I am kinda bummed I haven’t posted more this week. Want to hear the worst excuse ever? I ran out of AA batteries for my camera and did not go to the store to purchase more.
Lame I know!
I’ve been depending on Matt’s I Pod, but yesterday he got home way after dinner was prepared so I couldn’t use it . O well, this week I am going make it a point to purchase rechargable batteries. Ever since I started blogging my camera runs out of batteries super quick! Anyone ever used these before??
Since it’s Friday (woot woot) I wanted a quick and simple meal. Initially I was going to make wraps with sardines, but after I made my sardine mix I realized that I never liked mushy with mushy (such as a wrap). The restaurant I used to work at served their tuna fish sandwiches in a wrap. I always recommended to the customers to get a toasted bun instead. I just feel that a mushy salad with a mushy wrap is not as appealing as some mush with crush.
Sardine salad (with a crunch)
- 1 can of sardines in lemon oil oil
- 1 can of chickpeas
- 1 avocado
- 2 T lemon juice
- 2 T cilantro chopped
- bunch of crushed pita chips
- salad greens
Smash the chick peas in a bowl
A spoon usually works fine, but the chick peas that I had were super hard. I wound up having to use an immersion blender. I thought maybe they were expired, but the expiration date was not till 2014. This is what I get for not using my trusted 365 brand.
Add avocado and smash it up
Then Cilantro and lemon juice
Mixed in my sardines. I did not drain them because I wanted the full flavor of the lemon olive oil
Topped with crunched up pita chips
Crunched Pita chips make an excellent topping to a salad. Especially if there is a good amount of salt, it adds such a nice kick! They are like those sesame sticks, but a lot less calories.
After everything was mixed I plopped in in a bowl with a little extra greens.
Love how easy it is!
The Washington Humane Society is having a big fundraising event tomorrow called Fashion for Paws. I am volunteering as a Dog Handler. My job is to hang out with the dogs ‘backstage’.. at least I think it is.. O well, I know tomorrow is going to be fun. I can’t wait to see all the cool looking pups! If you get a chance, check out this site. They have a lot of great information, and if you are in the DC area and looking for a pet definitively stop in one of their two locations.
Speaking of which, the Washington Humane Society is also hosting a Cutest Pet Contest.
I completley agree, that you two can totally win it. However, I don’t think this picture will cut it. Any long time Veggies n Dogs readers recommend any photo that you have seen? Would LOVE your recommendations!
Have a great Friday!
