It was 81°F here today. I know. January. 81°F. Crazy?! When you are given a gift like this beautiful weather you have to get outside and enjoy it.
Gone most of the day I packed my super cool bento box with lunch and snacks to help me from making poor choices while away from home.
Blue Box (top left): (in blue silicone cup) Pistachios and (in green silicone cup) Roasted Chickpeas
Green Box (top right): Cutie Clementine
Pink Box (bottom left): Shelly's Ham & Cheese Pea Salad
Orange Box (bottom right): Shelly's Protein Pie (SF Pistachio version)
All the good stuff in a pasta salad without those useless white carbs. You won't miss it at all.
Shelly's Ham & Cheese Pea Salad
16 oz. package Frozen Peas, steamed
1 cup Cooked Ham, cubed (great use for spiral ham leftovers)
1/2 cup Smoked Mozzarella, cubed
2 Green Onions, diced
1 Red Bell Pepper, diced
3 oz. Fage Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar
1 teaspoon Dried Dill
dash of Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
Steam peas and chill. When thoroughly chilled add remaining ingredients.
Pour dressing over and mix till combined. Chill at least an hour before serving.
It's supposed to be more of the same weather-wise today and although I would love to head outside on another adventure today I really need to de-Christmas my house. So the trunks and tubs are out and I'm spending the day wrapping favorite ornaments and cleaning. Oh joy! What's everyone doing this weekend? If you are in the deep freeze. Hop a flight.
Many hands make light work (had that as a fortune cookie once)
You can help me de-Christmas, we'll be done quicker and can all go enjoy this AWESOME weather ;)
