Day 123 - Valentine's Day Salad

Spinach Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette, Orzo Pasta Salad, Oven Fried Shrimp.

Today, we're featuring a Valentine's lunch!  How in the world is a spinach salad related to Valentine's, you ask?  Because it's a pretty light lunch.  Let's be honest, almost everyone has a heavy evening meal on Valentine's.  You're either going out to eat, cooking something elaborate for the people you love, or emotionally eating because Hallmark and society tell you that your single status is sad. 

You are not sad, for the record.  You are wonderful just as you are, whether you are single, happily married, unhappily married, or somewhere between any of those.  That said, there's nothing wrong with indulging your awesomeness with a little extra chocolate tonight!

And, so, enters the healthy lunch.  I've got frozen pizza and wine on the menu at home tonight (heck yeah, I know I'm fancy!  That was sarcasm...), so for lunch today I've got a spinach salad with feta and Dijon vinaigrette, orzo salad, and oven fried shrimp.  No recipes today, nothing fancy, just a good cold lunch.

Happy Valentine's Day. Hug someone you love and have an extra treat for me!   Pin It Now!
