Hey friends! It’s THE WEEKEND What are you up to? My friend Hayley gets in from Atlanta later this morning and besides baby shower adventures, we have a few shenanigans planned. It should be a lot of fun.
For dinner last night, I had my heart set on a new type of pizza- I had been scheming it in my brain all day. All I needed to do was stop and get the ingredients, but after the Pilot got off work and we chilled at the madre’s for a little while, we realized it was 8:30 and we were both starving. No time to mess around with pizza.
Renee’s Organic Oven to the rescue! The Pilot ordered himself a sandwich, and got me this AMAZING hummus tostada with goat cheese instead of feta. It had a crunchy corn crust, hummus, veggies, salad greens and goat cheese. I topped it with some Goddess dressing + red chili flakes, and it was everything I could wish for.
This morning, I made a quick egg-rito
which I couldn’t roll up, since the tortilla was too crispy. I love Trader Joe’s brown rice tortillas, but if you don’t act quickly, they get hard fast (I’m not even going to say it, haha).
Along with some candy cane dark chocolate almond milk
I’m off to take LaBlast from the creator himself (so excited!) and then to the airport.
See ya later today!
*Hope all of my friends at Foodbuzz and Dole continue to have an amazing time- wish I could have been there! If you’re in San Francisco, please eat a block of goat gouda from Cowgirl Creamery for me
