Piggies & Pizza!

We went to the Del Mar Fair today (post on that later)...or San Diego County Fair, excuse me! 

A first--Riley didn't have a bow to match with her horsey shirt! Can you imagine the panic? So, I finally used those teeny tiny plastic ponytail holders on her super fine and straight hair to create her very first Piggy Tails! Fitting since we watched the pig races first at the fair. 

Once we were home from a long and fun day, Riley made a pepperoni pizza while I made a chipotle chicken salad Sierra and I love...and you might, too!

Chipotle Chicken Taco Salad
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2/3 cup light sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon minced chipotle chile, canned in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 2 cups chopped roasted skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 2 breasts)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup diced peeled avocado
  • 1/3 cup thinly vertically sliced red onion
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (8 3/4-ounce) can no-salt-added whole-kernel corn, rinsed and drained
To prepare dressing, combine first 7 ingredients, stirring well.
To prepare salad, combine lettuce and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle dressing over salad; toss gently to coat. Serve immediately.
Tip: Add a spoonful of adobo sauce for a spicier salad. Kidney or pinto beans also taste great in this dish.

  1. Love those piggie tails and can't wait until Emme can sport them too! P.S. YUM!

  2. Adorable! We just convinced Livvy that pigtails are fun (she gets to pick out the colors of the bands and that's what convinced her ;)). And she really hates anything in her hair! Too cute.
