Healthy eating can be good eats...

Friday was a movie date night! We shared a Panda Express meal and saw a great movie, Wanted.

Saturday was a busy day filled with errands but we had a great breakfast at Butterfields that kept us full for almost the whole day. At night, we went to the circus and saw beautiful tigers!

Sunday started out with an early lunch at my parent's house. My mom made us beef noodle soup aka PHO. It was delicious. Then Kar spent the next few hours watching football (soccer for US folks) and I went to see Sex and the City. Then we cleaned the house and I made something healthy for us to pack lunch next week.

It was Mediterranean Chicken Salad. Basically, rice, canned chicken, green beans, red pepper, celery, and red onions. You mix everything together with a olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper vinaigrette. This dish can be serve warm or cold and it was pretty easy to make. It was a one pot dish and I'm happy that we have some food to pack for our lunches for the next couple of days. It is also very filling and healthy.

The original recipe said to use Tuna, but I didn't have tuna so I used Chicken instead.
