Saturday was our last major admissions event of the spring season. The weather was just beautiful, the skies were clear and the temperature was in the low 60’s. I was a bit bummed about having to work, I really, really wanted to be home working in my garden, but work comes first! I knew I was going to want to come home, change my clothes, and bask in the sunshine so I needed a dinner that could be prepped ahead and made in a flash.
I settled on grilled chicken Caesar salads. Before leaving for work, I marinated the chicken in a garlic and herb marinade. I stopped by the store on the way home and picked up some romaine lettuce and a loaf of ciabatta bread. We had garlic bread with our salads. By the time I finally came inside to make dinner, I was famished and completely forgot to take a photo of my plate. I did take pictures of the leftovers, just so I had something to show for my efforts!
Whenever we grill chicken, I try to have a few pieces leftover so I can make chicken salad for lunch during the week. It is all about the planning! Happy Spring, here’s hoping your flowers are blooming and your trees are budding.
