Well, the countdown for the "40 and Fab" tour is T-4 days. I leave at 7:15 am on Friday morning for Vegas. Should be tons of fun, a weekend with the girls.
Things were pretty hectic these last few weeks. Darren has been traveling, and when he's not been traveling I've been getting things... if it's not one thing, it's another. After Vegas though that's it! Just the regular holiday bustle, which is more than enough. .
This past weekend I co-hosted a baby shower for one of my best friends. Melissa is due early December. She's a diva, in the so-much-of-a-girly-girl sense, and we expect that she'll teach Sophia Danielle to be the same. The shower's theme was a leopard/animal print and Hello Kitty Mix.
I tried my hand at making a diaper cake. Yes, you read it right. A cake made of Diapers. I actually came out great!
Here is a pic of me and the Mommy-to-Be... She's glowing! I told you I'd get a picture in there somewhere!
So I went to Panera Bread the other day and enjoyed their Fuji Apple Chicken salad. I have to say it was yummy. But after I went to the website and read the nutritional content I was less than pleased. A 500+ Calorie salad and a ton of ingredient names in the dressing I can't even pronounce. Although one that I can pronounce is Propelyn Glycol, which is found in lighter fluid. Uh, yeah... I don't think so.
So I took it upon myself to make a similar salad.
Romain Lettuce (they used mixed Spring Greens)
Pecans (just a few per salad)
Dried Apple Chips
Gorgonzola Cheese (just enough)
Rotisserie Chicken (Breast only No Skin)
Donna's Fake Fuji Apple Dressing (6 servings) 2 T. Olive Oil 1 T. White Balsamic Vinegar 1 T. Apple Cider Vinegar 1 T. Garlic Powder 1 T. Onion Powder 1 1/2 t. Dijon Mustard 3 T. Organic Frozen Applejuice Concentrate
