Tex-Mex Chicken Quinoa Salad

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to ride on the wings of a Bald Eagle through the majestic mountains of Yosemite at the break of a crisp spring dawn?


Oh gosh me either, are you kidding? I’m so not a risk taker. But I can imagine that eating this Tex-Mex Chicken Quinoa salad comes somewhere pretty.dern.close.

What am I even saying to you. That makes NO sense at all.

It’d be more like Yellowstone.

I’m gonna be honest with ya. I have no stories for you today. I’m all dried up. It’s like a frickin’ barren wasteland up there. I think I just saw a tumbleweed . . . tumble by.

Actually, I do have something to say. See this dude in the picture right here? Two things:

1) I sure do dig him.

2) It’s our 8-year anniv today. Or as we’ve been saying since JT made his 5th hosting appearance on SNL, AVERNERSARY. I’m sorry, but Monica and Chandler champagne? I die. I die.dead.gone.

Look at my face. I think I just said, “This cake just goosed me!”

I seriously can’t believe this guy digs me.

Here’s that Cheeeecken Quinoa Majestic Mountain Eagle Wings Salad!

    Happy anniversary! The interwebs tell me that on your 8th anniversary the traditional gift is something bronze. A bronzed eagle statue?
