Chef Salad with Crispy Cheese Crackers

I have decided that there will probably be lots of tomato plants lining the streets of gold in heaven. Every time I make a salad and include the fresh tomatoes from our garden, I am reminded of God’s goodness. There is so much yum in a summertime fresh tomato.

Last week, we had some leftover chicken which we added to lettuce and tomatoes with shredded cheese for a quick lunch. I stirred in some Homemade Ranch Dressing and loved every single bite.

When I told the boys we were having Chef Salad with Crispy Cheese Crackers for lunch, they weren’t super excited. (They’d have been happier if I’d announced we were having bacon, no doubt.)

But as they worked their way through the meal, munching on the homemade crackers with their salads, even my youngest had to admit, “Mom, this is actually a really good lunch.”

Actually? Yes, how shocking.

Whatever. I was in the middle of eating fresh tomatoes straight from heaven. They could say whatever they wanted.
