Lunch was quite over the top today! After spending the morning walking, running, cleaning the kitchen floor, and weeding the garden, I got the bright idea to grill my lunch. I never grill. I’m kind of scared of it. The husband is usually the grill master. But here by myself with a craving for grilled vegetables, I took a stab.
Horay for the self-timer! With my tongs and giant spatula:
My art. Zucchini, squash, peppers, broccoli and carrots (yes, they were GREAT grilled!) and a Trader Joe’s frozen salmon patty.
After-shot. I didn’t eat all of these veggies – about 1/3 to 1/2 are for tonight’s dinner.
Grilled carrots = amazing!
So with all of this bounty I made a HUGE salad. The base is romaine and spinach topped with chopped veggies, the salmon patty and about 1/2 an oz of soft goat’s cheese. For a dressing I drizzled on some good-quality balsamic vinegar and a splash of EVOO. Oh, and can’t forget the capers!
Goat cheese makes any salad perfect –
I needed some whole grains to round out lunch and thought about Kashi crackers, but I was really craving PB&J so I had a slice of bread with a little of both smothered on.
The spread out on the patio –
The salad was very filling, and the PB&J added a nice sweet satisfying ending. I am perfectly full!
I better floss and hit the road or I’ll be late for the dentist!
Hasta luego amigos!
