A quick post to say hello!
Tonight is one of those nights that I just didn’t feel like cooking dinner after a fabulous, but very busy, weekend.  Friday night was pizza and a movie night, Saturday I had some much needed girlfriend time; pedicures, dinner, cocktails and dancing.  We had such a great time! And today was errands and catching up on housework. The plan was to make something with some ground beef but instead I threw together some rotisserie chicken, creamy but light farmer cheese, crunchy broccoli and juicy tomato on a bed of fresh spinach. The result was so satisfying that I just had to snap a photo and share.
How was your weekend?

  1. Um Friday & Saturday sound fantastic to me. Love Pizza Friday and a great girls' night!!! For a not wanting to cook meal, that one is pretty healthy and fantastic if you ask me!

  2. Life has been absolutely crazy lately, even when I have time to cook, I have no energy and if I have energy, then I am doing something else. I have to try this salad this week. I am glad you posted this Dawn, thank you. :)

  3. How I wish this had been the type of meal I'd had last night. After a fantastic day, I just wasn't feeling like cooking. Our plan B wound up being Panera. This salad would've been so much of a wiser choice.

  4. wow…love d vibrant healthy colors dear..:)

  5. Why thank you! Megi….For me too! I’m feeling guilty because I can barely cook anything, never mind blog about it. I was hoping this would at least inspire some busy moms to use what they have fresh in the fridge rather than getting to go. I think this only took 5 minutes to throw together!

  6. It has certainly inspired me Dawn, it looks so good! When it's hot and humid, all I want is a good salad.

  7. Nice looking salad! On nights I don't feel like cooking I often times go for eggs! Easy,filling and something I don't eat a lot of!
