Chicken & Pita Salad

Well, my calories were good today, but I was a little annoyed with myself. I needed to go to Dollarama on my way to work and pick up some craft supplies. I saw those new Oh Henry Cookie Bars and bought one. Thankfully our dinner this evening was quite low in calories and so it all worked out okay.

I really enjoyed dinner this evening. I always need something quick on a Wednesday evening as I need to be at a youth meeting at 7pm. My husband didn’t enjoy it as much as me, he complained that were too many edamame beans!!
