Salad and Bread

As most of you know, I'm trying really hard somewhat hard to lose weight. I wish I could say I was fully and completely in this thing, but sadly I am not. I don't know why, but don't worry, I'm working on it. I just hope I get there sooner rather than later! I'm there with the exercise. I still need to get there with the nutrition.

So tonight after my workout, I was feeling a bit vulnerable... and knew we had hardly anything good to work with in the fridge that I actually felt like utilizing. Thankfully we had enough ingredients on hand to make a decent salad, and I'd hardboiled eggs last week, so... I threw together a salad.

And tossed in some bread.

The salad had romaine lettuce, mini cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, and already cooked ham but I sauteed it on the stove to brown/warm it a bit.

What do you think? I'm glad it tasted yummy and filled our tummies, cuz I had no other bright ideas brewing! I think ordering a pizza would have been the next step!

And yes, the bread is from a package... Pillsbury French Bread Loaf from the grocer's fridge section. I've never made homemade bread unless in a breadmaker. I'm just not domestic.

Um... at all.

And it was mmm mmm good!
