Flashback Friday and Big Salads

I am obsessed with BIG salads lately! After Kickboxing I was starving! I rushed home and threw together a salad that would rock your world.

I hate that pictures can’t capture the sheer magnitude of this meal. It had spinach, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, cabbage salad, chickpeas, hummus, hot sauce…big salad

I like my chickpeas warm so I heat them up in the microwave straight in the measuring cup. And it’s safe to assume many more chickpeas were consumed in the making of this meal 😉chickpeas

You know how everyone gets the biggest thrill out of new toppings for oatmeal? Well, a salad is like my oatmeal. I love getting different bites with new, good stuff.IMG_7604

I may have eaten 5 servings of Pirate’s Booty too…  IMG_7606

Flashback Friday: I was going through some old pics and found this picture of the grounds of Domain Chandon winery in Napa. I think it is beautiful.

Ben and I were road trip fiends back in CA and drove from Orange County to SF and Napa on a long weekend. It’s about 8 hours away!monica with chef

When we couldn’t drive, we took a boat. Like the time we went to Catalina Island. That was a blast! monica and ben catalina

Any big plans for the weekend? I think Ben and I are going to do some exploring :)

    We live in Ventura county and this summer I plan on lots of California Road trips. San Diego, Napa, Sonoma, San Francisco, Palos Verdes…Palm Springs….Ok maybe not ALL of them. I would be totally up for it though!

    I am totally the opposite with my salads. They always have consist of the exact same veggies. I know what I love : romaine, radishes, carrots, broccoli, red cabbage, green onions and homemade ranch dressing. Perfection…. =)

    I at present have a Lexmark, I am OK with the good quality but I’m very unhappy with how quickly it goes through ink. I need to have something that will print top quality documents and not drain me dry using the charge of ink.

    Hi, there. It is a quite extraordinary webpage and some beneficial suggestions as part of your article. I’ll be in turn. Thanks to the good written content. From the way, why not listing your webpage in our E-Commerce directory and obtain in turn link from us?

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
