There’s a place here in St. Louis we like to call Heaven On Earth. Ok, it’s actually called St. Louis Bread Company (also known as Panera Bread in places not as cool as St. Louis). I made up the heaven part. But it’s seriously amazing. So amazing that I might possibly get married at one of them. I shall wed the Presto French Fry cutter and you’re all invited. Oh wait, someone already stole my idea. But anyway, I love that place. You walk in and it’s almost as if the pumpkin muffies and broccoli cheddar soup are calling out to you I’m yummy!!!!
And now that I’ve just written about absolutely nothing, here’s the part of the post where I talk about the food I devoured.
At Bread Co., there’s this magical dish called Asian Sesame Chicken salad. It is the only salad in the world I can eat without getting grossed out. No lie. I’m a weirdly picky eater… But the other day my mom and I went to the store and guess what I saw?
BOOM. Asian Sesame dressing. I’m pretty sure when I first saw it, I looked like this.Ok, I didn’t look like that at all. Sorry. I didn’t know the dressing was actually sold in stores, since it’s such a wonderful food. I’m pretty sure I could chug this stuff by the bottle. Ok, not really, but almost! Funny thing is that my finding of it was preceded by this conversation.
Mom: Yes…? *can already see, using her magical Mom powers, where this conversation is going*
Me: I’m always so hungry.
Mom: That’s nice. *suddenly becomes fascinated by the produce*
Me: Well….., what should I do so I don’t eat 24/7?
Mom: *obviously trying to avoid me at this point* I don’t know, eat salad or something.
Me: Seriously. (It wasn’t even phrased as a question)
Mom: Yes. Go get some lettuce.
Me: But salad is so boring.
Mom: Then get fun stuff to put in it.
Me: Like what, dwarfs and rainbows?!?!
Mom: *thinks that she’s raised a lunatic as a daughter* Um, sure.
And that’s about when I found the salad dressing. Great story, I know. I’ll spare you all and never tell it again.
It’s alright, you may stare at it. Feel free to bask in its glow…
This is a super easy salad and scary delicious. The only ingredients I added were Romaine lettuce (at least, I’m pretty sure it was Romaine… all I know is that it was green and leafy.), grilled chicken, cilantro, chow mein noodles and the dressing. Didn’t taste as great as the real one, but it still was the best salad. Ever.
