Pardon my absence!
January 2, 2010
Sorry, bloggies. My blogging, or lack there of, is a result of my jam packed week in AZ.
Food, first.. naturallly-
I made my papa and myself some steel cut oats the first morning. I topped them with sliced banana, dried cranberry, TJ’s pumpkin butter, pecans, and a little dark chocolate 😉
One day, we went to True Food for lunch!
True Food is a concept restaurant–a collaboration between awesome restaurateur, Sam Fox & health Guru, Dr. Andrew Weil.
Everything is fantastically delicious and nutritious.
I ordered the Quinoa Tabouli salad (quinoa, parsley, beets, pomegranate, almonds, lemon juice, and olive oil over a bed or arugula). Possibly the prettiest thing I’ve ever eaten.
Nick ordered the Turkey Pita Wrap which had grapes, cucumbers, & some kind of yogurt dressing served with sweet potato hash.
For supper one night, I prepared a roasted sweet potato & squash salad with chickpeas & hummus!
My dad missed my cooking.
This hummus is bomb diggity.
Trader Joe’s was just as fantastic as I remembered.
Breakfast, compliments of TJ. TJ’s greek yogurt, TJ’s frozen blueberries, TJ’s Pumpkin Spice Granola, TJ’s pb…
New books! Love both of them. I’m only on Chapter 1 of U.S. of Arugula, and this cookbook is phenomenal!!!
And my dad’s Christmas gift to me!
…wait to see what it can do ;)….
Aside from the food, I had the most sensational time with my friends. Particularly on New Year’s Eve!!
I love them more than any words can describe. This was the best NYE I’ve ever had.
How was yours?
Now off to unpack, grocery shop, & get ready for school Monday!
