Potluck Wednesday!

Howdy folks! Isn’t today just a great day already? Hope everyone is feeling as good as I am today, if you’re not, hope your day brightens up soon 🙂

I woke up rather late this morning but I didn’t panic, I just grabbed a to-go breakfast of a Larabar, banana and chocolate soymilk (in my favorite to go cup):


Oh….my….goodness….has anyone else had the peanut butter cookie Larabar yet? It is the best bar I have ever had, no joke. I looooove peanut butter stuff and this was unbelieveable. You gotta try it, I’m so glad they came out with some new flavors, I wasn’t too excited about the other ones except for ginger snap.

My friends and I have started a potluck group on Wednesday nights; we have been having girl’s night for years, but we have always gone out to eat and so in an effort to save money and our health (and in return getting more time to spend together), we have started bringing our own stuff over.

This week, I had to do a side dish, so I made a salad with 4 cups baby greens (a spring mix), 1 cup fresh sliced strawberries (I sprinkled some lemon juice on them to keep them from wilting), 1/2 cup toasted almond slices, and some Annie’s gingerly vinaigrette dressing. I have tossed it all together except for the dressing; I haven’t decided how much dressing I’ll add in, but if I end up using 1/2 cup, the salad should be 90 calories per serving (I made enough for 4 of us).

The best part is I didn’t even have to buy anything, I had all of that stuff at home already 🙂

Happy Wednesday!
