I think it’s safe to say that throughout my entire week in Vegas last week, I probably consumed less than 4 servings of vegetables. As much as I enjoyed all of the delicious food that I ate, I was definitely missing all those extra nutrients!
Enter: A Big ‘Ol Grilled Chicken Salad
I took care of making the salads while Jay grilled up some barbeque marinated chicken that we had previously prepped and put in the freezer. It was one hefty piece, so we split it easily between the two of…I let hubby have a little extra after I saw the disappointment in his face about their only being one piece.
Do you not just LOVE all the colors in this bowl?!? My bowl included:
- Spring Mix Base
- Grape Tomatoes
- Red Onion
- Green Pepper
- Corn (off the cob) ;)
- Fat-Free Feta Cheese
I topped my salad with a drizzle of Ken’s Light Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing, which is currently my absolute favorite. Yum! Jay and I also finished off the rest of the cornbread from last night, which I forgot to photograph. It looked a little somethin’ like this…
I didn’t end up getting a chance to do any baking today, but maybe tomorrow. We’ll see how hot it gets. Boy, I’ll tell ya – as much as I love summer, this 90 degrees stuff is getting a little old. I’m ready to break out my fall decorations, light some spicy cinnamon & pumpkin candles, and start sippin’ on some delicious pumpkin flavored beverages. Both Starbucks AND Dunkin’ Donuts are rumored to have my favorite Pumpkin Spice beverages available…
I said I would NOT allow myself to delve into the world of pumpkin yumminess until September 1st…
Thank god it’s only 2 days away!! :mrgreen:
