Changing it Up

Tonight was a prime example of how even the best laid meal plans don't always work out. FH had a "working lunch" with a co-worker who is moving on to another position. By working lunch I mean they had some beers and potentially there was food involved. Anyway, he called around 4pm to let me know not to count on him for dinner....so I definitely wasn't going to make the big chicken and potato dinner I had planned. We'll do that tomorrow since tomorrow's plan was for turkey burgers that are still in the freezer anyway.

Instead, I thawed out the last remaining Baked Chicken and Bean Rollup and served it with a big salad.

In the salad was a big handful of mixed lettuces, a smaller handful of baby spinach, diced tomatoes, a few bits of red onion, matchstick carrots, and a tiny bit of minced jalepeno. I mixed it all up with my recent "dressing" of choice...salsa & light sour cream. At the last minute I topped it with a few of those tortilla crisps I bought a while back.

Earlier in the day I stopped at Bulk Barn for a few baking items and some more oatmeal...and since no trip to BB is complete without a treat, today was no different. I got myself a little bag of bridge mix and had that for my afternoon snack.

I saved my strawberries and canteloupe for dessert, and skipped the tea & mini cookies. Topped my fruit with a scoop of vanilla yogurt and a drizzle of chocolate PB2 (I'm trying to find more ways to use this as so far I haven't been overly impressed).

Must head for bed. Morning comes much too fast!

Every single time I visit the bulk section at the grocery store, I buy myself a teeny bag of dark chocolate covered almonds. They are my absolute favorite!

I'm loving your food porn of late....you salad looks delish!!
