Summer Salad

by Meghann on August 29, 2009

I present to you my Saturday evening.


Does anyone else watch Greek? It’s highly addictive show on ABC Family. Even though I was never greek myself the show still makes me reminiscence of my college days. ๐Ÿ™‚

I ended up staying at my parent’s for dinner. No one was very inspired to cook anything so I threw out the idea of a summer salad. While my Dad cooked up the shrimp on the stove top, I chopped the fruit and veggies.


My salad included

  • Red Leaf Lettuce
  • Jicama
  • Yellow Tomato
  • Peach
  • Strawberries
  • Red Onion
  • Mushrooms
  • Shrimp
  • With a drizzle of Raspberry Vinaigrette


The fruit & shrimp combo was very tasty. This meal was just what I needed to end my day with.

I’m going to call it an early night tonight. Tomorrow I have big plans to meet Megan and Kelly for a 10 mile run at 6:30am tomorrow! Wish us luck!

I am doing the same thing as you. I’m glad you decided to stay put, I was just reading you lunch post and was going to tell you to continue to lounge ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m spoiled with having a wonderful family as well. There is nothing better!

That carrot cake cupcake looked heavenly, especially with the ocean in the background. I’m having some food envy goin’ on!

GOOD LUCK! Megan had been so nervous about the big double digit run, but I can’t wait to hear how it all goes. I’m sure it will go by in a flash with all the chit chat amongst the 3 of you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Greek is so my guilty pleasure!! And in many ways it is very accurate to how Greek life is. And yesss – new season starts on Monday!

Your dinner looks so refreshing for a warm summer day! I hope your run goes well tomorrow, I’ve been working on building my mileage back up ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m craving shrimp now! Looks so good.

17 Jenn (eating bender) August 30, 2009 at 1:30 am

I love Saturday evenings with DVDs ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve seen a couple episodes of Greek and it is definitely a fun show! I never went Greek during my time at school, either – but it’s always interesting/addicting to watch shows like that one and see all the “drama” – Gossip Girl, anyone?

Summer salad with shrimp is SO good! I swear you could put shrimp on almost anything (except perhaps ice cream…) and it would taste 10x better.

Good luck on the run tomorrow!

I LOVE Greek! I got into it last season. When is it coming back on? Feels like it’s been forever!

Have fun on your run this morning!

19 caitsplate August 30, 2009 at 9:10 am

HAHA! That was pretty much my exact Saturday night only I had a veggie burger salad and watched Everwood!

Never heard of that show. It was a movie night for me and Hannah – we rented The Soloist and it was quite possibly the worst movie we had ever seen and 45 minutes later, just turned it off!

By now I am sure you are done with your run – hope it was a good one!
