I was so excited for today’s lunch. It’s FULL of all delicious, (and one cruciferous) veggies, which is a good thing since my veggie intake was a little low this weekend. 😉
I mixed some romaine & spinach, and topped it off with some cukes, carrots, grape tomatoes, green peppers, broccoli, and strawberries. I LOVE putting fruit in my salads, especially strawberries. It adds a fabulous little dose of “sweet” For a dressing, I mixed together a little balsamic vinegar, EVOO, & some parmesan seasoning blend, which was DEEElish. I didn’t measure anything out, but I’d say the balsamic to EVOO ratio was about 5:1?
I also have the rest of my homemade croutons to add. Looks like I’ll have to be makin’ another batch of these babies! They were AWESOME.
I had thrown together a mini PB sandwich on 1/2 an Arnold Sandwich thin for a little extra protein, but I left it at home! GRR!!! 😳 Hopefully the fiber from all my veggies will help stick with me for a while.
I also packed up some leftover fruit salad from Saturday’s party, which I’m sure I’ll have a little later this afternoon.
LOVE all the COLORS! 😀
Tonight, Jay and I are headed out for a special celebration dinner! (I’ll fill you guys in on the details later) 😉 Unfortunately, our original restaurant fell through, so now we’re still trying to decide where to go…UGHH! There’s too many choices…
Do you have a favorite go-to restaurant or type of cuisine when eating out for special occasions? (*For the locals – anywhere you’d recommend??*) 😀
Don’t forget about my “Ask Me Anything” from this morning! 😀
