Salad Kick

I've been on another salad kick. I definitely go in spurts. Some weeks, I don't want to look at it, some weeks it's all I eat. This is one of those, eating salad for every meal kind of weeks. Recently, I purchased some Ken's Salad Dressing. I usually never sway from Kraft Ranch or Italian, but neither were on sale and the Ken's was the cheapest. It really adds some needed kick to my salad. The Lite Sweet Vidalia Onion has been a favorite this week. I bought some mixed salad from Sam's and am surprised at how much more flavor it has than me boring old Iceberg Lettuce. Sprinkling a few Craisins for added sweetness, carrots for crunch, Parmesan cheese and Salmon and it is great.

Yesterday was a very eventful day. My FIL came over to assemble a wishing well he had designed. It turned out great, but I will not forget the fact he tried to kill me with a nail gun! I left him do all the heavy lifting on that project, because I spent the day building a new front porch. My wife had told him that I was going to build some new steps, unfortunately for me, the guys I hired to do the job showed up on the same day Grandpa came, so my professional job was outed. I did have to write the check! I should have explained to him that it was either hiring someone to build the steps, or hire someone to watch the boys and I thought would be much cheaper to hire the builders ;)

No plans for the weekend other than working a few WW meetings early tomorrow. It's supposed to be an awesome weather weekend around here.

I go in spurts with the salad too. I just bought some yesterday after not wanting any for weeks. Oh the mixed greens and baby romaine are definitely better tasting than iceberg.

You will never get me around a nail gun. I don't trust myself. :D

Have a great weekend!

I do that with salads too. I'll bet this dressing would be good on a sandwich too...ala Subway's sweet onion chicken.

That dressing sounds really good.
Have a great weekend.

I go in spurts too - just had a chicken spinach salad at Swiss Chalet today and I'm back hooked on spinach! It had mandarins & carrots, green onions AND purple onions (yummy breath now! LOL). And FF raspberry vinagrette. YUM! :) D
