If you haven't already, enter yourself in the drawing for the Life Sprouts Mini Sprouter 2 Seed Pack by leaving a comment on the last post. I will do the drawing on Thanksgiving Day--giving a lucky person something else to be thankful for.
In the meantime, here is a great recipe for a yummy pasta salad. It's our family favorite. A good friend, Deanna, made it for us when my twins were in the NICU during their two-month stay. One funny thing about it, we think the leftovers are better than the fresh salad so you can easily make it the night before or make a big batch to have some for lunch the following day.
32 oz spiral whole wheat pasta
1 can olives (sliced)
1-2 chicken breasts--cooked and cubed
1-2 appled (chopped)
1/2 lb grapes (halved)
1 cup Newman's Olive Oil and Vinegar salad dressing (you may need to add a little extra if needed)
1 1/2 T Italian seasoning
1 cucumber--diced (optional)
2 cups spinach--sliced (optional)
salt and pepper
