And everyday for lunch Dale steals about 10% of it. Usually she sits next to me and I spoon bites into her mouth. But the other day I served her portion into a bowl. She was so cute eating it.
Here’s my recipe. It’s so yummy! Just thinking about the recipe is making me want lunch, but it’s only 10am.
Rachel’s Lunch Salad
1 16ounce box Earthbound Farms spring mix
1 small avocado diced
1 ear of sweet corn grilled (in the summer) or 1/2 can sweet corn (in the winter)
1/3 cup shelled pistachios
I usually cut the spring mix up a bit with a pair of scissors.
I’ve had people mention that my lunch must take a long time to eat. It does. That’s one of the things that I like about it. I really like to eat. When I eat a standard lunch that I can consume in 3 minutes flat I get really disappointed. It usually takes me 20-25 minutes to finish my lunch salad and I love every minute. Plus usually Dale is sitting on my lap or near me stealing bites. Or I’m eating and serving the kids, and unloading the dishwasher, and moving the laundry through, etc… I know that it’s eating on the run. But really, what mom actually sits down to eat lunch. I just embrace it.
