I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 13 nieces and nephews (it's about to be 14 because yet another one is due in October!). 5 great-nephews & 5 great-nieces. And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 9 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens, Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.

(For comparison’s sake, a Big Mac has about 550 calories, 10g saturated fat, and 1000mg sodium.)
Crispy Chicken Salad. Meaning it has FRIED chicken instead of grilled chicken. McDonald's, Ruby Tuesday, KFC and Chick-Fil-A all serve them, and they can have upwards of 1,000 calories and 12 grams of saturated fat.
Southwest "Fiesta" Salad. They're also sometimes called "
Taco salads are almost as bad. The one at Taco Bell has 780 calories, 10 grams of fat, and 1,300 milligrams of salt.
Asian Grilled Chicken Salad. It SOUNDS healthy, but the calories from fried noodles, almonds, and Asian-style dressing can add up to 1,200 calories and 12 grams of fat. The one at Applebee's has 2,000 milligrams of salt, which is twice as much as a Big Mac.
Greek Salad. It has a lot of GOOD ingredients, like romaine lettuce, cucumbers, onions, and tomatoes. But the feta, olives, and stuffed grape leaves can add HUNDREDS of extra calories.
