Back for real this time

Well moving, blogging and being a new Mommy was more than I could take. Now we are moved in and back to our normal lives.

I could not sleep last night, and as I was laying awake I was thinking how much I have missed creating. I have been on a bit of a cooking hiatus because everything was in boxes. I long to sew, but can't because my sewing machine eats fabric. When I scrapbook I like to lay things out everywhere, and we just didn't have the space. My heart has a need to create. I am coming to understand my need to make beautiful things better after I created my amazing baby Eli.

So I am recommitting myself to the things that make me feel complete and happy.

I made this salad a few weeks ago with leftover cabbage from St. Patrick's day. It is easy, super fast to throw together and yummy!

Oriental Chicken Salad
1/2 head of cabbage, thinly sliced
1-2 cups chicken, cooked and diced
2 green onions, chopped fine
1 package Top Ramen noodles, broken
2 Tablespoons sesame seeds
2 Tablespoons slivered almonds

1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 packet Top Ramen seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons sugar
3 Tablespoons vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Combine all salad ingredients, wisk together dressing, mix with salad and enjoy!

It looks like there's a little bunny or something poking it's head up in the back of the salad!
