Hi friends!  It’s been a while – a week exactly.  Things have been crazy with work, but my meals have been delicious – here are some highlights:

Best breakfast: Carrot cake version of my favorite pancake recipe – topped with almond butter and light cream cheese.  Finally a way to use up carrot pulp from my juicer!  Recipe to come.  Perfect for the “Love your Veggies” theme!

Best lunch: Homemade version of a Chipolte salad, with baked tilapia, fish taco style – topped with spicy hummus, roasted peppers and onions, black beans, and guac.  :)

Best appetizer: So, my mom got Downton Abbey season 3 from my Dad for Christmas, and we indulged in some delicious Thai food while watching two episodes.  We’re now two weeks ahead of PBS but I also don’t want to rush through the whole season because then it will be FOREVER until season 4.  Anyhow – some delicious fresh tofu spring rolls – the sweet peanut plum sauce is the kicker.  We also shared pad thai and vegetable skewers.  Mmm.

Best dessert: Single serving (well, I made two – one for me, one for Adam) cupcakes with homemade strawberry cream cheese frosting.  This was our Superbowl watching treat!  I used this recipe.
