Oriental Chicken Salad! Yumm! :]

So today I discovered a new love in life... It's name is Oriental Chicken Salad from Applebees! Holy yum!! :] 

Life is good...  My school semester starts this week, which I'm actually pretty excited about.  I'm taking American Government, Personal Economics, A Language Arts, & Psychology.  Should be pretty fun, especially psychology & government.  I'm taking them all online this semester so that I can be there for the birth of my sister's baby at the end of April.  That way I can stay there for a few weeks, get my work done while I'm there, and not have to worry about missing anything. 

I really need to get into the habit of cooking again!  That is going to be my goal for next week- cook at least 5 of the days of the week.  I have a few weight watcher cookbooks that I really like, but I could definitely still use some more ideas.

  1. Sounds like an exciting semester. And congratulations Aunt Katie.

  2. Aaaaaaw, Auntie Katie. Sounds sweet!
    What sort of Language Arts are you taking? As a language teacher (EFL) I'm curious!
    I have a huge amount of respect for you, going to school. I don't think I could ever do it again. I have done it and even then it was a drama! Lol! Took me 7 years to get my degree! By that I had been teaching for 3 years!

    Healthy recipes.....oh dear. Rice with vegetables from a wok with a nice sauce.
    Pasta salads, I particularly love. With lettuce, red pepper, chicken, some sort of fruit...anything really! Hot or cold. During the summer I love them cold with some dark bread.
    There are plenty of recipe websites out there. Good luck!
    Have fun at school!

  3. Just found your blog! Come check me out?

    My classes resume on Friday. I'm looking forward to this semester, too. I'm taking Poetry 2 Workshop, Fiction 2 Workshop, Advanced Reporting, and Theory Practice in Expository Writing. Guess how will be doing lots of writing this semester?!

    Best wishes this semester.


  4. Turkey chili is one of my easy go-to healthy recipes. Brown turkey, throw in chopped onion and green pepper and a can of pinto beans, add a big can of diced tomatoes (not drained) and let simmer for 15 minutes. Add your own spices of course. Super easy, cheap and YUM!

  5. I just posted a salad on my blog that is my new fav - Spinach with tuna salad, strawberries and almonds! So YUMMY! I would have never thought that tuna and strawberries would taste good together, but they do!!!

  6. Thanks for the great ideas everyone! :]
