Every time I try to make something healthy is backfires. For example many times I will add butter, cream, bacon or a combination of the three to an otherwise healthy vegetable. This is what happened the other day when I tried to make a simple side salad. It popped into my head that some sauteed shallots in butter would be quite delicious on top of my healthy greens. Oh well C'est la vie! —singing_baker
