Honey Poppyseed Salad

Ive been on a salad kick lately. Mainly for lunch, but this one snuck in for dinner.

Tessemae's dressings are a HUGE favorite around here. I actually scored the avocado ranch today, on sale at Kroger!

This salad came together fast… here are the components:

  • Roasted chicken thigh
  • Raw baby carrots, sliced
  • Raw radishes, sliced
  • Raw cucumbers, sliced
  • Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • Honey Poppyseed dressing, Tessemae's
  • Optional… a couple of crackers broken on top (real life, I just had 2 in the bag and hated to leave them haha)

Y'all have any go-to salad combinations? Or dressings? Please share!

What I ate Wednesday: Sept. 6th

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend!

We had a good weekend. I enjoyed the extra day off and was able to get some "settling in" (AKA, STILL unpacking) checked off the list.

Short work weeks usually throw off my menu planning, BUT in a good way! I usually take them as a nice chance to relax a little and cook on the fly! Grace week as I like to call it!

Here is a peak at what I ate today.

Breakfast–> I LOVE Bobo's oatmeal bites (I get the lemon one at Publix, which has been on sale!). If I get up early, I usually have one with some coffee. Then when Tripp wakes up, we usually split a plate of eggs and fruit. And we had a Bfree bun in the fridge, so I toasted it and put some butter on it. Kind of like a bagel!

Lunch–> Tripp and I played almost all morning outside. It was beautiful!! We came in and I threw us together a little variety of a few of my picks and a few of his picks. Chicken with Primal Mayo, celery, carrots with hummus, apple, cheese, olives, asparagus for Tripp, and avocado.

Dinner–> We are having zoodles with roasted potatoes and chicken meatballs. Since this will be up BEFORE then, here was last night's dinner plate 😉

And here is a peak at some of what I have prepped for the week. Publix pre-cut veggies are amazing shortcuts. I got Brussel sprouts and rices cauliflower to help me out a little.

I also threw a whole chicken in the InstantPot… and you know it, made back to back broth batches to round out the process.

Happy Wednesday, y'all!
