I love veggies that pick up the flavors of whatever you throw at them.
The roasted eggplant in my lunchtime noodle bowl really meshed with the cheesy flavors of the Parmesan and Laughing Cow light original Swiss cheese.
It was a cheesy, creamy noodle bowl with the added nutritional punch of eggplant and steamed spinach.
I thought I might miss my beloved marinara sauce when I was throwing all the ingredients together, but the two cheeses were strong and definitely didn’t make me miss my favorite red sauce. I will surely be making this noodle bowl again in the future!
Snack time today was worthy of a mention.
The blueberry bliss Luna bar arrived in the goodie bag from Janetha yesterday and I knew it would make the perfect snack around 10:30 this morning.
The taste actually reminded me a lot of blueberry Nutri-Grain bars, but the texture was different. It was yummy!
Tonight I am meeting up with some of my girlfriends at Season’s 52, my favorite restaurant on the planet!
We’re celebrating my birthday since I haven’t seen any of them since I turned the big 2-5.
If it’s available online, I like to check out a restaurant’s menu ahead of time and have a few yummy dishes in mind before I arrive for a meal.
Several dishes are currently calling to me…
Of the following entrees, which would you choose?
- Caramelized Sea Scallops grilled and served with roasted asparagus and sundried tomato pearl pasta
- Grilled Boneless Rainbow Trout with parsley new potatoes, fresh roasted vegetables and broiled lemon
- Spring Market Vegetable Plate with cranberry almond tabbouleh, fennel, plum tomatoes and grilled tofu
- Garlic Chicken Flatbread with balsamic red onions, roasted red peppers and Mozzarella cheese
I’m leaning toward the scallops at the moment…
