So I'm a little behind right now. Moving house and holidays ... and single parenting, have left me searching, but failing to find, more available hours in the day. At this point I'm considering giving up sleep. I mean, who needs to sleep anyway, right?!?
And don't even get me started on dating ... it's hell out there people, HELL! But, I digress...
Back to the purpose of this post, a simple Asian Chicken Salad for when you are on-the-go that I shared over at the Bentgo blog a little while ago.
So, head on over there, grab the simple recipe, and learn more about the awesome Bentgo containers.

I recently put in a new rule at the dinner table that the kids had to try something new with every meal, well, those meals that contained something that they hadn't tried before at least. A few weeks ago I made a salad for dinner. Normally I make a salad on the side of a main dish, but this time I just made a salad, it was a Chinese chicken salad with grilled chicken, carrots, mandarins and lettuce. I added the dressing on the side for the kids but served the meal for dinner. After the initial whining subsided I made the usual declaration that if they ate their dinner they could have dessert. Let's face it technically this dish contained a lot of items they love, for example the grilled chicken, mandarins and carrot, but the fact that it was all combined and there was a side of dressing made them automatically think they wouldn't like it.
Miss M tried it first, she'd already taken a liking to lettuce recently and we convinced her to add just a little dressing to her chicken. She loved her entire meal, ate the whole thing and declared that when we go out to eat from now on she's ordering a salad. It was a huge victory. Flynn was still a little skeptical, but he ate his meal, he wasn't thrilled about it, but he realized that it wasn't all that bad.
So now we are having salads on a regular basis. Last night we enjoyed a grilled chicken Caesar salad with homemade dressing (on the side of course). They loved it.
This is a really quick and easy dish to make and is perfect if you made a lot of grilled chicken for a backyard barbecue and have a few leftover that you want to incorporate into a dish.

Mustard is one of those condiments that's a staple in our refrigerator. It's right there alongside ketchup, mayonnaise, and horseradish. It adds so much flavor to sandwiches, hot dogs and burgers, but I also love to make dressings and marinades with it, especially now that grilling season is upon us.
Here are a couple of simple dishes we love to make during the warmer months that are sure to be a hit at your next get together.
