Recipe

ok, when my husband brags about a dinner I know that it must have been good...not just brag to me but to a friend!  It is very unexpected and I was somewhat cautious about serving a SALAD for dinner.  Justin likes healthy but Justin also likes a little more than just a salad.  I printed a Sue Bee Honey coupon and this recipe printed out and I just had to try it and I am so glad that I did.  I believe that the dressing may be the yummiest I have ever tasted!!!!  I just loved it. I made a few changes from the actually recipe and we both were very full.  I didn't know what Justin would think of the dressing but I think that he really liked it too.  He told a friend about it the next day, as they were golfing...I made it to 'golf talk'!!  Yippie.  and he then told my parents how yummy it was.  His actual statement after we ate was 'that was very refreshing'.  I wasn't sure if he was serious or being sarcastic.  Either way, it was really yummy and I am planning to do it again this week with left over Pork Tenderloin!
 

Chicken and Apple Salad
adapted from Sue Bee Honey, Apple & Pecan Salad

Salad:
Romaine Lettuce, cut up
Hand-full of Mixed Field Green
1 cup Walnuts
1 Fuji Apple, diced
1/2 cup Dried Cranberries
Feta Cheese, crumbled
1 Small Red Onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup Cucumber, peeled and chopped
Cherry Tomatoes, (I cut them in half)
2 Chicken Breast, grilled and chopped

Dressing: following the recipe exactly from Sue Bee
1/2 Cup Sue Bee Honey
2 Tablespoons Poppy Seeds
3/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 teaspoon Pepper

Over the weekend, I did a bunch of weeding, and planting.  Got all of our vegetables and herbs planted and a few flowers.  The weeding was the tough part but I am glad to have it done and to have my planter looking so much better.  My back on the other hand is not so great, but a little Advil around the clock should take care of that in another day!  I have made my first draft of my to-do list for the next two weeks to prepare for Collier's birthday!  It is low key, since it is just our families...but it is the cleaning, straightening and organizing our mess of a house is what seems to be stressing me out!
