Soup and Salad

I'm on a soup and salad kick. I have a strong tendency toward food fixations. For months it has been granola. I could NOT get enough granola. Now, that's fading to a few times each week. For meals lately though, I've had a taste for nothing except soup and salad. After I ate the above pictured lunch for the 5th day in a row last week, I snapped a photo...for posterity, and slow blog days. I guess you could call this a slow blog day, since the 6 loads of laundry I just folded while watching License to Wed (stupid movie) did not provide me with any enthralling writing material.

Since we're discussing food here, as usual, here are two other food items that I've been enamored with as of late...

I'm not joking when I tell people that I could live on salad and ice cream alone. They are by far my two most favorite things to eat. I've gone through several bottles of the new Kraft Honey Dijon Vinaigrette in the past couple of months. I've also had many unfortunate run ins with Snickers Ice Cream Bars, enough run ins that I decided to glance at the calorie info on the side of the box a few days ago (18o not too bad). I blame my local HEB for putting a hang tag with $1.50 off coupons right next to the Snickers bars making them around $1 per box. I'm trying to fight off the urge to pick up 10 boxes for my freezer, because I don't trust myself with that kind of supply.

Clearly I have issues because just writing this post is making me salivate, and I haven't eaten lunch yet...time to go eat a giant salad (and maybe a Snickers Ice Cream bar to wash it down). Happy Nap Time!

yummy yummy yummy.. to all of it!! I've been obsessed with salad this pregnancy and the new Kraft dressings are SOOO good- we love the ranch dressing. I will not divulge how many bottles have been consumed since we discovered its goodness. :) We're typically raspberry vinaigrette people but I can't get enough of the ranch. And Snickers ice cream bars... N bought me some as a surprise a few weeks ago, mmmm!! I's buy 10 boxes if they were that cheap and I'd use the excuse that we need to fill our freezer. ;)
