This morning all I wanted was another fresh baked roll. So that’s what I had!
It’s a happy coincidence that the butter looks like a face
I can’t get over how long these hold me over! I was full for hours!
I had a coupon for a free sample of Philadelphia’s new cooking crème and while I was a little unsure about this I was willing to try it and grabbed the “Santa Fe” variety.
As soon as I brought it home I knew I wanted to make chicken salad with it.
I sautéed some chicken until fully cooked and stirred the cream cheese in.
Which I then layered on a bed of spinach and romaine (I’m not a fan of spinach’s texture but it’s so nutritious I figured I could mix it with romaine for some crunch).
And I topped it with a few chipotle cashews for some extra texture.
It was good, but not something I couldn’t have made myself with fewer calories. It really just tasted like cream cheese mixed with salsa. I guess it’d be great for people who are too busy to cook, but it’s probably not something I would have paid for.
However, that didn’t stop me from turning it into pasta sauce a few hours later.
Now this was something special, albeit ugly. The flavors blended together so well, it was wonderful!
I’m feeling a little melancholy today. I’m ready for the next few months to be over and to be done with this distance thing. I’m ready to know he’s safe. Just a few more weeks and he’ll be home. I’m trying to stay positive.
