Some fun eats from my last few days in Arizona:

Bulked up Beans = Bulked up Belly

I served my Trader Joe’s salsa flavored refried beans Gliding Calm style with lots of sauteed veggies and topped with half an avocado.  This was so filling and so delicious, but the best part of the meal was the view from my in-laws back patio:

Arizona, I miss you. :(

An excellent (read not a frozen pattie from a box) veggie burger with sweet potato fries at BluBurger Grille:

Burger in a lettuce "bun" with too many toppings to remember.

Chris and I flew back to Nashville Sunday afternoon, and I came home to 3 fun packages, but I’m only going to share two with you today.  You’ll have to come back tomorrow for package #3. :)

Now I can stare at Mr. Quaker everyday.  Jay, don't be jealous!

The amazing and talented Emily over at Curly Top sent me a print of a painting she did after I took part in her April Challenge. Emily is an amazing blogger, and I love her sense of style.  Emily, will you please come decorate our house? :)

Package #2 came from the precious LovIN My Tummy Sarah:

Look, Jay Robb love included.

Sarah, you already held a special place in both mine and CD’s heart, but now we love you even more!  Can’t wait to try the Justin’s Almond Butter! Thank you so much!

While CD went to pick up the dogs (we boarded them at a farm an hour outside of Nashville), I unpacked, did laundry, and went to the grocery store.  When I got home, I made Chris a Hugh Jass salad with all kinds of goodies, and instead of making myself one, I had what I really wanted.  The following picture is why I don’t blog every single meal I eat, but I’m just going to put it out there.  I do some pretty bizarre things with my food:

Call it what you will...lazy, gross, disgusting?  I thought it was rather brilliant myself. :)

Lazy, gross, a work of art? Call it what you will, but I thought it was rather brilliant myself. :)

I whipped up a batch of purple cauliflower oat bran, and just dumped it into my jar of almond butter since there were only about 2 spoonfuls left.  I then proceeded to lick the jar clean. Whole grains, vegetables, protein, fat…what more do I need?

Father & son reunited:

Einstein did not leave CD's side all night, or maybe it was the other way around.

Um, Heather Pie…what are these purple chunks floating in the Vita-Mix? Oops, my bad. :)
