2 ounces feta cheese, tomato and basil flavor

Dinner was fantastic. We will definitely be making this meal again, especially the salad. I added whole grain and brown rice medley for a small amount of grains.  Addison liked the salad too. Brent opted for raw carrots for his veggie, not as adventurous as others at the table.  😉

On a side note, always something ridiculous happens during my day. Today it was a quick, stealth ant attack on the pantry. I hate it when this happens!!! Todd and I had to totally unload the pantry during the middle of preparing dinner. The only explanation for the ants is “summer time” I guess… On a positive note, I bet I have the cleanest and most organized pantry in the neighborhood now.
