Eat the Rainbow Chicken Salad πŸ˜‡

Well – it’s certainly warmed up, so to continue my fridge clearing and meal planning, we are having a salad – a super size, Eat the Rainbow salad – or Buddha Bowls as they are being called – not vegan, but could easily be, and perfect for late spring and summer.

leftover Chicken, baby gem lettuce, Advacado, celery, cucumber, pepper, Sweetcorn, pickled red cabbage, boiled eggs, tomatoes, blue cheese dressing and grated manchego cheese. Β Ohh and some Homemade Bread πŸ˜‰

I am cutting the baby gem lettuce into 4 and laying in the bowls, then add the rest of the veg.

The left over Chicken goes on top with a side of my quick pickledΒ Red CabbageΒ then add the dressing.

A no cook wonder πŸ˜‡

The bread is my usual Thermomix recipe – 300ml water and a pack of dried yeast into the mug and ‘cooked’ at heat 37, speed 1 for 2 minutes till bubbles appear from the yeast.

Add 500g of bread flour, a pinch of sea salt and mix on dough setting for 3/4 minutes till done. Β Turn out and leave to rise for at least an hour.

I am splitting the dough in 2 to make 2 baguettes- one for tonight and one for Saturday night – preplanning πŸ‘ Leave to rise again for at least 30 minutes then into a preheated oven (200) – I chuck a cup of water into a tray at the bottom of th oven to create steam, which makes it crusty

Salad, Homemade crusty bread with butter – bliss x

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
