Run like the wind and teen appetites

Thursday: Layered Chicken Cobb Salad

Reflections from the Backcounter

Running is freeing. The wind in your hair and the sun on your face lift your spirits to carefree heights. The rhythmic pounding of shoes on pavement can calm a worried mind, organize scattered thoughts and soothe frazzled nerves. The only thing better than running is watching your son run! Spring brings track season to high school and with it tremendous teen appetites. Track meets run late so there is always the temptation to run for fast food. Track nights are great nights to prepare simple make ahead meals using the crock pot. I must confess, we defaulted to take out Chipotle last night. It was delicious and the break from the kitchen prep and clean up a treat.
Boil the eggs for the salad this morning and prep the salad late this afternoon.
