Apple and Celery Salad

Are you tired of regular lettuce salads?  This is an easy salad made with celery, green apple and pecans.  As you can see by the picture there are no pecans because my girls don’t love them, so just keep them on the side if you have the same problem in your home!

Typhoon Haiyan is fading from the news reports on the US news I watch each night but CNN International still has very in-depth coverage.  The devastation is unthinkable and so many Hong Konger’s are scrambling to buy much needed basic supplies to send to the Philippines.  Today I helped pack 200 kilos of medicine, spam, rice, granola bars, and clothing for a team from our high school and two doctors to go and distribute over the weekend.  The logistics are tough, flying from here to Cebu, then packing a truck load of food and moving that along with what they are bringing from Hong Kong on tiny boats for a one hour journey to Malapascua Island.  If you haven’t prayed for the Philippines, please do so right now and remember to be thankful for all you have today because if your reading this God woke you up today and that is such a blessing!
