It’s Not Rocket Science — It’s a Salad!

Rocket ShipOnly in The Sims, right? Where else can you pick up a book on rocket science, start building a space ship in your backyard, and travel to space — bringing back an occasional dead alien for inspiration?

I’ve got a few rocket scientists in my game, and of course, I’ve got Edgar Evans, world-famous astronaut.

Today, I’ve slipped into his kitchen and dug up one of his wife’s special space-inspired recipes. It’s long been a family favorite at the Evans home, and with the arrival of spring — and spring greens — you, too, can enjoy this delicious salad.
