Trusty Ol’ Salad

I haven’t had a salad in what feels like months. (Actually, it honestly might be months since I have had one! Yikes.)

Today the salad made a strong comeback in the form of an Asian veggie salad I gobbled up during lunch.

Asian Salad

My salad included:

  • Spinach
  • Broccoli slaw
  • Steamed broccoli and carrots (leftover from yesterday’s lunch)
  • Portobello mushrooms
  • Celery
  • MorningStar Farms Asian veggie patty
  • Kraft light Asian toasted sesame dressing

So Many Veggies

After pouring on the yummy dressing, I shook up my salad to evenly disperse all the goodies.

All Shook Up

Salads can really bore me if there aren’t enough toppings to keep me interested. Fortunately this bad boy had a variety of flavors and made me feel quite satisfied.

What is your favorite salad topping?

I love the addition of fruit (such as apple slices or mandarin oranges) and toasted nuts to my salads. Yum!


Ryan is tackling his first spaghetti squash in preparation for our dinner tonight.

Spaghetti Squash

Since he has the week off from work, I left him detailed instructions as to how to bake a spaghetti squash and fork out the yummy strands so the squash will be ready to go when we want to eat this evening.

We have plans to do some Christmas returns/ exchanges tonight and I know we’ll want a quick and easy dinner after the shopping madness. When I asked him to prep the squash while I was at work he said “What!? But I’m the ‘meat guy!'” He seemed a little nervous but  I have faith in his squash abilities! You go guy! 😉
