WIAW – the salad edition
My family loves Souplantation. We’ve been big fans for a long time. In fact, when I was pregnant with Dancing Girl, it was my go-to lunch place. (I really believe the old wives tale about the foods you craved when pregnant are the foods your child will enjoy – because my super picky eater loves the place). Seriously, I would walk around my office trying to talk people into going to lunch there with me.
We eat at Souplantation possibly once a week. Okay, it’s usually every 2 weeks, but I really could go there every day. Besides, with the awesome Family Meal coupon we get, dinner for 4 is about $22.00. And everyone gets a huge amount of veggies and my kids will always try something new (that I didn’t have to prepare and throw away if no one likes it).
We had dinner there this past weekend. Here are the family creations. Let’s see if you can guess which salad belongs to which person.
Salad A: pasta, corn and little bit of greens and two pickles
Salad B: sizeable with lots of ranch
Salad C: lots of different toppings including beets
Salad D: two distinct salads, a Ceasar and a zucchini and cheese pile
For the record – everyone got up to fill up drinks and get soup and such so I took the pictures undetected as my family
hates isn’t big fans of my food picture obsession taking.
And to round out the week of salads with a final two.
Here is a yummy salad I had for lunch the other day. It was a bunch of leftovers and I added sliced green apples – so yummy.
And a final salad: a watercress, spinach, green onion, strawberry and goat cheese creation. Fantastic. Goat cheese is the best.
I tend to be a ‘kitchen sink’ kind of salad maker. I throw everything I have in the bowl. It was very difficult to make the last salad pictured – I have so many other things just screaming to be put in a salad. But it was so good, I will definitely make it again. And again.
What’s your salad style? Are you a kitchen sink’er? Or do you like the minimalist kind?
What are your guesses for the family salads: four people:
2) MMT (my husband – I like to call Mr. Math Teacher for newer readers)
3) Dancing Girl (picky eater extrordinaire)
4) Dude (just a typical kid eater)
Thanks Jen at Peas and Crayons for hosting WIAW. The theme this month is snacking, but I’m rather obsessed with salads, so I’m not following the rules. I’ll get to that next week. In the meantime, I actually posted yesterday about healthy snacking ideas and included my first vl0g – you can find that here.
