One of my favorite things, right?! Well, Yes!! As much as I loved our trip to New Mexico, salads were not a big part of it. Since our fridge wasn’t working properly while we were there, I couldn’t really stock up and have a bunch of veggies at hand. I did make one big salad when we first got there, but after that, no fridge=no salad… :-(
I did get up and going on Thursday. I got my hair cut early (photos to follow if they turn out decent) I got to Aldi for some groceries ( there was truly nothing in the fridge except mustard, ketchup, mayo and water bottles!) I then headed to the produce market and shopped with restraint. Under the circumstances, I could have gone hog-wild, but I decided that I would keep my control. It was difficult, because I was dazzled by all of the veggie goodness! ;-)
When I got back, Ralph was ready for lunch. I decided that since I would be facing weigh in at Weight Watchers today, I’d try to make a good choice. Since Picasso’s is right around the corner from us, and I know they have things that are good choices, I suggested that.
I decided on their mixed cheese salad again. I really can’t go wrong with this, it’s filling and very tasty with the balsamic vinaigrette added. I love that they always give me extra. Hello dinner salad!
I actually couldn’t wait to get to my dinner salad. It had been So Long since I’d had one.
I’m so out of practice, that I forgot to put the tomatoes in the photo! But of course the romaine, celery, green bell pepper, shredded cheese and veggie burger made it!
Happiness is a Big Purple Bowl filled with veggies!! I enjoyed this so much. Ralph joked that if I said “mmmm” one more time he was leaving!! It was very good and was just what I needed. I think there will be many more of these in my future! ;-)
I’m off to weigh in at WW in a little while. I’m hoping I have an acceptable result. I’m pretty sure I’ll have a gain, just hope I don’t have to pay! We’ll see how it goes…Hope it’s worth not having my coffee this morning!
