OK, so yesterday I thought I was on the ball. Yup, we were busy with my son for an end of year activity (he’s an Air Cadet) and didn’t have a ton of time, but I went shopping and got everything I needed for this weeks salads. I had this. Or, so I thought.
Then just before we ate, I placed the chicken in the oven, same thing I do every Sunday. 450 degrees for 22 minutes. The chicken is perfect every time. If you pay attention. After setting the timer, we ate and then watched a couple tv shows. Then I realized that I was forgetting something. Oh yeah, the CHICKEN!!!
Needless to say, I had no salads prepared for today. That sucks. But on my way home I purchased more chicken and this time I paid attention to the timer.
After last weeks disastrous attempts to create new salads, I thought I would lean towards the ones that I really enjoy eating. But if you had told me, last year, that I would think of salads as comfort food, I would have laughed. Comfort food? Hmmm.
- Mashed potatoes
- Roast beef and gravy
- Creamed anything
- Chips and dip
- Homemade macaroni and cheese
- Veggie lasagna (not that healthy, believe me)
- Curry chicken with rice
Really, I have a long list of comfort foods and you’ll notice … salads aren’t on the list. But something has happened in the last 6 months, I like salad. I enjoy making it, eating it and best of all I love knowing that I’m eating well.
Here is my Week 22 – Mason Jar Salad List.
Here are my two favourite salads.
Now that doesn’t mean I won’t get creative again, just taking a break this week. I’ve already got one in mind … Steak & Mango salad.
