Some fun eats from my last few days in Arizona:
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:
An excellent (read not a frozen pattie from a box) veggie burger with sweet potato fries at BluBurger Grille:
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.
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:
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:
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?

CD’s Random Comment of the Day:
Um, Heather Pie…what are these purple chunks floating in the Vita-Mix? Oops, my bad.
