Slaw, salads, and carbs

SLAW

Always on the quest for yummy food as well good-for-you food I found this site which has amazing photos and recipes.

I tried a simplified version of the Roasted Sesame Winter Slaw and it’s pretty good- and only 3 ingredients! I used red cabbage, carrots and a yummy tahini sauce from Trader Joe’s.

While I do enjoy healthy and good-for-you foods, I also love carbs and I soo want to try this Easy Buffalo Chicken Stromboli. Maybe I can try it and work to make this recipe a little healthier…

Birthday! (Part 1 – work)

How fun to have a B-day celebration at work…when you have fun coworkers. They decorated, picked up lunch from my favorite sandwich place (Coppola’s Deli-where everything is super tasty, but the Grilled Smoked Turkey (below) on their homemade bread is D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! please be sure to say “delicious” about 10 octaves higher), AND they topped it all off with a yummy, homemade dessert (below)! Let the celebration and eating begin!!
