Wow – you can definitely tell Fall came to Kansas three days ago!! We have had lows in the 40s and 50s overnight and temperature no higher than 82.
There has been a cool breeze everyday, so we’ve had the windows open constantly. It’s so nice!! (This week we should clean the windows.)
However, with the windows open, I’ve either had my allergies bothering me, or I’m developing a cold. We’ll have to see later today which it is. But it’s worth having fresh air in the house, right?
I finally bought milk, so we can have cereal as well.

Asian Grilled Chicken Salad with Lime Dressing
This makes SO MANY servings – maybe 12-15
Originally from Susie QT Pies
2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken (can use leftover grilled chicken)
1 medium red cabbage, cored & thinly chopped
2 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
1 head of romaine lettuce, torn into pieces
1 head of iceberg lettuce, torn into pieces
4 green onions, thinly sliced (optional)
Optional crunchy items for salad
1 cup cashews
1 cup broken ramen noodles
1 cup chow mein noodles
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup fresh lime juice (4-5 limes)
1/2 cup vegetable or olive oil
1-2 tablespoons honey for taste
garlic power, salt & pepper added to taste
1. If you don’t have any leftover grilled chicken, then cook chicken in a skillet, adding some Mrs. Dash
2. Toss together salad ingredients, except the chicken.
3. Combine ingredients for the lime dressing.
4. Set up optional ingredients as a “salad bar”, for each person to add in what they like.
This is a great leftover meal!! I just keep the chicken and crunchy ingredients separated from the salad.
What are you cooking this week? We’d love to hear about it!
