Great Greens Salad

If you were in San Francisco this weekend I hope you enjoyed the amazing weather.  It was such a great weekend to lounge about, watch the pro-bowl, exercise, and eat great food.   

On Saturday night, Allison, Chris and I made pizza using Trader Joes' pre-made crust.  Quick tips:  

Knead in extra flour (about 1/2 Cup) and roll-out as thin as possible
 Cook one side without adding toppings until golden
Remove from oven, flip, add toppings, and continue to cook until cheese has melted and top side is now golden

  I posted a picture of the pizza on Instagram (which I'm obsessed with by the way).  Do you use Instagram?  If you do check me out at haylessf!

For a healthy end to my weekend I made this salad dubbed 'Great Greens' since it's stocked full of avocado, brussels sprouts, green apple, shredded chicken, and arugula.  While I was cooking Allison took pictures of me for my blog!  She's an amazing photographer and once she's done editing I'll share some of the photo op with you!

Great Greens Salad
4 - 6 Servings

1/2 Rotisserie Chicken - Meat Shredded
3 Cups Arugula
1 Green Apple diced
1 Avocado diced
2 Cups Brussels Sprouts sliced (about 20 Brussels Sprouts)
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
Juice from 2 Limes
2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 Cup Olive Oil + 2 Tbsp Olive Oil

Saute sliced brussels sprouts in 2 Tbsp olive oil, salt, and pepper in medium sauce pan over medium high heat until browned.  Toss shredded chicken, avocado, brussels sprouts, apple in large bowl.  Whisk together 1/4 cup olive oil, cider vinegar, lime juice.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Toss salad with the dressing and season to taste with salt/pepper.  Serve.

Một trong những việc đáng tiếc và không thể đoán trước của chủ nhà trong trang tri noi that và bảo quản và cải tạo nhà thời khủng hoảng là giá vật liệu xây dựng, thuê các nhà thầu biến động thất thường. Vấn đề này thường xảy ra sửng sốt và phải được xử lý một cách nhanh chóng trường hợp không sẽ tiêu tốn không ít tiền, nhiều gia đình thì phải ngừng lại khi công trình đang dang dở vì giá thành đã cạn. do go noi that phong khach được nhiều tổ ấm sử dụng trong tô điểm không bởi chỉ vì tiền bạc xuất sắc mà chất lượng đi kèm cũng ko phải thua sút bất kì tác phẩm đồ trang trí trong nhà nào do go noi that phong ngu , do go that nha bep cũng không còn quá xa vời với những hộ dân có mức thu nhập trung bình như trước đây. gia cong sat , sat my thuat , gia cong inox thổi một luồng gió mới vào ngân hàng đồ đồ trang trí trong nhà giúp người dân có nhiều sự lựa mua hơn. bang hieu , logo , poster , gian hang hoi cho , cong chao su kien , giúp sức trong ngành su kien quang cao khiến người dân đối mặt với thời buổi tiền bạc leo thang một cách nhẹ nhàng và lạc quan hơn
