The Inside Scoop: Salad Edition

It’s been awhile.

Okay, maybe it hasn’t but it feels like it has been forever.  My new place is great. I have a roommate that is moving out and another one who is MIA. She’s gluten-free so this will be interesting (been there, done that, never doing it again!) trying to not cross-contaminate everything. Wish me luck! Anyway, it’s been while since I’ve posted food stuff so here we finally go!

The small corner pictures are from the drive up here. It wasn’t too bad of a drive and it went very fast once I hit the canyon. I am so grateful that Kara was able to come and help me unload the cars (plus her really nice friend who offered to come help). Once I unpacked and found all of my dishes, I decided to make rice, chicken, and hard-boiled eggs for the week. I love hard-boiled eggs for breakfast plus my Chobani or I’ll scramble eggs or sometimes I just stick with the easy cold cereal. It just depends on the morning.

For yesterday’s dinner, I made a grilled chicken strawberry salad with a side of apples and strawberries. I had the lime Chobani flip thingy (I can’t remember what it’s called) for dessert. It was super great. However, my favorite part of this entire meal was my mug. Not what was in it. Just the mug. It’s a pretty sweet one of Stonehenge.

For today’s salad, I added 2 hard boiled eggs to the salad that I had made the night before. It was super good. I’m tellin’ ya, if all salads are this good then I’m sold for life!

I was very excited to use my new egg slicer. It was so quick and there wasn’t a mess after I cut it. That was a major bonus.

All in all, I’m so excited for the whole “let’s try new salads” thing and for being here in Logan. I’m so excited to see what adventures come this school year. I’m so excited to get into the English Education program and to meet so many new people. I’m so excited to see what Heavenly Father has in store and to grow, learn, and experience new things. It’s going to be incredible!
