He's Home!!

I have a million, billion emotions running through my mind, and oh so much to say, but for now...We are a little 'busy'. Bowchickawowow. In case you don't follow me on Instagram, here is my new favorite photo EVER. I'm sure you can understand why.

To my very own personal superhero,
I say welcome home, lover. Let's forget about the world and lose sight of anything but each other. With you home, the house will feel whole again and I will be whole again. I don't need you to complete me, but I am grateful for the fact that you do.

Bonus, here's a recipe I came up with for the BEST croutons ever. I know, I know. You can't claim recipes are the best based on personal opinion, but once you try them you will understand. It's a magical addition to your salad.


While those are cooking, simply grill up some chicken, cut Romaine Hearts in half lengthwise, brush with olive oil mixed with the same seasonings as the croutons on the cut side, and grill the lettuce for two minutes, as well. Top with croutons, Caesar dressing, and voila! You have an incredible dinner. Just make sure you heed the 250 temperature...low and slow is the key.


Somehow, I don't have a single picture of the final product, so this was the first time we experimented with grilled lettuce. It is now my most favorite way to make a salad, and the only way we do Caesar's around here. If you think salads are boring, you need to come to my house. In love, life, and food...I don't do boring.
