I had a Sweet Peanut Sesame Shoa Bing from the Asian market. I found these by accident once and we liked them so much, now I pick them up for a treat occasionally.

Lunch (1:00pm)

I was at Mother’s Market doing some marketing, I noticed they were filling the hot bar with lunch items that smelled really good. I picked up one of these Soy and Mozzarella Cheese Tacos to take home and it was as good as they smelled.

For dinner, we had a recipe I was trying out for the Surprise Recipe Swap at Hungry Little Girl. I made Bacon Parmesan Broiler Avocados and they were very tasty (recipe here).

Dinner (7:30pm)

My new favorite dinner, that I have been making several nights a week for some time now. Roasted onion, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, zucchini, some sort of meat, artichoke hummus, tzatziki and avocado. This makes me so happy, sometimes I mix-up the vegetables or add chicken or tofu but basically I use the some formula.

Dessert (6:15pm)

My husband took me to Wildflour Cupcakes to get a treat.  I had a chocolate peanut butter cupcake. We learned a interesting trick from Samar, the helpful girl at the counter, she suggested that we microwave the cupcakes for 20 to 30 seconds. It makes the cupcakes warm and gooey inside. 🙂
