Okay so first, the following pictures are total crap. I still don't have a working camera and so I'm using my phone. Sorry. Moving on.
We are back from our amazing vacation. We spent two weeks with my brother-in-law and his wife in Seattle and it was wonderful. It is beautiful there and we definitely enjoyed escaping the 100+ heat in Austin for 60 degree days in Seattle. We ate out a lot. I was surprised however when I got home to find that I had only gained 3 pounds. I was expecting a lot more. Yeah! Now to get that off. Here's a picture from some of the beautiful scenery on our drive through the Cascade Mountains.
Once we got home I was ready to eat some veggies. I was seriously craving them. I think it's funny how once you start eating pretty healthy that your body will start craving the good for you foods when you don't have them. So, I decided a big salad was in order for our dinner last night. I used Green Leaf Lettuce, Spinach, Grape Tomatoes, Avocado, Cucumber and Carrots.
SASS dressings before, but it caught my eye this time. I brought it home and I love it. I tried the Smokey Ranch dressing and it was delish. It almost tasted like Bacon Ranch. Besides being delicious here are some other reasons I love it: 32 calories a serving, no ingredients that I didn't easily recognize, no corn syrup, and they're located in Austin (I love supporting local businesses). After reading some of their website I think I'm even more in love. I am going to pick up some of the Sesame Garlic dressing next time I'm at the store to use on chicken. When we were in Seattle we had some amazing take-out from a terayaki place and there was a garlic sauce for the chicken that was awesome! I'm hoping this dressing compares. I'll let you know.
