Veg Bad Challenge Week 3


I'm taking the Veg Bad Challenge



We had an okay week as far as veg goes.  Poor Hannah woofed down a tremendous amount of Green Beans Greek Style.  Needless to say, she thought they were tasty and I even enjoyed what little bit was leftover.  But the recipe that I'm sharing for this week is Cobb Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette.  I must say that I don't really know if it's kid friendly, because we had it on the day that Hannah didn't eat a single thing, but Joel and I really enjoyed it.

Cobb Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette

lettuce (bibb or romaine, just about any kind will work)
chicken breast
couple slices bacon
hard boiled eggs
avocado (if in season)
cucumber
cheese (shredded or cubed)

Tear up the lettuce and put on a plate.  Cook bacon in a pan.  After bacon is cooked, cook the chicken breast in the same pan the bacon cooked in.  This adds a ton of flavor. Dice cooked chicken, place on bed of greens along with crumbled bacon, chopped egg, sliced avocado, sliced cucumber and cheese

For Dressing: (adapted from this recipe)

12 oz jar of roasted red peppers in water
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tbsp honey
salt and pepper to taste

mix everything up in a blender.  Pour over salad and chow down

  2. Thanks for dropping by Alicia! I contemplated calling it garbage salad versus Cobb, but I think it's close enough to a real one to bear the name. Hope you enjoy!

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
