Now onto another summer favorite. Chopped Salads and Beer.

Chop Salad! That seems to be my current addiction. I’ve made one almost every day since the Michigan Bloggers Meet-Up.

I used recipes from here and here. I just chopped away and added as much or little of each of the ingredients below. No measuring.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Bag Mixed Lettuce
  • Shredded Carrots
  • Shredded Red Cabbage
  • Chopped Chives
  • Goat Cheese Crumbles -or- Blue Cheese Crumbles
  • Wonton Strips
  • Bolthouse chunky Blue Cheese Yogurt Dressing
  • Dried Cranberries and Honey Roasted Pecans
  • Chopped Chicken Breast

directions:

Chop lettuce in 1/2-inch squares. Mix lettuce with the chopped carrots, and cabbage. Toss in the pecans and  dried cranberries with the dressing. Add the tortilla strips, goat cheese or blue cheese crumbles, and chives. Serve in a chilled bowl.  Top with sliced grilled chicken breast.

Also had a Applebee’s Chop Salad and a Beer. Loved this salad. It had tortilla strips, black beans, chopped chicken and the dressing was zippy and creamy.

Dinner time is my favorite time of the day, it’s when I get to catch up with my husband and see how his day was. I love that we hang out, eat dinner and talk about our day and our schedule for the week. It’s our quality time together after being away all day at work. So when it comes to dinner I always try to make foods that we both enjoy. So tonight I made Jeff’s favorite vegetable, brussels sprouts and my favorite, sweet potato wedges. I love that I can roast them at the same time. Plus who says you can not have two vegetables. Certainly not me.

Wedges.

Seasoned with a Course Sea Salt.

Tossed with Olive Oil.

Garlic Gold for the brussels.

Roasted at 400 degrees for 35 minutes.

Also made a batch of Barley and Quinoa for tonight and enough for some leftovers to eat later.

Love the combination of the grain with the seed.

We grilled up some chicken breasts. Nice simple dinner = quality time together.

After dinner I had some brussels left over so I chopped them up and threw them on the Quinoa mix for tomorrows side dish.

Question of the Day: What’s your favorite Grain? I am loving Barley right now.

This has been my ride to work for the last week. My husband’s car is in the shop so he has been using mine. So my recreational vehicle has become my main vehicle. I will be the first to admit it, I am a fair weather rider. Well this past week I have ridden in a light sprinkle and 45 degree weather. It was not that bad, but the second I get my car back I am going to rejoice. It’s hard packing all I need for the day in those little side bags. Okay pity part is over.

Oats in a jar or OIAJ, for breakfast.

Added all my favorites, chia seeds, soy milk, nut butter and cinnamon.

Came home to this amazing delight. Popchips sent me a case of there Chili Lime Popchips. I love them, they are such a great company. They were a Blend Retreat sponsor and rewarded any of  the attendees with a 30 day supply for blogging about our experience with popchips. Well that was easy for me, I loved them, I cannot get enough of them.

The chili lime flavor is both spicy hot and sweet, so much flavor, I think  popchips are going to be a staple snack in my house from now on.

Such a satisfying healthy snack. Did I mention that they are all natural flavors and ingredients.

Then I got to dinner. Really excited to try a new recipe for kale.

My little kid, Killian loves him some kale. He loves any green leafy vegetable, well he love all veggies.

Side dish of couscous.

So this recipe for sautéed Kale is easy, it softens it and takes the bitter bite right out.

Cook the onions and garlic with some olive oil, about 5 minutes. Then add the kale and a 1/2 cup of vegetable broth and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes stirring as needed.

Grilled some chicken breasts.

Put it all together and sprinkled with feta cheese, and dig in.

Love eating on the deck, makes the work week fade away.

Here a Greatest Hits Look Back on a series of Kale posts I have done. Sell you on Kale. Accidents Happen.  With a side of Kale.  Pancakes or Eggs. Anticipation. Keeping up with Kale. Also check out a post that my friend Tamara did over at Wild Blue Wonder for Tofu Kale Triangles.

Wishing you a happy weekend!

Question of the Day: How have you used Kale? Or does seeing recipes for Kale make you want to try it?
