Yup, it's chick food. And I fed it to my man. For dinner.
Sometimes I am mean like that.
Except, really, I am not that mean. If you think about it. I am very, very nice. Because I am making sure he is healthy and lives a long time. I like him a lot and would kinda like to keep him around.
As great as steak and potatoes are, those are not the foods that keep us kicking for a good, long time.
He can have his steak and potatoes once in awhile (and I will not complain as I love them as well!) and then he can have a healthy whole-meal-salad once in awhile.
The best part is that he doesn't complain. In fact, he likes my chick food. Which maybe means it's not so much chick food as it is people food.
This can be a whole meal by itself, or you can add some bread to accompany it, if you choose. I choose yes.
