Today my girlfriend asked me to go to lunch with them. We bundled up to go outside, just across our building. I didn’t bring lunch today so I immediately agreed. Besides she was giving us a $5 gift certificate so that pays more than half of our order. Not a bad deal.
I knew my friend is cooking a yummy pork dish tonight and it would call for a lot of rice. So I won’t spoil my appetite for dinner I ordered salad. Besides after all the heavy food from December, a fresh salad tastes wonderful. It does not matter that the day would be perfect for a cup of soup and a sandwich like they ordered, I prefer a well-prepared salad with plenty of garnishes.
I want my salad to have several layers of flavors and textures. Like the Santa Fe Ranch. It has fresh corn, corn chips, white chicken meat, head lettuce, carrots, cheddar cheese, salsa and as the name implies, Ranch dressing. The dinner size order was enough to last me till I got home.
And best of all, guilt-free.
