Just thought I'd share ...

For those of you that know me well, you know I'm not the greatest cook in the world. I'm definitely no Paula Deen, Rachael Ray, or much to my husband's dismay ... Giada de Laurentiis. When Abby was younger, I found it really hard to spend time in the kitchen and it was so much easier to just order out. (not good!) As Abby got older, Jim started to do the cooking, which he used to do often ... before we got married. It's become a routine ... I take Abby to the park, while Daddy cooks. It's great!

However there are days that I feel like I want to cook and make a good meal for my husband. There is something fulfilling about making an enjoyable meal that he can appreciate the time and effort I put into it. Enter Amy, a blogger that is helping me reach out of my comfort zone and try some new recipes. She blogs mostly about her family and her adorable nine month old son, but has a tab full of "Working Mom Meals." Awesome recipes, not too time consuming, and ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen already.

Tonight I decided to try the California Style Chopped Salad and it was delicious! If you want to try it yourself, visit Amy over at Just Another Manic Momday. You can find this recipe in the "Working Mom Meals" tab, just scroll down a bit once there. Enjoy!

The small salad bowl was just not enough.
Needless to say, there were no leftovers ... only a happy hubby!

Oooh! You know I love cooking! I will have to go over and check out her site! And the fact that they are Working Mom Recipes mean they are perfect! I'm not a mom, but I'm a working gal so I could use some no stress, no fuss recipes! Thanks for sharing! Glad Jim enjoyed the salad! Did he leave any for you?? LOL
