"baby, what do you know?!"

pete & i were in desperate need to go grocery shopping after weeks of eating out (& junk at that!) we finally made it to the pathmark.
as you can see we were down to the bare minimum! (i had just put the chicken & eggs in when i deciced to take the picture) kinda sad if you ask me, especially for someone that loves to cook!
then after a fun filled hour at the store we had a plentiful fridge. we made a pack that for the rest of the week we would only eat what we bought today & what we would make. after spending a silly amount of money on eating out in july, our wallets need this much needed break. (not to mention our bodies!) so tonight we hopped right to it & made "grilled chicken ranch pitas" yum! pete is really good at coming up with quick an easy meals & together pitas we made. it was alot of fun to share our tiny little kitchen and enjoy our well executed meal.
(sorry for the camera phone picture, i couldn't find my digital at the moment)

Here is the run down of the "recipe"

Grilled Chicken Ranch Pitas
2 chicken breast, grilled & cut into strips
1 cup of chopped lettuce
half of a small onion, finely chopped
half of a cucumber, chopped
1/2 cup of grape tomatoes, quatered
1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese (or any shredded cheese you like)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper (we like our food peppery)
2 tablespoons of lite ranch dressing
2 warmed pitas, spilt in half

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix well. Fill pitas & enjoy!

the nice thing about this meal is that its super easy, filling, & not all that bad for you! pitas are also a great meal starter, pete & i kept coming up with ideas of what to fill the rest of our pitas with. hope y'all enjoy it just as much as we did!

Now Playing: Voxtrot - "Berlin, without return" ( i am currently obsessed with this song, its been on loop all day, <3)
