Girlfriend time is important. It doesn't matter how old you are or how busy you get, you must make time for your girlfriends. My friend Diane & I had a girlfriend day today; she had a lot of plants to put into pots and the kids were at their dad's for the weekend. I simply had to go out to her place for a visit, so we made a day of it. We started out with a trip to the nursery in a neighboring town to pick up pots & had a great lunch of salad with yummy little croissant sandwiches before we got to work. The sandwiches were Diane's idea. Call it Divine Inspiration, but she said, "Oh! I know what we can do with these!" And before I knew it, she'd sliced one in half, added a dollop of fat-free vanilla yogurt and tossed in some berries. Voila! The perfect addition to a healthy salad - good for you and tasty, too.The salad was just a mix of things from the produce section: Dole Greener Selection salad blend, organic yellow baby carrots, Cherubs cherry tomatoes, shredded colby cheese and sunflower seeds topped with a Kraft Fat-Free Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing. Then on the side we had a little more of the yogurt topped with the fresh berries. It was really filling for a salad! And of course, being a "girlfriends day", we had to have a glass or two - what the heck, a whole bottle - of Barefoot Pinot Grigio. If you haven't tried that one, I highly recommend it - it's a light, fruity wine that's good with a salad or just for drinking when you're out with the girls.
And guys, I'm not leaving you out, either - guy time is important, too - especially because it gives us girls a break :)
