Chef Salad

Chef Salad, along with the Swedish Chef and of course, Chef Boy-R-Dee, is one of my favorite chefs. :) I'm kidding, I'm kidding.

Actually I am boiling some eggs right now, chopping some lettuce, and slicing some lunch meat to make everyone a salad to go tonight. I have PTO at 5:30, my husband is coaching basketball from 6-8, and somehow we need to feed ourselves and the kids. Normally this would send me running straight into the arms of Mickey D, but this challenge is making me plan just a little bit more to make sure I can get a nutritious homemade meal into everyone regardless. I mean, don't get me wrong, I can eat some McDonald's, but the reality is we will be having twice a week basketball and once a week dance lessons for the next 6 weeks, and eating out that often would really REALLY add up quick.

Tonight's salad will feature romaine lettuce, ham, turkey, provolone, carrots and croutons with a choice of dressings each on their own plastic, lidded container. Juice boxes will be served and bottled waters. I really need a good water canteen or container that is easy to clean, insulated, doesn't "sweat" too much and is a good size. Any recommendations out there? We recycle our water bottles, but I'd rather not have them in the first place.


  1. I have a Sigg that I love, but they are pricey. I'm a big Target fan and they always have good bottles in their sports section as well.

  2. Thank you for the recc! Next time I am on the mainland I will go and look at Target. Siiiigh. I miss Target.

  3. I got one made by Stanley (that makes the great thermoses). It's insulated, and has a leak proof lid that screws down inside the top. You unscrew it a little and it lets you drink past the lid. I love it and carry it at work. He bought it at (dare I say it) Walmart.

    Also, I have an insulated neoprene cover for larger reusable water bottles made by Built NY. It keeps things warm or cold and cuts down on the "sweating" problem.

  4. Danke! I have to remember to drink more water here as it warms up. You dehydrate like, "POOF" -- parched!
