Monday in the kitchen

Sunday evening dinner is problematic. By the time I get home from church and visiting dad, I don’t really want to cook. I used to put some meat in the crock pot on Sunday morning but I am trying to revamp my eating plan, loading up my plate with veggies and letting meat be a sometimes side dish. So I have been collecting recipes and ideas that can come together quickly. When I saw this recipe, I knew i wanted to try it out. I actually had everything in the pantry too. The salad came together easily (the dressing was not hard to make) and I made an extra serving to take for lunch tomorrow. I also added cucumbers, broccoli, and tomatoes. I imagine this salad will find a regular spot on my meal planning calendar.

  1. I’m not a big fan of kale, but this looks so good I might try it! Maybe I just need to massage my kale? I’ve never heard of that, but it’s worth a try!

  2. That sounds really delicious! I’m not sure I can convince my husband to eat that much kale, but he’s a big fan of Caesar salad, so perhaps we can do it with a mix of leafy greens.

  3. That does look great but I don’t expect it would be very popular at my house. Good for you for finding a way to get more vegetables into your life.

  4. I’m always looking for tasty ways to bring more vegetables into my life! (Although I eat a little meat once in a while, I’m mostly vegetarian + fish.) During the winter, I lose interest in salads. But now that the days are longer and it’s warming up, I say Bring On The Salads!

    1. I have been eating a mostly vegan diet for about 4 weeks with 2 to go so finding The Minimalist Baker site has been perfect. I’m with you on the salads. In winter I like to eat a lot of soup too.

  5. Wow, once again I am so behind on blogging. This happens every year about now, and this year is particularly crazy. One reason is that our choir director is leaving after 30 years, so we’re having lots of “last time” stuff, including a grand finale on June 9th when we sing Jubilate Deo, a piece that includes 7 languages! Yesterday we had a Choir Festival with all the kids choirs Here’s what we sang: I imagine your crazy busy, too, but I hope we can connect again in the not too distant future! Enjoy these last few weeks of the school year..

  6. yummm! Vegetables are always my favorite part of dinner … and I think I might even get Marc to say that about this salad 🙂
