First things first…with all my free time I designed a new header (look above) We like? We don’t like? Idk, it may be changing again….By the end of the summer my entire blog will be re-designed haha.
Also, thanks to everyone for being so nice about my current state of Unemployment. To clarify I’m not trying to be a brat and complain about having free time (let’s face it, that’s pretty bratty), it’s the complete lack of money comin in and my slowly dwindling bank account that has me worried…Bein alive and goin after your dreams can get expensive! (not to mention all those train tickets…)
Now on to more important things….Food.
I tend to get on food kicks where that’s all I’ll eat at a certain meal for weeks on end. Currently my obsession is this broccoli-cheddar salad with craisens. I found the original recipe on Pinterest (didn’t pin it so can’t find it, fail) but I know it called for bacon which I don’t really eat. (go ahead and get all your un-American jokes out I’ll wait…….)
Anyway, this is a super simple and cheap lunch option. I usually also add carrots or an apple on the side for a complete meal but for someone who doesn’t like spinach salads this is a good alternative. Seriously, spinach salad make me wanna hurl, ew….
Back to the recipe. Like I said it’s super simple:
- Head of broccoli
- block of favorite cheese (I use colby-jack b/c it’s cool lookin)
- nuts (optional)
- favorite dressing
Chop the broccoli into little bits. That’s not the technical term but Lord knows what that is. Also cube the cheese into tiny blocks. If you’ve ever seen me eat cheese (it isn’t often) it’s always pre-sliced or grated. Why? I have a strange fear of touching cheese…Idk, it’s all rubbery and gross, it’s weird I know. I Did, however, cube this cheese all on my own so high five to me!
Sprinkle in craisens and any other option you’re adding. I’ve added pine nuts before but it doesn’t need anything else in my opinion. Finally pour a small amount of dressing on and toss? I always pre-make a huge tupperware full of this when I get home from the store then add the dressing to the individual servings later when I’m actually gonna eat it. Speaking of dressing I’ve been using Italian b/c that’s what I happen to have but I bet this’d be good with ranch or blue cheese if those are more your style. Food for thought, get crazy with it and make it yours.
Whatcha think? Broccoli-Cheddar salad for the win?
