A Rosey Start to Lunch

My lunch hour started off on the most beautiful note.

My wonderful boyfriend sent me the most gorgeous bouquet of two dozen red roses in a wonderful vase. I am seriously obsessed with the vase. When I called Ryan to gush about my flowers, I couldn’t stop talking about the vase and he was like “Dang! Maybe next time I’ll just buy you the vase!” I must say the flowers are quite beautiful, too. πŸ˜‰

The flowers were sent to kick off a secret date Ryan has planned for us tomorrow. Ryan and I take turns planning a special date for each other every other month and October is his month. I can’t wait to see what he has in store!

Now for my regular lunchtime update!

I began by gathering the ingredients for a simple chicken salad using an apple, fall’s favorite fruit.

Canned white meat chicken, a crisp Granny Smith apple and light Miracle Whip are the only three ingredients I use to make this yummy salad.

First I drained the chicken and let Sadie lick the can.

"I Love Chicken!"

"I Love Chicken!"

I then chopped the tart Granny Smith apple into large chunks and squirted about a tablespoon of Miracle whip in with the chicken.

After stirring the three ingredients, my chicken salad was ready to go!

I spread the chicken on a Tam-x-ico’s low carb wheat tortilla with broccoli slaw and shredded lettuce. (These tortillas are by far the best tortillas I’ve ever had.)

  1. Such pretty flowers…oooh a secret date? I would read SO much more into this if you guys didn’t have it once a month. πŸ™‚

  2. Flowers, how sweet!

    I will take any date that my husband plans, but I love when he makes reservations somewhere and takes the time to plan everything out.

  3. Aww Ryan sounds like a total sweetheart!!! You’re a lucky girl!! And your lunch looks delish!!

  4. YUM looks great, I love making chicken or tuna salad with different, new ingredients! those wraps are SOOO good, I agree

    hmmm the perfect date…would be 1) romantic, quiet restaurant with a bottle of wine then walking all over the city talking for hours OR 2) cookign a homemade romantic dinner, fire place lit, wine, candles..the works!

  5. apples and meat together? can that really taste good? also, is it just me, or does your hand look like some sort of…alien claw…in the last picture?
