 I think what makes me so happy about this salad is the dressing.  So simple too!  I used 4 tablespoons of hot salsa verde sauce and mixed it with 2 tablespoons of fat free ranch dressing – so 6 tablespoons of dressing (which is a lot!) comes in at just 40 calories!

  • 2 cups romaine
  • 1 cup red cabbage
  • red pepper
  • carrots
  • cucumbers
  • 1/2 ounce Mexican cheese
  • 3 ounces cooked beef taco meat
  • salsa verde dressing
  • 1/2 ounce of crushed tortilla chips (for croutons! :D)
I'll definitely make this again!

And it took forever to eat so I am excited!  Didn’t work out today, I had to put Tony’s medical bills in order for our flex spending.  We set aside $5,000 this year and we will have no problem reaching that amount! 

And I talked to our insurance company and they told me I didn’t have to pay a $2,000 to a doctor because he was out of network because we didn’t have a choice at the time of Tony’s last surgery.  I wrote them a nice “we aren’t paying” letter so we’ll see if that sticks!

And good news Tony’s room got moved so he is away from the construction noise and now has a view of Lake Michigan as opposed to another building!

I am spending the rest of my lunch paying a couple bills and cleaning up my dishes.  Come back tonight for one 0f Hannah’s favorite thing for dinner: BREAKFAST!  Not sure exactly what it is going to be, but I imagine hash browns will be in the mix somehow!  See you tonight!
