An Okay Lunch

Cranberry-Walnut Salad

Eh, lunch wasn't very satisfying. Since I was out late last night, I threw together a quick salad this morning- baby spring mix, walnuts, and dried cranberries. I usually really like this combination but today it wasn't really doing it for me. Normally, I add feta but since I'm trying to avoid dairy I left it out. Maybe the lack of feta had something to do with it. I tossed the salad with balsamic vinegar and a little homemade italian dressing.

I had some fresh strawberries and blackberries with the salad. These were the highlight of my lunch.

Even though I used a full ounce of walnuts, I'm still hungry. The salad wasn't very big. I think I'm going to need an afternoon treat.

Chris is on his way down from Duluth so he is picking me up at work within the next hour and a half or so. I'm not sure what the plan is but I'm SO excited to see him since it's been over 3 weeks!

Enjoy your afternoon :)

Ahh, sorry about the salad not being satisfying :0( Maybe add some legumes or something next time?

How exciting that you'll get to see Chris soon! Have fun!

Aaw, have fun!

Too bad your lunch wasn't filling, it looks good though. I'm sure Chris (its weird to call him that)will get you some kind of treat!
