Weekend Eats

I'm going to begin with my Thursday eats...while watching TV I came up with the ideas of making a portabella mushroom pizza.
It was delicious, I ate two of them.  I baked the portabella for about 8 minutes then added the toppings...marinara, Daiya Mozzarella cheese and basil. Baked for another 10 minutes.  It was so good and I will be making these again!

Friday is usually a shopping day for me.  I don't work and I sleep in.  All that usually throws me off my eating schedule.  I had my smoothie around 11:00 them hit the streets to do some grocery shopping.  Went to...
Here is where I buy my rice paper for my spring rolls and other delicious asian goodies...Did I mention spring rolls???  Made a bunch later that day!!
Also went to BJ's and bought 2 big bags of Gardein Seven grain tenders.  Hubby and I enjoyed those for dinner.  I made myself a lettuce taco and buffaloed the tenders and topped with guacamole.
I slept in a little on Saturday...As I was lying in bed I heard some noise coming from the kitchen, sounding like someone was frying something??? "What was going on?"  I thought to myself.  I walked downstairs and hubby was frying the spring rolls!!!! Oh no, I thought to myself, until I tasted one.  Surprise, surprise, they were Good!  A little messy, but good.  So this is what I did...I rolled more rolls, adding cabbage and spicy thai walnut meat, and here is what we got...
They were divine.  Hubby said that he just needed something cooked and I can respect that!   Glad that he did because they were fabulous.  He wants me to say that they were inspired by him...and they were!

Went to a Birthday Club Celebration Saturday afternoon.  The restaurant that was chosen is called Houlihans.  My good friend chose this place because of the vegan/vegetarian options.  I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by the selections.  I ordered the Tuscan white bean salad.  It was so good that I couldn't wait to get home to recreate.  And that is what I did today.
Again, delicious.  I could tell that hubby was not too excited about the beans so I made his with quinoa pasta and he loved it.
The weekend is over...must mentally prepare for the work week!   
Make it with Love!
