A Change of Pace-My Lunch!

Wow! I can't believe it's been four months since I was on here. I've missed all of you so very much, but my life has been a little crazy over the past four months. I've had to reprioritize my life and my family, but I just wanted to stop by and say Hi!

I've had a change of pace with the cupcake business lately, it's slowed down, which for this season of my life is a good thing, but I'm hoping with the new year, I can start anew!

But before I get back to cupcakes and desserts I have to share something with you. A little thing I like to call, lunch. Yep, lunch. I was selected to be part of the Buzz Campaign for Lean Cuisine Salad Additions. Okay, if any of you have read any of my blog posts before this one, you know that I'm not exactly the salad type. In fact, when I think of salads, I mostly think it would taste better to go all Hunger Games and eat the pine needles and weeds from my yard. I'm not a salad person, to say the very least. But today that all changed!

As part of the Lean Cuisine Salad Creations Campaign I was given my choice between Cranberry & Chicken, Asian-style Chicken, Bistro Chicken and Southwest-style Chicken. I decided to go out on a limb, and try the Asian-style Chicken Salad Additions.

Despite my hestitation I chopped my lettuce, warmed up the steamer packet, and piled it all together in my pretty salad bowl. I sat down and took one bite. And I was hooked!

The combination of greens, grilled chicken, steamed broccoli, peppers, carrots, edimame, and asian  noodles, all topped with the sesame vinegrette dressing was perfect!

Wanna see? Here you go. This is it. The salad that changed my world!!

So, all of you out there who think that you're not salad folk, think again! The Lean Cuisine Salad Additions are changing the world of sticks and pine needles!!!
