Greetings!

I'm just sitting here eating salad and catching up on the old Facebook.

My friends keep posting the episode of Carpool Karaoke with Paul McCartney and I finally got a chance to watch it.  (below)

I am so glad I did.  This video is a delight from start to finish.  James Corden and Paul McCartney drive around Liverpool and visit the house where Paul lived as a young man and where he composed the early Beatles songs.  They stop and do a surprise performance at a local club that he used to play at.  There are laughs and there are tears.  It's quite a trip.

But let's turn to Caprese Salad Skewers for just a minute.

Caprese Salad is a simple Italian salad made up of tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, fresh basil and a balsamic vinegar reduction.  This recipe takes the classic salad and makes it hand held.  I based these skewers on a great recipe that I found on Iowa Girl Cooks.  It's a delicious low carb salad with only 5g net carbs per serving.

But enough food talk, let's get back to my precious Carpool Karaoke. 

If you do watch it, make sure to have some Kleenex handy.  Like I said, there are laughs and there are tears.  It's a wild ride.

Beep beep, beep beep, yea.
