! After I came home from shipping out a signed copy to Australia (Thanks Kim!!), I was starving and scrounging around for some food. I had recently stocked up on plenty of veggies so I threw this salad together as quick as I could. And my plate was empty before Jeff even got to the kitchen to start on his. :)
