So happy to be a bridesmaid in this girl's wedding. June 14, 2014 is going to be the party of the year... and the festivities leading up to it (starting with an enegagement party in a couple weeks) are going to be amazing.
I've been away from this blog for far too long. Apologies. I'd like to say there is no excuse, or that the excuses are plentiful. But they're not. I've been busy with work. And beyond that, I've probably been watching too much TV, trying harder to clean my house, sleeping in and drinking too many beers/glasses of wine with friends. That's the truth.
I've officially succumbed to the salad in a jar craze that's been sweeping the nation Pinterest. It's just a quick and easy way to throw a salad together and know that your dressing won't get your lettuce soggy after sitting all day. I usually make mine the night before, and as you can see, don't discriminate when it comes to jars. Some people use real mason jars or canning jars - but I've used pickle jars (for big salads), salsa jars (for smaller salads) and even a JIF peanut butter plastic jar.
My favorite salad 'recipe' is generally something like...
Dressing: Balsamic/honey/lemon or poppyseed dressing
Fruit/Veggies: Some combination of strawberries and blueberries, apples, celery or red cabbage
Meat: Turkey or ham
Greens: Spinach / spring greens mix
Topped off with Croutons or Crackers
And to be honest - it fills me up! Even when I brought the 'small' salad in the salsa jar. Try it! A quick, easy meal to prepare and probably more healthy than that microwave Lean Cuisine.
