And then tonight, I made more of a chef salad ratherthan the Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad that I had originally planned. The chicken I had cooked up on my Once a Month Mom freezer meal cooking day this past Saturday. I cut the chicken into strips, cooked it up in a skillet with some Italian dressing and froze in a freezer bag. For tonight, after making a salad with some lettuce, shredded carrots, and sliced cucumbers (from the garden!) I heated the chicken (already thawed in frig) with some cubed turkey ham in the microwave for about 1 minute, then placed on top of the salad. Added a light amount of honey mustard dressing (not Texas Pete this time :) and voila! Chef Salad. The whole family enjoyed it, and it tasted really good.
Have you ever tried marinating your chicken with Italian dressing? Give it a try. Even if you're not an Italian dressing fan, I think you'll really enjoy the flavor of grilled or saute'd chicken that has marinated in Italian dressing. Your chicken will be very flavorful, moist and tender!
Note that there are two toy boxes inside the closet (difficult to see because they are in the back corners behind the doors) and the toys still end up on the closet floor, not in the toy boxes. I can't get mad or upset at my son for his version of "cleaning up" because it is a sincere effort and he's always so pleased with the results and excited about showing me what a big boy he is each time he cleans. My goal right now is to steer him in the direction of putting toys into the toy boxes and books on the bookshelf, and to do so in a manner that is encouraging to him. The last thing I want is for him to feel like his version is not good enough.
Here's the rest of the bedroom. We had an indoor camping night that lasted more like a week, and now the tent is still sitting in the middle of the room--not where it belongs, of course.
