Taco (Salad) Thursday

I love salad but almost never eat it at home for 2 reasons:

1. I can’t find good looking lettuce

2. I’m too darn lazy to wash it and cut it up (and I don’t like most of those bagged ones that give you maybe half a bowl of salad.)

But luckily I thought ahead the other day and chopped & washed the whole head of lettuce for my taco salad!!

I already had the seasoned corn & black beans mixed in with the lettuce, so I just added some avocado, jalapenos, tortilla chips, salsa, and some Caesar dressing just for kicks.

I wanted some Morningstar Farms Chik’n Nuggets on the side, and was so sad to see only 2 lonely nuggets in the bottom of the box. 😦

This salad really has me craving some real tacos…

I wasn’t quite filled up by that, so followed the salad up with a Quaker True Delights toasted coconut banana macadamia bar and some Jello Rice Pudding. This True Delights flavor is starting to grow on me….I sure wish they’d come up with a shorter name instead of listing all the ingredients. The rice pudding was…ok. Good for convenience, but kind of had a watery aftertaste.


(Hello somebody needs to wash her placemats….)

Well I’m glad I decided to take it easy and just go for a walk instead of run yesterday- not to be a baby, but my I woke up with my feet hurting 10x more than after running Sunday. Good thing I didn’t run! I think I’m going to stick with non impact activities the rest of the week, then start up a new training plan on Monday.

    I am a salad fanatic. I eat a salad almost every day for lunch. I made a taco salad over the weekend. Hadn’t had one in ages. YUM

    Grrr…I bought a HUGE box of organic lettuce on Sunday, and had to throw it away on Tuesday because it had already gone bad. Makes me SO mad!

    I love morningstar nuggets!! So sad there were only 2 😦 I hate washing and drying lettuce so I always buy the organic boxed stuff. I also don’t have a salad spinner..
