Today was the real showdown though. John just couldn't take it and wanted McDonald's for lunch. He wanted it bad. So, ya know, I encouraged him not to, but there's only so much I can do. I'm his wife, not his mom. So John had McDonald's and I had a big salad. I turned down McDonald's when I had a super easy out on it. I'm really proud of myself! AND it was a delicious salad. I've had this salad everyday this week. It's so damn good.
Here's the recipe to my oh-so-delicious salad:
Vinaigrette (this makes enough for a week's worth of salads)
- 1 small shallot finely chopped or minced
- 4 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 3 tsp dijon mustard
Whisk in slowly:
- 10 tbsp olive oil
Green beans (I use LOTS, so good... steam for 3 minutes, submerge in cold water, add to salad)
Goat cheese (the secret delicious ingredient)
Tomorrow is Saturday. The weekend. I really hope I can pull it off and make healthy food choices!
*I had a take-out coffee every morning with sugar and cream. This was my "bad thing" of the week.
