Today has been another glorious summer day! I did some gardening (got a new basil plant), ran some errands, and did some work. Tomorrow I’m going back into the office, but since it’s been an entire week since I’ve been there, I’m feeling quite refreshed and ready to kick some To-Do List booty!
Thankfully my allergies have subsided a great deal so I’ve been able to enjoy long walks with Rocky and jogging outdoors. Tomorrow I’ve got a long bike-ride planned, so that will be nice, too.
For dinner tonight I knew I wanted something light and fresh, yet hearty. Not just any regular salad was going to cut it. And you know how sometimes you think about something and then can’t get it out of your head? Yeah, I’ve had this beast of a salad planned for a good while now.
There were so many delicious toppings on this bad boy.
Corn that had been cooked the other day on the grill & cut fresh from the cob
Shredded chicken that had been mixed with BBQ sauce
Huge chunks of avocado that seemed never-ending
And so much more!
In the end this baby was packed with: chicken, avocado, cheese, turkey bacon crumbles, corn, black beans, diced onions, and jalapeno slices. All on a bed of romaine and baby spinach.
No need for any dressing with the moist chicken. Once all of the ingredients were combined there were plenty of juices flowing.
Despite how hot it already is during the day, the evenings have been quite nice – low/mid 70’s with gentle breezes. Beautiful.
I’m spending the evening watching The King’s Speech. Yes, I am just now getting around to watching it. Yes, I know how amazing it is supposed to be. I have just been very busy lately. I’m catching up now.
Maybe if the hubbs is lucky there will be brownies in our future. We’ll see.
