Simple Greek Quinoa Dinner Omelets with Feta and Tzatziki.
Some days just need a little Buffalo Sauce.
Ok, maybe a lot of buffalo sauce and a little blue cheese, because I am a blue cheese freak.
I know some of you may not be blue cheese lovers, but over here it’s the bomb. If you’re not a fan, I am sorry, just swap it for cheddar or goat cheese, but in my opinion buffalo sauce always needs a little blue cheese to accompany it. Always.
How do you guys feel about onion rings though?
My family use to say they hated them, so I just assumed I did too.
Well, what the heck was I thinking. Onion rings are awesome, and I spent nineteen years of my life thinking they were gross. Thanks a lot mom and dad. They are not gross and when they are baked to a crunchy perfection they make the perfect snack.
That became apparent the other day when my eldest brother Creighton walked in the door and literally starting mowing these. I mean, like he could not eat them fast enough.
But he does eat like it is his job. No literally he does. I have never met a person who loves food so much. I feel like he is always eating, at times I wonder if he ever gets full. I think I have come to the conclusion that he just does not get full. Like at all. And man, do not even come near him after he works out unless you have food. Workouts mean he actually did something other than eat, which then makes him ravenous.
It is scary.
But I gotta love him because he is always pumped on whatever I am making.
Unless of course it is salad.
That would mean he would be eating something without meat and that is just not even an option in his brain. Yeah, he is one of those, “its gotta have meat in it” dudes. No meat, no game.
FYI, it is getting a little old.
Give the guy some color please!
So I compromised.
Buffalo chicken is always a good compromise, and I got the kid (err more like grown man) to eat something green, something red and something orange.
Yay! Everyone can thank me for saving him from a heart attack. Just sayin.
Ok, wait. That makes it sound like he is un-healthy. He’s not, promise. But he really does eat too much meat.
Anyway, since Creigh is only here for a little while longer. (he is doing this whole month-long Christmas Vacay thing – I kind of wish I was doing the same) I feel like I have to make some of his favorites.
And onion rings are one of his favorites. Of course, he is totally used to the fried ones so I was a little wary of what he would think of these, but it was apparent by the mowing he did within thirty seconds of walking through the door that he still loved um. Sweet!
I just improved his diet immensely. My mom should totally be thanking me for this.
Oh and this salad?
It is totally worthy of that big thing coming up that starts with Super and ends with Bowl. I know I am a tad early to the Superbowl frenzy, but football food is good, and this is healthified football.
One last thing. Do not skip this blue cheese guacamole. Just don’t. It works with these flavors like no other. So good.

This is the kind of salad that I like to think is the ultimate “score”!
Hey Teighan – sorry, you may have answered this already but I haven’t read all the comments. Do you think I could pre-make and bake the onions and chicken (minus the buffalo sauce) the night before and then bake them at a lower temp for a little longer the next night to heat them back up and be ready to serve?
Hey Ashley! I think that will work great! Hope you love this salad and let me know if you have any other questions.
