Mason Jar Salads


I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Mason Jar Salads!! I normally prep 3 on Sunday night and 3 more on Wednesday night. They stay fresh and super yummy!! Here are some of my layers, from bottom to top:

Shredded Carrots
Cucumbers
Tomatoes
Eggs
Lettuce
Cheese
Chicken

When I wake up in the morning I add the cheese and the chicken. I read somewhere that it's better to wait to add those ingredients until the day you're going to eat your salad. You may not have to wait to add them, but I figure it's better to be safe than sorry. I also keep my salad dressing separate, but from what I've read you can put it in the jars.

Live Oak Brewery


Neil and I love Live Oak Brewery, so we were super excited when we heard about their new brewery opening up just outside of Austin. We grabbed a glass of our favorite beer (Live Oak Hefeweizen) and enjoyed their outdoor area. Great atmosphere...we look forward to going back soon!
