Good to be Home and Craving Salad

A journey is fun but it is always good to be home....especially since fall is in the air! What a nice time of year! Looooveee it!

I will be writing a big blog about our food experiences in Italy (and sharing some of the 1200 pics), but first a couple meals/recipes to get back on track!

Jeremy and I came home to an empty fridge and pantry :( so we headed to the grocery store to stock up on all our favorites. Much to our enjoyment, fall foods are everywhere. Check out this produce aisle:

Acorn, Butternut, and Spaghetti squash
Sweet Potatoes
Honey Crisp Apples (only the best apple every!)
Sweet Tango apples (a new kind!!!...made from honeycrisp and another kind...can't remember...sweet yet spicy=good)
Redish golden pears (would know the name but Jeremy ate the last one :)

The first meal I made when we got home...well besides a big bowl of cereal...was a big spinach salad. Man were we craving that after weeks of pasta and... well... more pasta.

On this salad:
Marinated chicken breasts (buckwheat honey, worcheshires, red wine vinegar, touch of sea salt)Bed of baby spinach leaves
Kiwi, sliced
Avocado, cubed
Fat free cottage cheese
Dressing: olive oil and balsalmic vinegar

More to come...chile, acorn squash, and J and I's apple extravagnza!
Until next time...
look good, feel good, do good
