Spinach+Cheese Please!

Hey everyone! how is the end of your week going? We just celebrated Derek’s birthday which was foodie bliss & I completely forgot to bring along my camera. Eats for the day included a pumpkin “muffie” from Panera Bread, a few pumpkin lattes (that I sooo don’t feel guilty about), self serve frozen yogurt with fresh fruit & chocolate chip toppings, pizza, some Blue Moon Ale, and best of all… a stuffed avocado!! I was so excited when I saw this on our lunch menu. It was open faced & stuffed with apples, diced chicken, and bacon. I loved it so much I think I’m going to re-create it minus the bacon asap.  We also went to the Sacramento Kings game and enjoyed the usual greasy food you would expect to eat at any sporting event but I loved it.

I’m back home now which means back to my normal eats.

I started the day off early (4:30 am) with two slices of toast topped with organic peanut butter & pomegranate arils plus a cup of coffee.


Then I headed off to the gym to train a few clients & took a trip to the grocery store to pick up some produce & a few other staples.


I’m making an eggplant parmesan for the first time tonight, wish me luck! Derek also picked out some New York steaks that I didn’t take a picture of because the sight of raw steak makes me want to puke.

Snack was a cup of yogurt with ground flax & more pomegranate arils.


I’m so addicted to them right now. Something I never mentioned is that I live on a pomegranate orchard. We have a little over a thousand trees but they’re still babies & the wait for them to grow is killing me. In a year or two I will be in pomegranate heaven! For now we’re just having fun chasing Bella through the orchard, she loves it!

After I munched on that I took Bella to play outside & “help” feed the chickens. Then we came back inside so I could make lunch which was raviolis with wilted spinach & sautéed mushrooms & a few slices of horseradish cheese.


Spinach+cheese+more spinach+more cheese= my kind of lunch!  If you haven’t tried horseradish cheese you need to go to Costco & get some, it’s seriously addicting!

Now I’m just chilling drinking another cup of coffee before I need to start dinner. I’m going to start it early incase I screw it up & have to make something else. It doesn’t look complicated, I just don’t have much experience with eggplant. 

I may or may not try to make Mama Pea's peanut butter cookie dough balls that I’ve seen popping up everywhere. They look too good to not make.

See you guys later, hopefully with an eggplant dinner post!
