Salad bar

Jason's Deli has a great salad bar. You can skip the line for the salad bar and/ or soup. I like being able to get just the amount of everything I want. I get some spinach, broccoli, artichoke hearts, apples, peas, cucumbers, carrots, olives, onions, peppers. Instead of dressing, I add a lot of this stuff that is like trail mix, raisins and nuts mixed together. Actually, I am unable to eat all this in one meal, but the leftovers are great out of the fridge for a snack later on.


Produce run!

Ok, this is like a greatest hits album for the produce department. I have whole wheat penne pasta on the bottom, covered by black beans, portabella mushrooms, green and red bell peppers, julienne carrots, kale, and broccolli. Apologies to any veggies I may have forgotten. I cooked a pound of penne for the week. I put all of these veggies in one large pot filled about halfway with water. I kept the water boiling on lower heat for about 15 minutes, while stirring the pot every few minutes. Again, I made enough veggies for the week. Good combination!
