Mar. 21 - Cobb Salad

Oh, my...there are days when all you want to do is sit down and enjoy your dinner (whether with kids, your husband, all of the above or none of the above)...and there are days when you just want to put everyone to bed and eat all by yourself. After tantrum after tantrum, today was a day when I put everyone to bed and ate alone at the kitchen table at 7:30 p.m. I was starving, but the blissfully quiet meal was worth it!

When we made the honey chicken skewers last week, I had the boy grill up two other chicken breasts to go along with them. I figured we could either make chicken salad, reheat them with some veggies and rice, or make a salad out of them. Since we didn't feel like cooking tonight, we decided to make some salads with the romaine (before it went bad) and tossed the chicken in with it.

The boy and Linds had some basic grilled chicken salads - chicken, romaine, carrots, cheese, croutons, bacon bits and dressing. I opted for a Cobb salad - chicken, avocado, romaine, carrots, bleu cheese, croutons, bacon bits (didn't have any defrosted regular bacon), hard boiled egg, and a fat-free Maple Grove Farms of Vermont balsamic vinaigrette (only 5 calories per serving!). The salads were filling and delicious. I'm excited to make a lot more of them this summer!

Hey I'm a MOMS Club President & Founder too! This is my last year on the Board & it's been wonderful & worthwhile :) Yes, I can relate to just wanting to have a quiet meal sometimes too. Mmm, I can't wait for warmer weather to grill some chicken. Thanks for the inspiration :)
