YOU HAD ME AT HELLO!
LUNCHES ARE ALWAYS BETTER WITH FRIENDS,
ESPECIALLY WITH YOUR BEST FRIEND!
Now that the kiddos are in school, Jep and I try to each lunch together as often as possible. Even if you have a busy schedule, it’s important to stop and enjoy spending a little quiet quality time together. If you work outside the house, you can easily prepare lunch the night before or morning of and meet up at the park or somewhere convenient. One of our favorite lunches is a grilled chicken tenderloin salad.

Hidden Valley Ranch
Mix all the ingredients together until well blended (I like to use a whisk). Or follow the directions on the back of the package. Chill in refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
Grilled Chicken Tenderlion Salad
Start off with the chicken tenderloins. (Remember to stay sanitary when dealing with chicken)! Trim away all fat and cut into small cubes. (I cook with olive oil so you won’t need the fat).
Put about 1/4 cup of olive oil into a stainless steal pan. ( Mines from Williams-Sonoma)
Add chicken and season to your taste. I use sea salt, Tony’s Chachere’s, black pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. If you use Worcestershire sauce wait until the outside of the chicken is cooked to add.
Cook on low heat until chicken is done. (chicken is not done)
Boil your eggs. (Mine are organic, fresh from my chickens out back).
SALAD PREP TIME!
Jep and I try to take any chance we can get to spend
time together. When we aren’t filming we are usually
together. I think we make a pretty good team! Wink Wink!
REMEMBER: Wash and Chop up the lettuce.
Wash and chop up red and green bell peppers. Make sure you get all the seeds out.
Wash and chop up cucumber.
I love cucumber, but it’s not Jep’s fave
so I only add a little, but you can add as much as you’d like.
Chop purple onion fine. Then, add all the veggies together in a salad dish.
So proud to have organic eggs straight from our chickens.
Shell and chop!
I love my KitchenAid cheese grater, but any grater will work. Add as much cheese as you would like.
The Robertson family LOVES cheese… on literally everything!
This chicken is good on anything. Our kids love for me to make this chicken for quesadillas, and a la carte.
Prayer is BIG part of our lives. Not just before dinner or at church, but a daily must.
I will have to admit that ranch is NOT Jep’s fave… he’s a thousand island fan, BUT he does love homemade ranch!
Homemade is always better!
Enjoying good food with my man…my best friend.
There is a tutorial on how to make the cute wood chalkboard in the create section!
