Hi! Thanks for visiting "Lady and the Blog". I would love for you to learn a little more about me and my family! Hope you enjoy your visit!

A $16 Salad… It’s Good But It’s Really Not That Good

This is what convenience is all about. I could buy all the ingredients I put in my Hale and Hearty salad on my own – but instead Bill pops over and just grabs one all done up.

But the ingredients I choose are pricey! Artichokes, Roasted Peppers, Chicken Chunks.

Cha-ching. Cha-ching. Cha-ching!!!

It’s my favorite salad – but it’s really insane. Yesterday, I was in the mood and when Bill came back with the receipt we both commented on how we should be making these at home. It’s just another THING for him to do though — I have to keep reminding myself that this is all temporary.

We don’t typically eat out when I am not on bed rest. I usually have a stocked fridge to pick from.

This too shall pass…. but not before my credit card bill plummets into the red.
