Chicken Caesar Salad

I asked for salad last night for dinner, and Caesar it was. Even though the lettuce is the only salad thing about it. It has BACON in it, it’s not really salad! :p

Anyway, I’m told the following are essential to a great Caesar…

Chicken Caesar Salad

Freshly cooked bacon, let to lose some fats on the paper towel.

Crispy crunchy lettuce. There is a type of lettuce at woolies called the “sweet crunch” lettuce that is preferable to cos. Washed and thoroughly dried. Either with a salad spinner (that we don’t have) or again, lie on and pat dry with paper towel.

Shredded chicken breast. From a bbq chook. But the breast meat only (I would use it all. But that’s me!)

And the “Right” dressing (Cardini’s Caesar Salad Dressing) some anchovies, croutons (we usually get Praise croutons) and shaved Parmesan cheese (Mil Lel in this case).

And no egg. Don’t ruin it!

It was our every intention to head to Wallsend to the Krank It! festival at the start of April…. a plan foiled by going on the Saturday, and it being a one day event on the Sunday….. So we watched some of the cars coming into town while trying a pub lunch at The Lemon Grove Hotel.

After much deliberation, Bruce had a schnitzel with prawn mornay sauce and such delicious chips!

While I had a chicken salad, which was full of yums and washed down with a glass of Chardy :)

When in Rome!

When organising to catch up one evening with a friend, I wasn’t sure if we’d be doing coffee, dinner, or dessert, so headed back to Citrus Cafe. Good move, as the salads we got were awesome :)

Rish’s parents got back from overseas on the weekend, so the hoardes went to Grind on Darby for lunch on Sunday.

Grind Cafe, Newcastle

My coffee was good. Went down well.

A couple of bowls of smashed chats. Too much smashing! Not all could be easily eaten. :\

Salt and pepper squid was ordered by 4 I think. And I’m told nice, but not as fresh as some times.

Roast pumpkin salad. Shame they put in red onion instead of olives :( Thanks for asking for me olives, Rish!

Lovely day today, yes, i did sleep in and miss the morning gym session, but I sweated like crazy in my make up one tonight!!! That’ll teach me to get up nice and early :)

The CP Challenge kicks off tomorrow. It’s one of those pedometer things, do 10k steps a day, raise money, have fun. I’l looking forward to fighting with the numbers on the pedometer ;) Sign up is still open til the end of the week if you want to enter a team of four. It runs for eight weeks. Have you ever counted your steps with a pedometer for weeks? How did it go?

Oatley Pub

Feeling very welcomed by my flatmate. We went with some of her friends to the Oatley Pub for dinner. After digging into some hot chips, I went a much needed salad for dinner, while the others raves about the pizzas.

Sheet chilli and lime squid callamari

We were going to make our own calamari, however Woolies were out if the fresh stuff, so we got a pack of De Costi chili and lime calamari and built a salad around it. Light and yum! And not too stingy on my mouth ulcers…)
