We're going to help you solve it one week at a time and for less than $70.
Alright, its officially a HOT summer! Anyone that knows me, knows I dont complain about heat. Im not the best sport when it comes to winter, and everything that goes along with it- cold, wet, dreary etc.....but "heat" I am in heaven. The hotter it is, the happier I am. Infact I make my family crazy because I dont even like airconditioning. Yesterday, I had many work projects going on, including cleaning my garage, and weeding my yard, so I didnt even come in to make dinner until after 7:00. I wanted to make something easy, quick and light since it was late and the temps were still in uper 80's. So I grabbed 7 ingredients, and dinner was on table in less then 20 minutes. ingredients: 2 chicken breasts $2.29 16 ounces romaine, field greens, iceburg(I used fieldgreens)$1.99 large tomato or 20-30 cherry tomatos $1.99 4 oz blue cheese $1.20 1/2 cup olive oil 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar salt
wisk olive oil and vinegar in a bowl with a couple shakes of salt
toss chicken breasts in 1/4 cup marinade and put on cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes on each side at 350
In meantime when chicken is cooking, prepare lettuce on 4 plates, devide cheese and tomatos and top each salad, evenly distribute remaining salad dressing on each salad
remove chicken from oven, slicing each making sure completely cooked
