salad supremeeeeee.

Since staying at home I have had such a hard time with eating a decent lunch.  Lots of days I forget. By the time I nurse the boys, feed them lunch and clean the bananas and peas off every surface in the kitchen I forget that I never ate lunch.  So, come 2 o'clock I realize I never ate anything!  Then I'm forced to grab something random to eat.   If I do think to make lunch I typically just make a pb&j.  Big girl lunch.  Let me tell ya.

Well, I went to my sister-in-law's house a few months ago and she told me about salad supreme.  


She told me it made the best pasta salad!  And, she had some awesome pasta salad made for lunch.  I loved it!  I have been wanting to make some ever since!

Finally, when I was at Target last week I bought some veggie farfalle noodles.  

Once I got ready to make it I couldn't remember what my sister-in-law put in her's.  So, I looked around to see what I could find and it actually turned out really good!  It was a great lunch for multiple days.  I made it and was able to just grab a bowl of it when I got hungry!

Here's what you'll need if you want to make some:


Ingredients:

  • 12 oz. box of tri-color pasta 
  • 1/4 c. salad supreme 
  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 1/2 bottle good seasons italian dressing (after you've made the dressing - not just the powder)
  • 1/8 c. pine nuts
  • A few shakes of feta cheese
  • A few handfuls of spinach
I boiled my noodles, then added sliced cumbers, pine nuts, feta, a few handfuls of spinach (why not?  add some good nutrients!), then poured the salad supreme and dressing in.  I tossed well and refrigerated for a while.  

You could pretty much add anything.  Onions, red peppers, almonds.  Anything that would tickle your fancy! Yay for a semi-big-girl-lunch!
