Pinterest is the "in" thing!
Everybody, who's anybody, is on Pinterest!
I'm a nobody.
I'm not on Pinterest.
Well, yes I am.
I'm a ghost pinner.
That's right, a ghost pinner.
My mom is on Pinterest.
She had followers.
She had NO pins . . .
NO bulletin boards . . .
NO repins . . .
So in an effort to keep her cool and her followers intrigued, I've started pinning for her!
She's looking cool and I'm seeing some neat things!
Like the salad in a jar.
Not my idea, but I sure thought it was clever.
So I tried it.
Made my salad right in the jar.
It was great.
Actually, my girl cherub tried it first and she really thought it was great.
I couldn't let her have a great experience by herself, so I tried it too.
It was great.
Here's the concept.
Use a mason jar, with a lid, and make your salad upside down.
Just pack your ingredients right in the jar -- starting with the dressing.
This part is hard. I didn't want to "need" more dressing, but I didn't want too much!
Then I put the yellow peppers and onions and carrots in the dressing -- so they could marinate.
Then I added chopped chicken and topped it with chopped tomatoes and any other wet-ish ingredients.
Sprinkled some feta cheese on that and finished it with chopped lettuce.
Put the lid on tight and carried it for lunch!
Either a l-o-n-g fork or a plate to dump it out on would be nice to have!
I made it through lunch without either of those and I was rather happy with my experience!
