WOW! It is finally Friday. You know, I couldn't wait to get all the kids home for the summer and now I am looking for camps and VBS's to send them to. You knew I would change my mind, didn't you?
Yeah, me too.
But, we are keeping busy and we even had a garage sale yesterday. We plan to finish it up next weekend. Why, next weekend, you ask?
Because this weekend is only my FAVORITE weekend of the year!
It is Old Shawnee Days and I LOVE it. We kick the weekend off with a parade and candy first thing Saturday morning and spend the rest of the weekend eating healthy foods like funnel cakes and kettle korn. Then we ride those scary rides that travel around our fair state and get put up in a couple of hours.
OK, I don't ride them. My kids do. And, I am not sure what that says about my parenting. Don't tell me, either.
The thought of this weekend brings tears to this mama's eyes. I hope they remember the first weekend of June as one of their favorites years from now. However, they will probably remember it as the weekend that Mom MADE them go to Old Shawnee Days and walk through the craft booths. I do love me some craft booths. LOVE THEM!
But, first we need to eat a healthy meal to offset the nachos and slushies. Not too mention Dippin Dots, turkey drumsticks, and fried Snickers bars. (Oh, I am just kidding about the fried Snickers, because THAT would be gross and clog some arteries.) So, how about a yummy salad with...you guessed it...chicken. (If you didn't guess it, you are new here. Welcome. I hope you like chicken!)
I threw this little salad together for the first time a couple of months ago. We love it and eat it often!
Mrs. Nurse Boy's Chicken Spinach Salad
Grilled Chicken--or cooked however you like!
Nuts--Sunflower Seeds or Walnuts or Honey Roasted Walnuts (which I found at WalFart)
Light Raspberry Vinaigrette (Or any other sweet dressing)
Mix ingredients together and enjoy! This stuff really is yummy!!!
We are off for some fun and tummy aches! Have an awesome weekend!
