Jon had a really rough day yesterday that involved him leaving the house at 2:30AM. He had eaten dinner the previous night super early so he could be in bed by 6PM. (He needs at least 8 - usually 9, hours of beauty sleep to look as good as he does) Last night, I figured his food schedule would be a little off, so I wanted something light and easy for dinner. In my family that always meant "big salads" which is what we called entree salads. Big salads could be made of any ingredients, but they always had some form of protein in them. This one has grilled chicken. In light of my tropical yearnings, I threw in some pineapple too. Jon was pretty impressed. Here are some choice quotes:
"I don't think I've ever had mint in my salad before."
"This is really healthy huh?"
And just in case you were thinking it didn't go over so well......
"I really like when you make things like this for dinner." Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww
