A lovely kale salad and I’m back!

So I just looked and realized I haven’t posted anything for a month! I knew it had been a little while, but not that long! Bad Sierra!!!

Anyway I’m back to posting regularly again. Long story real short, I started working again! I took a break from working for about 2 years (for an array of reasons). I’m working part time now, and it has taken up alot of my spare time haha!

I’ve made lots of things in the past month! Too many to even post! I will however post the salad I made today for lunch… It was beyond good and so good for you!! Here’s what I did:

-1-2 cups of raw kale – chopped (ribs removed)
-1 cup raw shredded brussel sprouts (I used the already shredded ones from Trader Joes)
-1/8 cup sliced almonds
-1 tbsp. shaved Parmesan
-2 oz. shredded cooked chicken breast

-Juice from 1/2 lemon
-1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
-sea salt & pepper to taste

Put all of the salad ingredients in bowl. Put all dressing ingredients in separate bowl, whisk together and pour on top of salad. I find that with raw kale, the longer the dressing is on it the better it tastes!



If you think raw kale and raw brussel sprouts don’t sound appealing … This salad will make you change your mind!

Onto other happenings … We celebrated my mom’s birthday this past weekend! We go to her favorite restaurant every year to celebrate! Luna Park is such a great place for birthday’s! The food is fantastic, service is good and atmosphere is the best! If you’re in LA and haven’t been, you must check it out!!

Anyway … I got a lovely strawberry mojito


The place is really dark, so I had to use my flash to take pictures… I must have looked like a tourist but whatever!! I wanted decent photos for my blog!!

My appetizer …


My dinner … The tastiest braised short ribs … Seriously like butter!!


And the grand finale … Home made s’mores … Yes, I said s’mores



How cute is my mom … And how cool is that fake cake with sparklers! Good thing she didn’t have too much hairspray in her hair haha!


We had so much fun!!

Louie was upset that she didn’t get to go … Luckily she got over it and still loves her mama!!
