You know I’m all about no oven required lately, since the kitchen is a non-functional mess from the burst pipes. So this Grilled Cobb Salad is getting extra action around here because it’s easy to throw together. But more because everyone in my family loves to pick through it.
By picking through, I mean, Cole and Naomi arm wrestle over the avocados—this usually ends in Naomi giving into his manipulating pleas. But in all honesty, it kinda makes sense since she hoards all the corn. I get the majority of the chicken and the little guy gets dibs on the eggs. The bacon goes to the person who can grab for it the fastest. The tomatoes are willingly given to Naomi by all of us. And finally, the greens are evenly divided so we have a balanced meal.
It’s not perfect, but it’s the way we do dinner a lot. Al a carte and a little family-style. But as of late, it’s a lot more family-style since we are without a kitchen, so I’m doing what I can to minimize dishes. If you’ve been watching my Insta Stories, then you know what I mean–doing dishes in the backyard with a kiddie pool is not fun.
Two more weeks and life should be back to normal. Until then I’ll be grilling what I can and borrowing kitchens from friends and family when it makes the most sense.
