I’ve been in a bit of a funk today.
Exactly 2 years ago, well… 2 years ago Nov. 29, my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer. We put her in Hospice Care on Christmas Day, and she passed away a month later. Something about this time of year always has gotten to me since it’s dark when I leave for work and dark when I get home. Something hit me today though… it was snowing, dark, slippery… and I remembered driving to my grandma’s house in her last weeks in very similar weather. I got extremely sad that she won’t be here for our wedding next year…well, at least not in body.
And now that I’m tearing up again, on to dinner!
I hit Trader Joe’s yesterday, and bought some beautiful produce and chicken, and thought that there was no better way to use it than in a beautiful salad. No recipe, just some sauteed chicken with a little garlic, and then a mix of greens and veggies:
This salad features:
- fresh baby spinach
- cherry tomatoes
- chopped fuji apple
- fat free feta cheese
- dried cranberries and mixed seeds
- sauteed chicken
I later topped this with Penzey’s Green Goddess, which I adore!
I’m off to veg out (no pun intended) for the rest of the night… and try to shake my funk.
